If you’re like most people, you never have enough time during the day to get everything accomplished. In fact, if you work in an office and have responsibilities at home as well, you’re probably always running behind. There’s a simple solution to this time management problem, and it’s the ability to touch type. Just think of the amount of time you waste if you have a job that requires you to sit all day and type reports, business letters, and other correspondence and you can’t touch type! Not being able to touch type can also adversely affect students who need to turn in type-written homework assignments by a certain deadline.
In fact, no matter your profession, lacking this one specific skill can translate into a significant waste of time every single day. This is true for every person who has not developed touch typing skills.
Here’s something else that further compounds the amount of time lost. During all the time you spend focused on the keyboard while typing, you aren’t able to look at your computer monitor (or piece of paper if you’re actually typing on a typewriter!) to see what you’ve typed.
If you don’t look at the screen to see what you’ve typed, you have no way of knowing the accuracy of what you’ve typed until you stop typing and check. If you’ve made errors, which you undoubtedly have, you will need to go back and correct those errors. This may take just a few minutes, but again, those few minutes all get added into your pool of wasted time.
If you want to save time every day and increase your efficiency at work, then you need to learn how to touch type.
