It’s 6am. Time to eat breakfast. At least that’s what your electronic planner says. It beeps on the computer on your desk.
You ignore it. You’re not hungry.
It beeps again.
You’re still not hungry.
Now it starts to beep incessantly. Not only have you not had breakfast, but now it’s time to take a shower. You need to do what it says.
But you’re in the middle of a project. You need to finish this project.
But the planner doesn’t care.
Now you’ve made it really mad. Not only have you not had breakfast and taken a shower, but you now it’s time to get dressed.
You look down. You’re still in your pajamas.
The planner now roars… BEEP… BEEP… BEEP…
Three unbreakable promises broken.
Now it starts talking to you…
Reminder… Beep… Beep. “It’s time to eat breakfast.” Beep… “It’s time to shower.” Beep… “It’s time to get dressed…”
You curse under your breath and turn off the notification on your screen.
Finally, you think. Out of my life.
But then your cellphone lights up. BEEP, BEEP, BEEP.
Then the voice of Siri comes up… “You have not followed your plan of action. You are in danger of loosing control. Immediately respond. Do not ignore…” WARNING, WARNING!
Like the wily robot on Lost in Space, the Voice of Siri commands action.
She will not be denied!
WARNING, WARNING… YOU MUST COMPLY!!
You pick up your lousy phone, pull the battery out, and throw it on the desk.
But then, with all the commotion, your spouse walks in the room… “Are you going to work, or just sit around in your pajamas all day?”
You rise from your desk and turn silently to the door. Enough of this nonsense, you think. You walk slowly. Then the unthinkable happens, the iPad on the charging system comes to life with a planner beep, your dog comes into the room with a cereal box in its mouth, and your son walks in with a question… “Are you late for work, daddy?”
If this is you, you are being ruled by your planner.
There is only one escape….
You need to find a more flexible solution…
Here’s one you can download for free…
It’s simple to setup, doesn’t beep at you, and gives you control of your day.
However, if this gives you too much flexibility and doesn’t hound you enough, you can always load up this popular solution…
But be warned…
