Hi all. I found the shares here to be very useful. Thought I would share mine as I go Cold Turkey.
10.05Am 5 August. Day 4. Kinda loving and hating it!
I work as a coach and take a lot of notes so I want to do this change quick.
*I'm using some 'learning music' (Kelly Howell or google learning music).
*Bought a new ergonomic keyboard.
*I take notes from my client calls on paper with a pen, then type up slowly. So I can maximize learning time and still do my work.
*Installed it on phone to but removed it for now. This could be something to consider.
Maybe 5hrs a day total typing.
Using https://thetypingcat.com/ to learn and achieving 15wpm now. But slower here. I imagine constant use of a program could become a anchor.
I completely confirm almost everything I read on this forum prior to starting.
I find it very reassuring now although I'm slow, I'm seeing that my fingers actually rarely leave the home row. Qwerty seems so silly now. I did think about quitting. Several times but as I'm struggling, I can see, I can really hit my REAL Goal of typing as fast as I think! Or at least use this period as a time to also anchor better posture and self belief. I imagine few will fully convert as it's simply challenging and human nature is lazy.
If you start:
Consider how many ways you can make it harder to quit. (Hence I'm writing here & on Facebook)
And how many ways you can make it easier, funner, efficient and a streamlined part of your year.
Maybe do it one phone first. (Love to hear if someone tries this approach)
