Try This: Set a Reminder

One of the things Cortana can do for you is to give you reminders. For example, type or say, "Remind me to call Jenny at 2 PM." Make the meeting recurring if you want to. The reminder will appear at 2 PM, along with any info you’ve added to it.

Extra bonus—if you have a Windows phone and are signed in with the same Microsoft account, any reminders you set on your PC will be automatically synced to your phone.
