Occasionally, I can be a little bit scatter-brained and forget to do something important. This was majorly the case the last time that I went boating; I completely forgot to put sunscreen on and I wound up with one of the worst burns I’ve ever had in my entire life. Ever since I did that, I’ve made a vow to make lists before I do things like this to ensure that I don’t forget anything important.
For instance, I’m planning a boating trip in a few days and so I generated a list of all of the things I need to do before I can make that happen. Obviously, I’ve got to remember sunscreen for the day I go out on the boat. I also have to remember to get some Evinrude XD 50 oil so that I can perform the proper maintenance beforehand.
