THE COACH GOES PECK, PECK, PECK
The first time I was aware people where using hand held as a calendar was some time ago. I was sitting in on a conference about Mr. M. His son was a good looking guy who didn't sit up in the chair, more like lounged in it with a thing in his hand and pecking away at it with a lead less pencil sort of thing. He said, "Oh, I see" when the nurse would talk to him and peck some more. This was before text messaging. He was taking notes. When he came back in three months, he would refer to the last conference by pecking at the thing in his hand, saying things like, "Is this resolved?"
I bought one of those things Mr. M used, I thought I could make use of it at work. I went back to my spreadsheet work sheet. It was quicker to read and put in yet another paper like book.
It is a long way from a note book or an organizer, isn't it? But so far behind what is now available to us. It is not your grandmother's blackberry(ies)!
My question to you is: Do you have a calendar hanging on the wall? Or do you keep all your data on a phone like unit? I wonder if my phone has a calendar? I wonder where my phone is? Yes, it does have a calendar and you can put in events!!!
But then, I can also put it on a virtual sticky on my computer screen!
