Chasing the Waves

iPhone 2014 January 1

Just a little visual reminder  of the Most Important Things To Focus on a Daily Basis.

  • iMessages (instant communication with a phone number or email address)
  • Agenda 3 (time management and instant on-the-moment scheduling for meetings)
  • Simplenote (write it down quickly without waiting for the app to load or messy keyboard)
