Maintaining contact information about the many people we meet in our daily lives is very important. In this world today, we interact with a great number of people. Our family and friends are just a few of the people we speak with regularly. We can easily create lists of these people in a personal address book. In addition to writing down the contact information, such as the name, the address, the telephone number, and the email address, adding birth dates, and other information, such their favorite color or hobbies can be useful.
Then when we get a job and we get business associates. We gather their contact information. Adding additional facts, such as the names of other people in their family can help you remember these details. We want to network, and keeping an up-to-date list is useful.
Also, in our daily lives, we come upon a variety of other contacts, such as the hair dresser, the landscaper, the pizza delivery, and that contact information is listed in our address book as well.
The key to maintaining a useful address book is to regularly remove outdated contact information. When we use a physical address book, we sometimes run into difficulty. When one of our contacts moves, we cross out old information, and write in the new information. Some move often enough that the page becomes very messy, and sometimes we run out of space. It may be helpful to use an electronic address book to organize this information. Changes are much easier to make on them.
An electronic address book still requires the user to go through it from time to time to verify that the contact information is current. You may want to use a telephone directory to locate new addresses.
An up-to-date address book is the key to keeping in touch with the many people we encounter every day.
