Fridays are tip days at SimpleProductivity blog.
The holidays are approaching. I gave my husband a very short list. Here are the three things I want, and why:
I am a web programmer by day, writer by night. While I have a good keyboard at home, the majority of my time is spent typing on a less-than-ideal keyboard provided by my employer. Since I spend so much time using the device, I want a good cordless keyboard to use at work. Why cordless? Because I am tired of having various wires tangle across my workspace and snag other devices.
Same as for the keyboard, I want a good mouse that I don’t have to use a cord with. I have wireless mice at home and I love them, but I want a nice one for work as well. The trick here is that it has to be a universal mouse – while I am fully ambidextrous, I prefer to mouse with my left hand. Besides, it gives my co-workers fits when they try to use it.
I am sure that I am not the only person in the world who brews a cup of coffee or tea…and then forgets about it until it’s cold. I want a mug warmer to keep my hot beverages toasty.
You might be thinking to yourself that these are very odd requests, but honestly, these three things will eliminate annoyances in my life. And eliminating annoyances makes my day go smoother, and I get more done.
So I’m going to throw this out to you: what gifts would you ask for that would eliminate annoyances in your life?
