Keeping Everything In Place With Your Home Business

Apr 30, 2008
If you have a home business or do a lot of work on the computer, then you must be able to find things. A clean computer desktop is like a clean house. It can be a laborious task, but the benefits are huge.

How often do you go to a web page that demands a user name and password to login? Of course your normal user name and password won't work, and you have no clue what it might be. You look around the desk to see if it might magically be available.

You know you must have it written it down somewhere, but you aren't sure where to start looking. You waste 15 minutes or so opening drawers and checking files, but the info. is nowhere to be found. You concede.

You determine that now you have to create a new account at this site because you don't want to call and talk to some customer service rep. from India. Everything goes smoothly until you get that email that says to allow 48 hours for your new account to be verified. The swimming pool outside starts to look like a great place to throw your computer into.

This has happened to myself countless times over the years and I have found a great solution. Like anything, old habits die hard. Now, if you can get into the swing of things just a few days in a row, there is a chance you can form a good habit.

I finally came up with the bright idea to make a word file on my computer. I call it "passwords". I put this file on the bottom left of my desktop screen so I can always find it. It works like a charm.

Now whenever I open an account or have to create a login ID, I cut and paste this information into my "Logins" file. I have several home businesses and this method probably saves me over 40 hours a year. I put all kinds of other information in there too.

Finally, I have a good habit. This will save you more time than you can imagine. I try to keep the login information the same against most peoples advice. It's not the end of the world if someone did get my login information for 90% of these sites anyways.

The website accounts I use most are usually the ones that force a user name on me. How ironic? It's kind of like juggling. You can usually remember some of the logins for the sites you are on a lot, but it's those occasional logins that can really throw you off.

Nonetheless, if you start to do this, I can almost guarantee that your life will become easier on the computer. If you make your living on the computer like I do, then you might consider giving this method a shot.
