5 STEPS / 5 MINUTES
Okay, when it comes to maintaining our computers, we're all pretty much the same. We can usually find something more important to do! But...there is a way to get this necessary stuff done without it being such a big hassle and without it taking so much of our otherwise valuable time. We call it the "5 Steps or 5 Minutes Rule"
The rule states: if it can be done in 5 steps, if it can be done in 5 minutes, or if it can be done in a combination of these, we will do it. Think about this...it is true!
Try to look at those tasks you know you need to perform and develop a way that they can each be done in compliance with the above rule. We have a file back up routine for example, that we use and which only takes 5 steps to accomplish.
And, let us know your ideas! We will be posting more of these over time!
