My Google Calendar Setup
I like to have all my calendars and events in one place. This includes Facebook events, friends birthdays and Meetups I'm attending. Here is how I break down my calendars in Google.
My personal calendar for things such as doctors, catching up with friends or anything like that.
Used for recurring events such as work payroll or recurring bills that I have. I don't use my calendar as a task manager - it's more for just reminders of where certain bills fall on a recurring basis.
All work related meetings/events.
