4. Routine Reaps Rewards
When it's 7:00 AM, do you have a good feeling of accomplishment? By then I've written an article or two; reviewed and sorted my to-do list and finished the first two or three items on it; deleted the unnecessary emails. Admittedly though very productive, I still haven't 'arisen' but rather sat up and grabbed my laptop.

What are we talking about here?

5. Speed Your Computer
Is your computer running slower than it used to? Here’s a few tips to put the accelerator on:

1. Keep your desktop clean
All those files, photos, folders and programs you keep on your desktop load as part of your computer's boot sequence. This can strain your RAM and slow down the whole process, especially if your computer is a bit on the older side.

You don’t have to remove everything from your desktop, but at this point there isn’t much need to have anything on there. On Macs, you can keep your most-used programs and applications on your dock, and on Windows computers you can pin your favourite programs to your taskbar by right-clicking the program and selecting that option.

2. Clear out temporary files
If your Internet browser is where you go first when you start your computer, why not clear out the temporary files and cookies stored in it. As time passes, your browser will get bogged down with items stored in its cache. Go to your browser's preferences and clear your cache. You'll have to log in again on websites that save your info, but the speed increase is worth the occasional wipe.

3. Run a Mac? Quit unused programs

Hitting the red X on the top left of your window doesn’t mean you’ve exited the program. On a Mac, you can close every window but still be running every program, and turning off your computer doesn’t mean they close either.

If you’re done using your Mac, make sure you quit out of every program you don’t need on start-up before turning it off, otherwise they will automatically load when you boot and bog down your start-up time. You can quit programs by going through the program’s menu in the top left and selecting “Quit Program” or by hitting ⌘-Q.

6. Great Gmail Tip to Share

One of the great features of Outlook is that you can preview your emails in two ways. One is the first 1, 2 or 3 lines of the email. The second is the preview pane which will cut your screen in thirds (viewing your emails vertically or in half viewing thme horizontally). gmail preveiw pane

You can now set an email reading pane up in Gmail too. Go to the Gear, select settings, select LABS. Several items down you'll find the Preview Pane. Select enable. Back in Gmail, you'll see a new little box. Select horizontal or vertical
