Ian's Messy Desk

When the HVAC system was installed, someone thought we might want the user manual for the system: a 400 page PDF document. Instead of filing the PDF on the network, the document was printed and placed in a filing cabinet , where it will sit until doomsday. Despite the improvements in document handling technology, despite the the convenience of a PDF, we still produce a lot of paper. It adds up. I can print any web page to pdf and store it on the drive.

Dumb Little Man

Prepare equipment in advance I still remember my first few tries to go out running last year: in the morning I would force myself to wake up early and then spend 15 minutes trying to find my shoes, choosing the right clothes and another 30 minutes setting the right playlist to listen to while running. This year, the night before my first run I have set all the equipment next to my bed: smartphone with the playlist prepared, running shoes, clothes, bottled water.

Dumb Little Man

I’m not suggesting we put up the garage sale signs just yet, or join the nearest Amish community. Wear old clothes or beaten up shoes, use broken golf clubs or last year’s equipment.

Tip #3: Fill Up Your Space With More “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” - Leonardo da Vinci This is the big one, my friends.

How many of you find that new employees don’t get equipment or security access on time, are missing their name plate or aren’t set up in payroll? Companies are notoriously lax with terminations in making sure physical and system access has been removed, equipment returned and HR exit interview is completed.

Expectations For Your Outsourcer to Reduce Your Risk

Small Business CEO

Did you sign up for outsourcing figuring you could forget about IT? We discuss the management of the outsourcer that sets up and maintains your servers, network, help desk and other IT functions, referred to as a managed services provider (MSP).
