Tech Corner: Text Selection Tips

News Body:
Need to select multiple words in a word document? Here's a few tips to help:
  • Double-click to select a whole word. This is convenient when you want to replace an entire word with another, delete, or copy it.
  • Triple-click to select a paragraph. A paragraph is denoted by the Enter/Return key. This means that just one line can be a paragraph if Enter/Return was pressed at the end of it. Triple-click to select a paragraph, then choose your next step.
  • Select a line at a time. If you move your cursor to the left of a line of text, over in the margin, it turns into an arrow. Click and hold, then drag up or down to select a line at a time.

Title:
Time Management 101

News Body:
Tired of struggling to find the time to do things? We're all busy people with tons of priorities, and yet, we all wish we had a little more free time. According to Laura Vanderkam, here are a few things to think about:
  • We don't build the lives we want by saving time. We build the lives we want and time saves itself
  • Keep a time journal for every hour you're awake and see how you use/waste time
  • Time is elastic. It will stretch to accommodate what we put in it
  • Ever minute we spend is OUR choice. I don't have the time = it's not a priority to us
  • Write next year's performance or life review today. Write 3-5 things you've accomplished that made it great
  • Put our priorities in our schedule before everything else
  • There are 168 hours in a week after subtracting 40 hours for work and 56 for sleep (assuming you actually get 8 hours a night) you're still left with 72 hours for everything else. That's a lot of time if you think about it.
