Using templates can save you agony of recreating a cumbersome document over and over again and it can also save you time!
Speaking of timeÖ TIME is something that many people complain they donít have enough of, especially to dedicate to their computer.
I can not stress enough to you to schedule time with yourself to at least D-BUST your computer monthly! Make it a new habit and start working on it now. Pick same time daily, weekly, or monthly to D-BUST. Schedule it, put it in your planner, and on your to-do list. You wonít have to do everything that Iíve been writing about, especially if you take care of things, such as deleting or saving, as you go along.
Make your computer work for you, thatís what itís suppose to do. It was meant to give you more time NOT take up more of your time.
If you are stumbling around a program, take and make time to learn program. If you have to refer to manual or call a friend for help every time you try to use a computer tool, piece of software, or hardware, itís time to take time to get professional help! Hire a high school kid, take a class, hire a tutor, just get help that you need. Use Help feature on your computer to learn what you can about software or program. If thatís not enough, read a book and do exercises. You are losing valuable time if you donít! Remember that time is money!
By taking time to D-BUST and learn how to use your computer to its fullest, your computer and you will be humming along in no time!
