Francis Wade 0:26I’m Francis Wade. Art Gelwicks 0:27 And I’m Art Gelwicks. Raymond Sidney-Smith 0:26Welcome, gentlemen, and welcome to our listeners today to this episode. Today, what we wanted to do is we wanted to get a little bit non techie with some non digital technology, I suppose. But what we’re going to do today is an episode on non digital productivity gear that we all use in our everyday lives in our in our productivity systems, that help us be more productive, and hopefully will help you be more productive in knowing about them. Even if you don’t use the exact products we use, we you can find the things that we are talking about, and they might help you be more productive. And so what we’re going to do is go around Round Robin, and each of us will describe what the tool is and why we use it and how we use it in our own systems. And that brings me to our first item, I’m going to go with art galax art, what was your first choice of your gear? Art Gelwicks 1:22Well, these aren’t in any particular order. But the first thing I’ll pull out here is my favorite little Dymo, letter tag, portable label maker. I mean, we’ve all seen one of those label makers before with the keyboard on the top, type it in. And it makes that lovely little mechanical sound as it spits the label out the side. Well, I’m just looking around my office right now, I’ve got cabinets labeled, I’ve got folders labeled, I’ve got drawers labeled, it’s amazing how important it is just to know what something is without having to open it and route around in it. And it helps get past that hole out of sight out of mind issue that you can run into so often. So that’s that’s probably my first thing. I don’t know that it’s necessarily the best label maker. There’s tons of them out there. And technically, it’s digital. But to me, it’s very straightforward. And it’s very simple. And it just does the one job that it’s supposed to do. And it does it very well. Raymond Sidney-Smith 2:19So what do you find that you use it the most for?
