I seriously count on my calendar to keep track of what I’m supposed to do, and when, and it’s my first-used tool in just about everything I do. I calendar (in Outlook) everything during my work day (generally 8a-6p, M-R). If my day is tight, I even calendar time to eat. Tasks are calendared, too. It’s all on the calendar.
