I really have zero idea what I would do if I lost access to my Hotmail.com sign in that I use diligently all day long. I use that account to keep myself organized and keep my life on track. I struggled with staying on track all my life until the Internet came along as well as a host of different sites that I can use online that help me change my life forever. I have a better home life and work life as a result. Prior to the Internet struggled every day to remember and do things that I needed to do.
Some people just use their email to keep in touch with people they know or hear about the latest sale from a company mailing list that they are subscribed to. I do those things, but I also use my email for so much more. Many companies give you the ability to use an online calendar that is accessible to you anytime that you log in. I use that to stay abreast of meetings and general to-do thing that I need to be aware of every day, or even ever hour,too.
One of the other things that I do is to email myself important things that I need to remember. Some people just use a bookmarks program in their browser that they use to surf online, but bookmarks have never been something that jive well with the way my brain works. Instead, I go into my Hotmail account, make a variety of folders that are named in a way that I can remember what is in each folder easily, and then email myself information that I file away in the different folders. I guess it’s just the design of the website that works well with my brain. I can name the title what I want it to, and I can do searches to pull up past files that I’ve sent myself very quickly.
