033 Everyday Carry, Productivity Edition – ProductivityCast

We get up every day, and we walk out of the house with the tools we need to get through the day. Do you stop and think about what it is that you carry, and why? Are there things that could help you? Are you carrying items that you don’t need? In this episode of ProductivityCast, the team discusses their everyday carry for personal productivity.

productivity cast Episode 33. I'm Ray Sidney-Smith and I'm joined here today with Augusto Pinaud, Francis Wade and Art Gelwicks, we are going to do something, I think rather interesting today, something that has become sort of an internet sensation. In a way, it's the idea of what's called an everyday carry. And we're putting a little bit of a twist on it today. But I wanted to explain a little bit what the everyday carry is. And I think art might be able to explain this a little better than me. So I'm going to try and then I'm going to turn it over to you art and you can give a little more. And then what we're going to do is actually talk about it from a productivity perspective. So the everyday carry in my understanding is basically the things that you carry on your person, or maybe carrying a laptop bag and or suitcase, a briefcase or something like that backpack to work and what those things are that you carry every day. And, you know, just to sort of get through the day. And obviously, that can include a wallet and keys and those kinds of things. But more from our perspective, what's going to help you be more productive art to like, catch the essence of it? Can you explain a little bit more sincere, much more

Art Gelwicks 1:23
familiar with this than I am? Yeah, the I basically live out of my backpack. So my everyday carry is on my back. But if you think about it, as it's the stuff in your pockets, it's the stuff within immediate perimeter to you that you really wouldn't leave the house without, you feel unprepared.
