I recently got a tetanus booster shot. Boosters are required every 10 years, so I’d like someplace to track this that will bring it back to my attention in 2030. Problem is, 10 years is an awfully long time compared to the life-cycle of most apps. I’m not someone who flits from one task manager to another, but I figure there’s a good chance I might make a change in the course of a decade.
Paper is more permanent, obviously. The problem there is putting it somewhere that it will come to my attention 10 years from now. I will be honest and say I don’t have a system that’s anywhere near robust enough to trust over that time period.
I’m using vaccinations as an example here, but there are other similarly long-term tasks out there as well, like renewing a passport and taking a trip to see the 2024 solar eclipse. For now, I’ve got these in my regular task manager and I’m trusting myself to make sure they migrate over if I ever switch systems, but I don’t know if this is an entirely satisfactory solution.
Any great ideas?
