Help! How do YOU Manage Your “Go-To Guy” List

Help! How do YOU Manage Your “Go-To Guy” List

People have unique skills and talents, and over the course of your days, you meet new people and connect to begin new relationships all the time. This means you also expand the very nature of your pool of people to consider asking for help from should a problem arise.

For instance, I met some new friends who have a great piece of software, but no marketing or sales experience. I immediately sifted through recent contacts and found a few people (both people I met at Lifehack.org) to ask whether their expertise matched these people's needs.

In essence, I reached out to my small network of “go to guys” for help.

But as the list of contacts I make is growing, I find myself wanting to keep a simple, flexible database. Something that captures the contact information, maybe tags their skills, and keeps the communications log I mentioned yesterday.

How are YOU managing your list? How do you keep it clear in your head who might be helpful to different problems and opportunities that arise?

Share your personal methods with the other Lifehack.org readers.

The Lifehack Show: How Exercise Slows Aging with Judy Foreman

In this episode of the Lifehack Show, we'll be talking with Judy Foreman about the major impact exercise has on aging, both physically and mentally.

Judy is a nationally syndicated health columnist who has won more than 50 journalism awards. She received a Master’s degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and was a Fellow in Medical Ethics at Harvard Medical School. Judy is also author of A Nation in Pain: Healing our Biggest Health Problem and The Global Pain Crisis: What Everyone Needs to Know.

Her newest book Exercise is Medicine: How Physical Activity Boosts Health and Slows Aging debunks some common myths about aging and shows that it is possible to reverse the effects we often think of as inevitable.
