How many computer monitors do you use?

Back in the dark ages, I only used one. One for making my way across the Oregon Trail, playing Solitaire, and dialing up to AOL. One monitor was all I knew. It’s what we all knew. But once you know better, you do better. So once I started my business and the technology became available to have two monitors working as one, I hopped on that bandwagon as fast as Michael Phelps swims a lap.

Working with two monitors gave me a larger digital workspace and significantly reduced having to minimize and close windows to see what else I was working on. Since I work primarily from my task list, I usually have my calendar and task list open on one screen and the task or project I’m working on open on the other screen. This system supports my workflow and ability to stay focused on my tasks and goals for the day. Now, I cannot imagine ever working without two monitors. In short, that one tech upgrade greatly increased my efficiency and effectiveness, and improved my workflow.

The statistics on using multiple screens mirror my results:

  • 6% Quicker At Getting On With The Job
  • 7% Faster At Doing Work
  • 10% More ‘Productive’
  • 33% Fewer Errors

Would working from two monitors, three monitors, or perhaps even one giant monitor greatly increase your efficiency and effectiveness, and improve your workflow? Quite possibly.

In this age of ever-changing technology, there are many tweaks you can make to the technology you’re currently using that could be game-changers for your efficiency, effectiveness, and workflow. Many tech upgrades are affordable or even free! So stop using outdated tech and start implementing the tech upgrades that will have the biggest positive or immediate impact in your business!

In this episode of the Small Business Straight Talk Podcast, I dive into eight simple upgrades to the technology you use in your business every day that can help you maximize your efficiency.
