Depends on what it is I need to remember. If it is appointments, I have them set on my cell phone and my works calendar, so that way I have reminders for them. If it is something I can make out a list for, then I do that. If I can make a recording on my cell phone for what I need to remember, then I do that also. Like if I am at a store and I realize I need to do something when I get home, I record it on the cell, have a reminder set to play when I think I will be home. All of these tricks seem to keep me moving pretty good and not forget things I need to do.

I guess that is what I am going to have to do..it's not dementia for me..my only reason for forgetting is downright laziness..I don't take time to make a list of things I have to do:(

even i have a real bad memory i try to remember things but when im busy i cant.. the best solution that works for me is that i make a list of thing i have to do on my cell phone and set a reminder. u can make it on paper if u dont have this option in ur cell phone.. u can even set reminders in ur computer.. i have seen such softwares that reminds u for ur "to do" things. hope they work for u too :)

I agree ..the list is the answer..but I hate lists..I can't stand them. I guess because I love freedom..and lists..seem to restrict you ..indirectly..i dont know

I am absolutely horrible at remembering what I'm doing. I can forget midstride if I'm distracted. It's just having so much going on at one time, I think. I've wondered if I shouldn't put post-its on my forhead!:)!

Hey that' not a bad idea ..post its..but what if we forget they are there..I remember one time looking all over for my glasses..(they are lost now I have to get new ones;)) and I searched and searched all around the house..I turned to my friend "angie" who was with me visiting..and asked if she saw them..I was wearing them!! lol

Since working in a field where going back couple of days to a situation and recalling facts is an essential part of my job, i try to recall things at least 2 times within 10 mins so it stays in my memory. Another way to do it is to say it loud. Then try writing it down, because visual is good way to keep in memory. Try it and let me know. :)

I have quite a good memory but I try to do so many things together that I need to organize the things that I need to do. I make lists for a lot of stuff and keep ticking them off as and when I do it. My mom's too lazy even to make a list!!

Well. Use a small note pad make a list keep in your purse. or But a address book or take a keychain with a little note book on it make your lists... punch a paper hole punch hole in a post it note pad, put it on a string on your lanyard or on your keychain with your list as you complete it through them away... - DNatureofDTrain
