A couple of things:
First, you will get used to it. People said the exact same thing about phone numbers when the self-dialing stuff was introduced. But think about all the phone numbers in your head – probably more than there are passwords in there.
Find a system of self-coding. So like if you like Shakespeare, make your passwords names of plays, with a number thrown in. So my password for HTMF is pretty similar (in my coding system) to my password for themainframe.ca, but there’s no way for someone to see the connection unless they’re me
If you must write down passwords, again use a code. Put them in a shopping list. Instead of writing down “htmf password is panasonic” write down “redforum ahead of our time” or something that will remind you of your password.
Finally, you can always grab a program that keeps your passwords for you. Like this one:
Make them all ****
No one wants your paltry overdraft anyway!
