Generations X and Y tend to use standard goal setting and priority-based systems of personal organization, which are tried and true. However, a new trend towards “Getting Things Done” has led to a more flexible bottom-up approach (vs. top-down), along with the development of a concept called the peripheral brain.
One of the best types of peripheral brains out there (besides good old pen and paper) are online task-management and reminder systems like the popular “Remember The Milk” web application.
We can all encourage good contact lens adherence by recommending solutions that integrate conveniently with our patient’s current systems of personal organization.
