I’ll begin today with one product perfectly designed for drive-bys: the Moleskine memo file. This product is a compact and elegant design to hold cards, documents and notes. The file size is easy to carry in a jacket, briefcase or handbag. Made of six cardboard and cloth pockets, it holds business cards, notes, and (my favorite) 3×5 inch cards. A built-in elastic band keeps it neatly closed. When someone in the hall asks you to send them the report you mentioned, just remove a blank 3×5 card you keep stashed in the wallet and hand it to them, asking them to please write down what it is that they’d like.
Elegant, professional, effective. What more?
