For a while, I’ve been using Google Calendar and Google Tasks to raise the level of my consciousness or awareness about my life, thoughts, habits, and actions. I’ve used several other apps to get organized, but I’d like to stick to Google Calendar for the following three reasons:
- You can look into your past life very easily, or even search some special occasions or events, thereby increasing your metacognition or awareness about your current behavior as you know that what you do now is being recorded for future evaluation.
- Your to-do list on Google Calendar also includes Google Tasks, and what you do on your desktop is easily synched with your mobile app, or vice versa.
- This app can remind you about some future meetings, events, occasions, etc. so that you won’t need to be worried about forgetting them. Furthermore, you can use various colors regarding your various tasks, which is so useful and intriguing for me.
