Greatest Tools #1: Duct Tape Revisited

Greatest Tools #1: Duct Tape Revisited

I believe the merits of duct tape should be shouted from the mountaintops. The longer I live the more uses I find for this invaluable resource.

Here is a list of my favorite few.

  • Securing computer cables.
  • It is great for splicing wires because it is wider and more sturdy than black electrical tape.
  • Emergency luggage patch.
  • Repairing and marking your guitar case.
  • Hide a key under your fender.
  • Emergency hose repair.
  • Holding the batteries in your remote control.
  • Tape an extra desk key under your desk.
  • Remove those long ear hairs the come with middle age (ouch!).

Extra bonus. Add a few years to that favorite book by re-enforcing the ragged binding.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
