There was a recent article in a special section of Newsweek (dated March 20th, 2007) that outlined the growing importance of paper in a technology obsessed world. We could not agree more.
It seems that there is a direct relationship between the increase in techno gadgets and the need for paper, although back in the mid-nineties, there were some that argued that we would soon turn into a paperless society.
It is becoming more and more important to carry a paper and pen as it is to have a blackberry, ipod and pda on one's person. Hence, there has been a large increase of different style jotter pads
and pocket memos
with to do lists in the market. After all, they don't run out of batteries right when you are trying to input an extremely important contact's data. Plus, when it rains and the pad gets wet, you can buy a new one and continue with ease. Just make sure not to use the pad as a permanent note taking instrument. Rather, if you use it for notes and then transcribe these notes into your computer or pda later, these jotters will prove to be very useful and in fact indispensable.
Happy Note Taking,
The CLC Team

For those that missed the feature article in our March Newsletter, here's the story:
Last month, ABC News presented a special report about the direct relationship between heavy handbags / briefcases and an increase in back pain. Furthermore, the report argued that as a result of an increase in paper and tech gadgets, Americans are carrying more and more weight in their bags to and from work.
Additionally, our back does not let us feel the weight until it is ready to crack and so we assume that it is ok for us to carry this weight. One of the worst ways to carry a handbag or briefcase, suggests this report, is by the handle.
In order to avoid injury to the back, the report offers a few helpful suggestions. First, we should always try and carry less than 10% of our body weight in our bags and thus lessen the daily load on our backs.
We should also try to distribute the weight of our bags evenly on our bodies by using a shoulder strap and crossing it over one side so that the bag hangs on the opposite side of the strap.
Finally, the report advocates using a wheeled bag or briefcase if the weight of your daily work load is greater than 10% of your body weight.
Prevention is always better than cure and since we only have one back, we should take care of it as best as we can.
