The Paper Address Book in the Digital Age

0708-l-13181-coa-adphmnop1Your cell phone probably has a contact directory. Maybe your PDA does as well. All the e-mail addresses you need are stored in your address book. You’re good to go, right?

Unfortunately, that’s simply not the case!

Storing your important contact information in digital format only could be an invitation for disaster. Phones and PDA’s are just one unfortunate accident away from being rendered useless. And by now we’ve all learned the hard way that data stored on a computer is never 100% safe.

Imagine for a moment that you lost access to this digital information. What would you do?

If you keep a hard copy of your most important contacts, you can rest easy knowing that no matter the situation, you’re prepared to get in touch with a moments notice.

Whether you maintain a phone list in your planner, a neatly-organized A-Z phone/address directory, or a file of your most important contacts’ business cards, you can rest assured that even in the event of electronic or mechanical failure, you’ll be able to get in touch with who you need to, when you need to!

  1. How I wish that DayTimer had kept their computer-based planner software!

    However, since the decision to stop producing it has been made, I am still using the computer-based program (Compatibility Tools), I make it a point to print out my address book on a monthly basis.

    I have backup software for the cell phones, which helps, of course, but the paper-based system never fails.
