First I want to say thanks to everyone who helped and commented.
Here is what I have been doing with my tickler system since I created this thread.
I already had a physical tickler system setup so I was able to start quickly, and put it right beside my computer, where I would see it each day.
And I created an @Tickler Folder on my laptop for any digital files/emails/info
Then to make sure that I remembered any items that I dropped into either tickler system, I started using the Reminders app on my IPhone.
So when I drop something into either my physical tickler system, or digital tickler system I set a reminder and alarm in the Reminders app.
I set most reminders for 7am, or 9pm depending on when that day I want the alert to pop up on my IPhone.
I am finding that this is allowing me to trust my tickler systems, and not worry if there is something forgotten in those folders or not.
I was even considering dumping my digital tickler system into my dropbox folder that way it would sync automatically to my iphone but I think I like it the way it is for now.
Again thanks everyone.
