Getting to High-Performance PC User Status

Being a High-Performance User on your PC just means producing more output in a given time period than other people do.   This is the kind of thing that can not only make your day go faster it has both career and financial benefits as well.  If you are an hourly employee, some people believe that since you get paid by the hour there is no real incentive for you to get more work done.  That is totally false.  No matter how you are paid, your boss will certainly know who is getting the real work done.  When it comes time to determine who gets the new job that pays more – you will be in contention.

Okay, how does one become a high-performance PC user?  Well, it is all about productivity.  That simply means getting more done in a day than others get done in two days – those kinds of ratios.  To accomplish this you need to review and improve everything about how your PC is used, how the applications are run and everything else about how your PC supports your job.

Let us start with the application platform.  Review all your applications for the possibility of a custom install instead of using the Standard install which most people do.   Then, review the application in detail and determine if there are enhanced functions that become available to you as a user of the custom-installed version.  Then you should totally review not only the application but everything you use it for to determine if there are things you could do differently that produce the same output quality but accomplish it faster.

Analyze every piece of data you utilize on a regular basis and set up access to it in the most efficient manner.  Many PC users have no organized control over their User IDs and Passwords, as an example.   You should store all of them in a single copy-access file on your Desktop.   

Analyze all your email and financial accounts and system to ensure that you have an auto-login where possible.   Sometimes your company may have policies against this but where possible set up everything possible to launch, load, enter and pass security as rapidly and automatically as possible.

Next, do a review of your backup and restore capabilities.  Securing your data files with tight and automatic backups will save hours – sometimes days – in the event of data loss or a head crash.   Make sure you have a top notch virus protection system.

Lastly, review all the other things that could improve PC performance and speed – defragging, redundancy deletion, etc.  

Make sure, also to keep a neat and tidy system registry to support an efficient and fast-running PC. You can get a good registry software system that does the scan and delete functions automatically.  They also do all the other registry fix functions that accomplish any needed Registry Repair.
