As I spend part of the year travelling to clients, I take different laptops, depending on my role. If I am doing team psychometrics, I have to use my Windows machine with me as I have software for assessing team types or if I have presentations, I prefer my iMac. The trouble is I often use a different mouse (or is it mice if I have more than one), matching up a myriad of the mouse to their resident USB receiver. It takes me ages as you also have to check for the battery power. Anyway, I was not struggling to work out New Year resolutions for 2024, but this year, I will get organised and match and colour code them all so I will not waste hours doing this again. Yes, I know this is boring but not as dull as working through my accounts and expenses. Until 2024. Enjoy your Xmas vacation and a Happy New 2024.
