It is astounding how little we actually know about our computers. We know how to email and use basic software, but many of the more intricate details elude us. This is a shame for productivity in the workplace because if utilized effectively, a computer can save you hours of time that can be spent working instead. Consider the following computer tools.

Templates

We send hundreds of emails every month, yet tend to write each one out in full. Emails need to be personalized, but when you are sending the same message to a number of people, it is a waste of time to write each out in full before sending. Set up a template message, that will only require you to add names; the time that you save typing emails can be better spent on other tasks.

Filters

We sign up to a lot of websites, which then send us a lot of emails. Our productivity in the workplace is continually disrupted by our checking emails, expecting there to be an important message, but many turn out being an offer of some type. Set up filters that will send emails to different folders, depending on their content. This will enable you to see whether you have an email that needs reading, or one that can wait until later.

Macros

Macros are incredibly useful, yet incredibly underused. Macros are actions that can be used to automate tasks that you do regularly in certain programs. Rather than going through the same laborious procedures every day, with the press of a few keys they are done in a matter of moments.

Save time by learning to use your computer to its full potential and your productivity in the workplace will grow.

Give Credit Where Credit Is Due

When life is going well, it can be tempting to “toot your own horn.” You can be proud of your accomplishments, but don’t forget about the people who have helped you along the way, and those who continue to help you now.

No matter how hard you’ve worked to get where you are today, you can’t do it alone. There are always helping hands along the way, and people who have given you resources, worked alongside you, or just offered moral support when it was needed.

To those who have assisted you in one way or another, don’t forget to say thanks. Give credit where credit is due. You would likely not appreciate being overlooked after doing someone else a favor or working hard on a project, so you owe it to others to let them know they are appreciated.

Never forget about the help you’ve been given. It is through a great number of experiences that you have become who you are. You may depend a great deal on others or consider yourself to be very independent. Either way, you haven’t lived life completely alone, and it’s a good idea to recognize that.
