Happy New Year to All.
As we toast in 2019, many of us are thinking of New Year Resolutions: Eat healthier |Exercise more |Dry January | Lose Weight….and so on.
Maybe we should do Tech Resolutions!
What’s a Tech Resolution I hear you ask. Well, they are simply tech-orientated habits that we either need to break or adopt.
Here at Tek Doctor, we’ve compiled a list of such Tech Resolutions you might considering following (In no particular order):
Detox your email inbox
How much time do you spend swiping away junk mail on your phone or computer? Probably more time than you expect.
Spending as little as a minute a day, you can unsubscribe from 5 unwanted mailing lists and in no time at all, your inbox will be clear as a bell, only receiving emails that you really want.
Be Nicer Online
The internet can be a toxic place at times. Full of trolls at the very least. Ask yourself “Am I part of the problem?” If you have a difference of opinion from a blogger, author, journo or fellow contributor, just let it go. They shouldn’t be subjected to attacks from behind the tech curtain as it were.
If you do need to reply, think before you type and put yourself in their position and think about how you’d feel being on the receiving end of what you had typed.
Save Paper and Ink
This is a fairly easy one but, always worth considering. Maybe ask yourself “Do I really need a hard copy, or can I just save as a PDF?” If you decide that it is essential to have a hard copy, then consider 2-sided printing or better yet, you can print 2 pages book-style onto one side of a piece of paper…ergo, use only one piece of paper to print 4 pages.
