Do you remember that catchy slogan for Wrigley’s Double Mint gum? Way back when, “the Double Mint twins” used to sing about the joys of all things “double.” Well, I have something to add to their list: double monitors. If you’re still working with only one computer monitor, you’re limiting your productivity more than you know. In fact, Jon Peddie Research estimates an average of up to 42% increased productivity when using two monitors. Chew on that!
You can add a high quality monitor for a few hundred dollars. And it will be one of the best technology investments you’ll ever make. Think about it. With two monitors, you can have Westlaw open on one monitor while you draft your motion or brief on another. You can review a deposition on one screen while you draft your opening statement on the other. You get the idea. Two monitors will give you incredible flexibility, and you’ll see your productivity increase dramatically. The universal comment I hear from my clients who have made the switch is, “Why didn’t I do this years ago?!?”
So, double your pleasure, double your fun, double your monitors. I promise it will pay off for you. And while you’re at it, get everyone on your staff two monitors. You’ll see their productivity increase. It might even double.
P.S. After you install your second monitor – or if you’re already working with two – check out Ultramon software. It makes using two monitors even easier.
