Build the Business of Your Dreams
By Brett Kelly, on Tuesday, January 30th, 2007
I spend a whole lot of time in front of a computer. It was (and still is) my hobby, and subsequently became my profession. And being a GTDer, I’m constantly looking for ways to streamline my computing processes. After about 7 years of full-time computer use, I’ve discovered one of the greatest productivity killers in computing history: the mouse. That’s why I’ve introduced a new snazzy post category called “No Mouse Required”. Constantly moving your hands on and off the keyboard wastes all sorts of time, so I’m determined to eradicate (to the extent it’s possible) my personal use of the mouse. So, anytime you see a post under that moniker, you’ll know there’s a nugget of mouse-less bliss awaiting you.
For the inaugural post, I thought I’d cover something that many, many folks can do faster: send an email using Microsoft Outlook. This may not be news to most of you, but I’m fairly certain somebody will find this tidbit useful. (Note that this post assumes you’re running some flavor of Microsoft Windows).
To send an email without ever taking your hands off of the keyboard, follow these simple steps:
Pretty simple, right? This process is a little weird at first (especially if you want to attach files, etc. – use Alt+I, F to do that), but once you’ve done it a few times, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it!
