Technology will never get you organized

Today, I came to the sad realization that all the technology in the world is not going to make me a more organized person. It started with me paying almost $600 for a palm pilot back in 2002. It worked great for me in the first 3 weeks but then I started to leave it at home when the novelty wore off and I quickly reverted to the old habbits of scribbling notes on paper and then pulling my hair out when I couldn't find them. I bought a smart phone years later with the though that I always carry my phone and so I would always have my organizer thus I would be organized....

After countless thousands in smartphones, handhelds, tablet pcs, palm pilots, handspring, windows mobile and hundreds in software to keep this all synchronizeds and talking with my laptop, outlook and online calendar.......and you know what? I'm back where I started, still scribbling notes with pen and paper.

If you were never really an organized person before, all the technology in the world will never get you there, sure didn't work for me, and I'm one of the people that needs it.
