“I can’t remember my password.”
I hear this all of the time from my clients. It can save you a lot of time and energy (and frustration!) by remembering your passwords. I know it can be difficult with the endless number of accounts you have to sign up for – and all with a different variation of password requirements. I have a trick I use, that a fellow co-worker taught me years ago. The little black box…..
Okay, so it really can be any color. The point is an index box with alphabetical tabs. I can’t tell you how many times a day I use this…..it is a lot.
This works perfect for your home office or very small business where there are no password secrets. Now, I wouldn’t recommend keeping your really important passwords in a box like this – NO banking passwords, NO email passwords, NO social media passwords. Just keep those random sign ups that it really difficult to keep up with in there.
Another option, a password log book. Like this one (found on Amazon)…
These little books are perfect for travel, or keeping in a locked drawer in your office.
