Whilst reading the article by Drs Paton and Al-Ubaydli (February 2006 JRSM1) on the task list, I was reminded of an earlier piece of invaluable technology that I used when I was a house officer. The technology, known as a piece of paper, allowed, with the use of an additional item known as a pen, me to keep notes and task lists on all my patients as I dutifully trotted behind my consultant. If large enough, it also provided a convenient place to stick those handy patient information labels—freeing up my sleeve for wiping my nose. Purging was simply a matter of crossing off tasks as they were completed and shredding the paper at the end of the day.
I do hope that Drs Patton and Al-Ubaydli will forgive my slightly facetious response when I admit to occasionally using the `reminder' function on my mobile phone to assist my own personal organizational skills.
