Issue #50  (Why We Never Have Enough Time) 01/27/20

I recently came across the Colemak keyboard, which is an alternative to the standard English QWERTY or Dvorak. I honestly can't imagine trying to learn a new keyboard layout. I'm not an extremely fast typer (about 55 WPM) so I guess I can only improve by trying out a new layout. But my brain is so hooked into QWERTY that I shudder to even consider another kind.

But if you're interested in considering something that might be less painful on the hands (if you have that problem), Colemak is touted as "a one-time investment that will allow you to enjoy faster and pain-free typing for the rest of your life." And their FAQ explains that it won't take long to learn.

Now on to this week's hand-picked productivity links!
