We humans work round the clock performing a various number of tasks every day. Sometime or the other we may miss some event or task which we wanted to complete at a specific. Even most of us maintain a to-do list to overcome this problem. But why are we still maintaining a to-do list? Have you ever thought about it. Well, the world is changing rapidly and way of organizing the tasks are also changing day by day.

A number of apps are available to help us manage our time quite efficiently. You don’t need to maintain a to-do list separately as it is difficult to open each time you want to view the event. Let’s make it much simpler by using Google Calendar to remind you your events as per the schedule. You can create Reminders in Google Calendar to keep track of your to-dos alongside your scheduled events.
