How to

How to be a Calendar Genius

Genius KittehSTEP ONE: get a Jott account (you set it up so that when you call an 800 number, whatever you say is transcribed into an email to you or whoever you choose) and a Google account which gives you Google Calendar aka G-Cal which is set up similarly to Outlook.

STEP TWO: Set up your Jott account to go to your G-Cal.

In two steps, you can be driving on your way to write a contract and without writing anything down, Jott yourself (that’s not a cuss word… see STEP ONE) that Jenny (who you just met at a builder’s office) has a birthday Saturday, you’re invited to the party on Sunday at 5pm and you just scheduled an inspection for Monday at 2:30pm, all between switching lanes- it all gets put on your calendar without pens, date books or even much thought. HOORAY, YOU’RE A CALENDAR GENIUS!

Lani is the COO and News Director at The American Genius, has co-authored a book, co-founded BASHH, Austin Digital Jobs, Remote Digital Jobs, and is a seasoned business writer and editorialist with a penchant for the irreverent.

    I’m horribly unorganized with dates… never heard of Jott. Sweet.
