Carrying your laptop with the right stuff installed is not enough.
Not only software, carrying your own hardware and peripherals will save you hours one day:
Here are the things you should also physically carry:
|Figure: St. Bernards are known for rescuing lost mountaineers, bringing life saving provisions
- Business cards
- A network cable (optional)
- An extension cord (optional)
- A thumb drive on your key ring (a personal choice, but 16 GB is a good choice)
- An external hard drive (a personal choice, but 750 GB if a good choice if you have lots of 10+ GB VMs)
- Software DVD's (generally you can keep the .ISOs of MS Office and Visual Studio D:\DataSetup\ISOs\)
- Current brochures - Hand them out to interested clients
- User story cards - These help Product owners create user stories
- Evaluation forms - Ask for feedback if you did a presentation
- Even a text book or two
We have one guy in our office who carries two bags, each weighing about 10 kgs. He is the SSW St. Bernard! *
If you need to quickly share something with your mate:
* One of our mean guys put a house brick in the bottom a bag to see if he noticed it. He carried it for 2 weeks. It was very funny.
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
