I use Contacts app as a contact book of people I both know and people I am interested in.
I use this workflow to quickly search through all my contacts. I add tags (i.e. the name of event we met at or person's skills/interests) to make both the searching and remembering who the person is or what he/she does easier.
[ to contacts that are of greater importance. And
[[ for top/favorite. I also add
del at end of the name for contacts I know are temporary. I then cleanup these contacts when they are no longer needed. i.e. You need to add person to Contacts just to send someone a WhatsApp message. Or agency contact for a place I rent.
I add memorable notes for certain contacts too. In future I want Contacts to be something that's handled by LA as it can do an even better job and export details into Contacts.app too.
- It's a common mistake for founders to hire or give stock to someone for access to their Rolodex of powerful contacts. The value of such lists is always exaggerated. And if you build something great, the powerful will seek you out anyway; that's how they got to be powerful. If you build something great, a network of contacts will naturally grow out of it. And if you don't, no network can save you anyway.
