Solution 1

A combination of electronic to remind me, and designing software for easy understanding.
 
Doing the documentation as you go along helps as well.
 
But the main thing is to do the job properly in the first place - then it is pretty obvious how it all works, and it reminds you of what you have done so far. XML Commenting, and //TODO notes help in VS because the first is picked up by intellisense so I don't have to remember the parameters, and the latter come up in the TODO pane.

Solution 2

Organize your work!
  • have a paper notebok and an electronic agenda (notebook as "lab-journal"/for scribbles/meeting minutes/..., the agenda for dates/reminders)
  • as first action of every day: write down what you want to achieve by the evening (and keep track)
  • priorize unsolicited interrupts (now, later, never)
  • add notes in your code (//TODO...) and keep track
Going further:
  • read your email/facebook/twitter/... only once a day, e.g. in the evening before leaving
  • stay focussed
Depending on your life style and where you live:
  • reduce/stop inhaling/drinking/... legal/illegal drugs Wink | ;-)
  • sleep and drink enough (oh well, that's my sinn Wink | ;-) )
  • ...
 
I don't say that I do all for that in a strict sense Wink | ;-) - sometimes I also fall back into bad habits Frown | :-(
But in general, they are useful tools for me...
 
BTW: you might ask why *paper* notebook? I have tried out many other (electronic) tools. The outcome is that you are less effective with electronic tools in real life: you don't have always your tablet PC/slate/iPad/... with you, scribbling on a display is still too distracting/little intuitive, you get papers/business cards that you can simply "fold" into your notebook (and later firmly attach if really necessary), others can write scribbles into your book as part of pair discussions/design/sketching/... Once it's full, I archive them (pile them up) with all papers in it.
Sounds anachronistic, I know, but its the tool I came back to again without regret.
 
Cheers

PS: Never ever copy anything from the notebook to the PC - that's complete waste of time (except for reminders).
 
PPS: To quickly see while browsing through your notebook what is scribble and what is to-do: have for each to-do a circle drawn in front of the to-do - with a textmarker highlight the perimeter of the circle if the to-do is open - fill out the circle with the textmarker, once the to-do is closed.
