comment How to organize life? A bunch of specific details
Carry around a few index cards held together with a binder clip, and a writing instrument. When something occurs to you, write it down. That way you have a record, and when you get a handle on a larger system, you can funnel those captured ideas through it to decide if/when/how you want to act on them.

You're welcome. :) Sometimes I miss really badly by answering the question I think needs an answer, rather than the one they actually ask, but I'm glad I didn't in this case.

comment Reminder services: do they exist?
@JanDoggen good point, and I edited my answer. But it's not necessarily bad if the accountability partner is proactive, either. I've seen that work, too.

comment Writing on paper first then digitise to PC
It gets down to how much your creative process depends on putting actual pen to actual paper. My wife (who writes novels, among the other things she does extremely well) does part of her thinking in paper journals, and she's convinced it makes a difference in that part of her creative process. For that situation, a tool that's pen and paper at its core would be a shorter bridge to cross. But, if you're ambivalent toward pen and paper, then it matters less what form the tool is in.
