Should I take notes on my computer or on paper?

I think this must be one of the key questions facing workers right now.  Silly you think?  Okay, you go into a meeting, you know that information is going to be shared that you need to remember or you are going to be given a task (or three), so how do you record said information […]

The MySpace Generation and the workforce-adapt or lose

Ah graduation season, new, fresh faces ready to enter the work force.  I’d wager that 100% of them are computer savvy.  E-mail and IM are passe to these grads.  This is the MySpace Generation.  This post is a part of the Biz Channel’s theme day and I want to direct it to both employers and […]

Messy desks? Eh, don’t sweat it

Eric Eggertson took up my challenge for topics and gave me a ton of topic ideas.  Being in a “not do things in order” mood, I’m going to start with #4:
4) Clean desk vs. messy desk. I saw a photo of Al Gore’s messy desk today in my travels. Compare that to some neat freak’s desk, […]

Audience participation time here-what do you want to read about here?

 A blog is a pretty organic thing.  You start it off with one intention or direction (okay sometimes not), and as you write it morphs.  Changes into something else.  Or just takes another content direct.  PimpYourWork is no different.  We’ve gone from four authors (yes initially there were going to be four), to three, to […]

Just get it done, get it done fast, repeat as needed

Have lots to get done? Spinning your wheels? According to Web Worker Daily this is the formula and steps:
1. Keep it together.
2. Don’t stop.
3. Have a plan.
4. Get it going.
5. Push past roadblocks.

Ergonomics are very important to working effectively

How does your body feel after a day at the office? Shoulders tight and sore? How about your neck? Wrists and arms? If you’re like most folks you might be pretty achy and the reason is that your office and desk might not be set up well, ergonomically speaking.
Ergonomics is the science of having things […]

If you’ve ever tried to burn CDs or DVDs-read these tips

How many coasters do you have?  No, I don’t mean those things you buy to protect your coffee table, I mean CDs or DVDs that didn’t burn right so they are useless (essentially becoming coasters).
I have tons.  In fact I keep finding them as I pack to move.  Bad CDs and DVDs, btw, aren’t recyclable […]

Some laptop tips for Vista users (okay and others too)

Since I was not only on the road a lot last week, I was at a conference where access to outlets can be tricky, I’ve got some spiffy new tricks for you.
First trick is for Vista users only (sorry).  Hit windows-x (that’s the funky key with the windows logo on it … alone it opens […]

No, I didn’t fall off the face of the Earth

Last week I was busy live blogging the Web 2.0 Expo for the Blog World Expo.  Oh don’t worry, I’ve got major coolness for you from the conference.
Just give me a minute … I’ll get the first couple up soon.
