August 2015 Goals

My goals for August 2015:

August 2015 Goals

1.) I’m still in list building mode.
That’s primary focus.

2.) I want to learn to type faster. 
I’m in a computer for most of the day, do a LOT of writing, and a LOT of email.  The fact I can only type 60 or 70 words per minute is pretty lame considering typing is what I do alllll day long.

A 10% – 30% increase in my typing speed can have huge impacts on my productivity.  So this seems like an important thing to learn.

The problem is I “Chicken Peck” with my index fingers:

Chicken Pecking Typing

That’s right.  EVERY SINGLE LETTER I TYPE IS WITH MY TWO INDEX FINGERS.

I can type reasonably fast, and without looking at the keyboard, but I’ve got my two index fingers running around the keyboard all day whilst my other fingers just chill.

That’s a waste.

This month I’m taking about 10 minutes per day to train myself to type with all my fingers.
