When balancing work and cancer, there’s a lot of information and thoughts you need to keep track of — a task that can be especially difficult when dealing with treatment side effects such as chemo brain.
We recommend keeping one notebook to record information and to-dos for both work and your personal life (including doctors appointments) — and taking it with you wherever you go. That way, you won’t have to worry about not having the correct notes with you at different meetings or appointments.
However, sometimes just trying to keep the notebook itself organized can be a challenge. A recent article from The Muse recommends using the “bullet journal” system. It’s easy to understand and all it requires is a simple notebook and pen.
