I recently wrote about learning to be a great dad.
Part of that is evaluating various tools for use in a family setting. I figured this Community post might be a great place to kick around some tech, family-style.
The first one I'll put up for consideration is from Leo of ZenHabits, where he writes:
"The One Calendar that Unites them All. My wife and I used to have separate calendars, along with multiple school calendars, sports schedules, notices for school, and more. The side of our fridge was covered with these schedules, and it was a challenge to remember everything. Enter: Google Calendar. Now, we enter everything in one calendar. We do have separate sub-calendars for my work, my personal stuff, my wife’s stuff, the kids, and my training, but it’s all viewable on one calendar. Now, whenever we get a school calendar or sports schedule or notice for something at school, we quickly enter it into Gcal. Same thing with work appointments, meetings, classes, 5Ks and more. Now we can just look at the calendar, from work or home, and see what’s going on that day, or the next day."
Are there any other tools your family uses successfully to stay organized?
