STEP 48: Address list, calendar and writing materials

Don’t leave home without them. Address lists, calendars and writing materials are the networkers’ stock in trade. When you make a new contact, few things are as impressive as coming up with a match and immediately giving the new contact all of the match’s contact information. And now, the wide availability of personal digital assistants (PDAs), such as PalmPilots® and similar devices as well as cellular telephones has made carrying this information both easy and fun.

Carrying your calendar with you allows you to arrange appointments on the spot. You can quickly book lunch or make an appointment with a great new contact and avoid the electronic barriers that can make trying to connect so frustrating.

Stash pens, pencils and pads everywhere. Carry them in your pockets, purses, briefcases, glove compartments, in every room in hour home and office. Always be prepared to capture a name, address or important information.

PDAs and some cellular telephones contain address lists, calendars and memo applications in one small, tidy package. With these devices, you can instantly beam addresses, contact and schedule information to contacts devices. Some also have digital audio recorders that let you record brief information, such as addresses and phone numbers, for later use.
