DIGITAL SPRING CLEANING
EVEN IN TIMES LIKE THESE WE WOULD LIKE TO INSPIRE YOU; FROM HOME OFFICE TO HOME OFFICE, SO TO SPEAK. TODAY ON THE SUBJECT OF DIGITAL MINIMALISM.
It's time for the digital spring cleaning. While we have learned from Marie Kondo how to limit our household to objects that give us pleasure, we should take on the digital world. At the moment we all spend a lot of time in front of our big and small screens. Our use of media shoots through the ceiling. We fight our way through floods of e-mails, we laboriously rummage through files stored on our desktops or try to remember a password.
- The problem zone of most, cleaning up the desktop. Here the following applies: Delete duplicates, archive completed projects and label them cleanly.
- We all have THE one password. The one that we have been using for ages and that we have always adapted over the years. It's time to update passwords and finally use a password manager or, on Mac, the keychain.
- Stop the flood of mail in the mailbox. Which newsletter is relevant? What can I cancel? Keep pending mails in your mailbox, either delete the rest or store them in subfolders.
- Finally, delete the apps on your smartphone that you are not using. Do we really need another photo filter app? Organize and control the rest thematically and check notifications.
- Update the software and finally create the computer back-up.
- More order leads to more time. Use it for online socializing and enjoy a virtual aperitif with your employees!
- It also helps to set usage limits. This allows us to control how much time we spend at the screen so that our media usage does not shoot through the ceiling.
