If you don’t know by now, I’m sort of a personal efficiency maven. I don’t like to waste keystrokes, I’m always experimenting with different key bindings and shortcuts, and I feel almost personally offended when I see someone reach for their mouse to click a button that I know has a keyboard equivalent.
But this isn’t about my pet peeves; this is about tuning yourself in to the improvements you can make on a daily basis that will increase your lifetime efficiency dramatically.
I had the opportunity to give a “lightning talk” at the Boston PHP meetup, so I spoke on this topic. It went OK, so I gave it again at Wayfair and I let them record it. The recording quality is not the best, but I think the point comes across just fine.
The talk is called “Escaping the Tar Pit: Principles of Continuous Improvement.” Video and full slides after the break.
