Prioritizing Routines and Reminders

I created a big folder for each of the classes this fall. The outside has reminders for me and any public info I am tracking. I put all the possible routines and reminders on the front… and there were over one hundred ideas.

Most of the 100+ ideas won’t be a daily occurrence. Some are things that will only happen once in four years. No matter what, I need to really figure out which ideas stay and which get reviewed over time.

Here’s the list. Some if it only makes sense to me, ask if there is something intriguing.
