8 ways professional computer users lose time every day

As we have discussed before, time adds up quickly.  Here are the 8 ways professional computer users lose time every day:

  1. Losing clipboard clips, only to have to retrieve them again.
  2. Searching sites or local folders for often-used content.
  3. Frequently re-type things already typed before.
  4. Manually repeat a sequence of keystrokes many times over.
  5. Skim long emails, miss something, and lose time as a result.
  6. Skip long posts or articles that could actually help you.
  7. Go to the browser to get something, only to get busy by a less important task or an outright distraction.
  8. Waiting on the browser to load pages.

How many of these can you relate to?  It is the purpose of the Time Saver’s Blog and the Time Saver’s Toolbox to help you to mitigate these inefficiencies and to save you time.

It is our goal to help you develop time-saving workflow habits to help you be effective and efficient every day.

About the Time Saver’s Toolbox

This site is for everyday professionals and entrepreneurs who want to maximize their daily efforts.  To save more of their time, a non-renewable resource, to use elsewhere in their life.

My name is Tom I am a serial entrepreneur, a dad, a husband, a peace hippie and a lover of cosmic spiritual truths. 

In my day job, I research and develop software for in-house projects and customers. 

Each week, I spend multiple hours researching and educating myself on what is out there, what other people are working on, and what amazing new tools have become available.

On this site, I will share my best findings with you, mostly centered around tools and ideas, to save us time.
