You’re Wasting Your Time: Says So Right on the Label

Earlier this month, I blogged (again) about the need to think deeply about what your information management problems actually are before you even think about thinking about applying technology to mitigate those problems – and then, in the hardware store, I found the perfect bit of product labeling to use to illustrate the point!

The label says, “You’re wasting your time! This product is only effective if you read the instructions thoroughly.” Well guess what? The same goes for information management best practices! And so I thought it was worth sharing.

You can see the label and my commentary in the YouTube video here.
