Want your question answered? Ask it last.

My friend Ben Yoskovitz laments a common problem we all have faced dealing with folks via e-mail…not getting a critical question answered:
And that’s frustrating. You can’t keep asking the same question over and over, and presumably you’re asking the question because you really want an answer.

Tip: The last question you ask in an email is […]

Doodle your way to a meeting time

No I don’t mean drawing goofy things on a piece of paper. I mean using the site/service Doodle to help you plan a meeting:

So, lately, I’ve found myself informally assuming this role, driving a surprising number of gone-fallow projects just by using Doodle to propose a simple check-in. The bottom line is that this […]

What is it with me and Vista or How I learned how to do a nearly painless clean install

Part of the revamp of my home office was the APC laptop stand. This spiffy device also sports a nice 4 port USB 2.0 hub in the back. Great. Awesome, keep the cable clutter under control. Yeah, well not so much.
See starting late last week my laptop started having trouble. […]

Scrapblog: a cool new tool that inspires something more

 My friend Shel Israel pinged me and a bunch of other bloggers about his client Scrapblog and how they were ready to take the wraps off their creation.
I finally got around to checking it out and it is cool.  Basically it is an easy way to create a single page scrapbook page that can be posted on […]

Medical Technology - For the Patient

These last few months, I’ve spent a fair amount of time in medical facilities, mostly working preventive things (nothing scary here; not to worry). There’s been a big change in practice where I go and see my doctor: a whole lot of technology has been added to the workplace.

Let this be a reminder, check ALL the cables when something isn’t working

Got this from Chris Pirillo today:

Oh I have so been there.  I’ve done it myself, I’ve seen tons of other people do it.  Sometimes the cable looks like it’s in, but just isn’t seated all the way.  So, take it from Chris and I, check all the cables.  Then check them again.
Technorati tags: Chris Pirillo, […]

Stuck creating a document? Try using a template

So you need to create a new document.  It doesn’t matter if you’re using Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint (or even OpenOffice), looking at a blank screen is almost as daunting as getting the document done.
Now, when you make this a complex task, like a form letter or invoice, you can waste a lot of […]

Pimp your proposals with Ben’s advice

Our very own Ben Yoskovitz started a sensation yesterday with his post Top 10 Reasons Proposals Fail on his Instigator blog.  It made the front page of Digg (causing his servers to crash not once, but twice) and has now been featured on LifeHacker.
If you’re in a business where your proposals make or break your bottom […]
