When to Use Them

Use “Reminders” for various non-time-specific activities like:

  1. “Cancel appointment” - a prompt to cancel doctor’s or vet’s appointments.

  2. "Drink water" - a gentle nudge to stay hydrated throughout the day.

  3. "Email John" - a prompt to contact a colleague or friend.

  4. "Pick up dry cleaning" - a memo about personal errands.

  5. "Order office supplies" - a note for administrative tasks.

Leverage these tasks to streamline your list and focus on time-specific responsibilities more effectively.
