OK, so sometimes I’m slow. I’ve had an excellent Brother label make(the linked one at home, and an older one at work) for a looong time now. I started using one in 2002 when I first drank the Getting Things Done elixir, I believe. And I’ve had a ridiculous number of chargers and power adapters for even longer.
But it just dawned on me that I can actually use my label maker to mark my power adapters so I don’t:
- throw one away because I don’t know what it’s for (yes, I’ve done that);
- unplug the wrong one while crawling around under the desk (yes, I’ve done that);
- accidentally bring the wrong charger with me on a trip (and I’ve done that once, as well).
So from this point forward, one of my resolutions is to label my power adapters when I first acquire them.
Learning the hard way is still learning…
