Sometimes Sharif, my business partner in Cloudberry (the computer business), drives me mad with his time-wasting, and his charging off after every bright new idea. And every now and then, he has a real moment of genius – pointing out something that’s obvious to him, but passes by the rest of us mere mortals.
This week was one of those moments. Sharif was raving about the latest promotion line he’d found: a 24in monitor – and he showed me the. web-page he’d created for it, and the e-mail he was going to send. It wasn’t the monitor itself that made me sit up and take notice (well … it did, I’ve now got one on order), it was the reason Sharif gave for why every entrepreneur should have one – good time management!!
I’ll let Sharif’s words from the e-mail explain:
“I have a 24” monitor, and I don’t think I could go back. I also don’t think I would go back to two smaller screens either. I used to think managing two screens independently would be better because you could maximize one app to each, but having a 24” screen has really eliminated my need to desire to maximize anyway.”
The increase in productivity is brilliant and also (when everyone has left the office) I can watch movies on the laptop screen while catching up with my emails on the other one.
We have just received a very special offer on the brand new, just released Viewsonic 24″ low energy high contrast screens which is very good.
I estimate this has got to be worth about 20 mins a day at least!

So, while I generally focus on the softer stuff, around motivations and core aspirations, sometimes a bit of technological help can go a long way in staying focused and making the most of your best opportunities!
