As I was setting up the food spread for my NYE party, I remembered thinking last year post-party that I wanted to serve half the volume of food. Folks in DC just ate less at parties than ones in NYC.
Not the most useful timing for remembering. So this year, I scheduled an email to go out to me two weeks before NYE with the appropriate sized menu for the night.
Recently, I suggested writing emails to yourself as a reflective process, but these emails can also be incredibly practical to remember what you’ve learned when it matters. Because I want every trick to reduce my mental load.
