I’ve spent the past week exploring options for a Sales “Customer Relationship Management” (CRM) system for our company.
Welcome to a world where words don’t mean what you expect. A “Lead” isn’t really a lead, an “Account” isn’t really an account, and so on.

Once again, my maze of cables has reached “critical mass,” increasing my daily stress. I recently bought several new devices, including an Android tablet, a Bluetooth headset, and a new cell phone. Each has its own charging cable, and all the new cables and most of the old ones are black. And three of the devices use the same tiny USB connector, but I’m not 100% certain that it’s OK to use them interchangably.
So I just spent 20 minutes printing out and affixing 16 tiny labels to 8 cables (one on each end of each cable) to identify which cables go with which devices. (The picture at right is not mine; it’s just an example.)
