I just found what for me anyway a major boost in how I look at my calendar.
I know that GCal has the ability to assign colors to appointments but I never really thought about using it until the Android app was updated the other day and there was the push that appointments could have colors assigned to them.
I started playing with it this morning by setting all my appointments for the month of June with various colors, it creates a much more visual presentation of what I have and when.
I'm a youth sports official and set up all my games on my calendar, instead of having a series of nondescript boxes I now green for baseball, yellow for softball, orange for basketball and grey for soccer. I can look at everything in quick view and know what I have coming up and then focus on the actual locations.
I am also a volunteer firefighter so I have all those meetings, trainings and calls in red, again I can just look over the calendar and see what things are upcoming or in the past when I review my activities.
I just thought this system was cool, maybe others will take something from it.
