Most of us spend a good deal of time by the keyboard, so your typing speed very much affects your working speed.
Most of us underestimate the impact this has on our productivity, so I made an rough calculation of how much time you could save by increasing your typing speed. It’s based on 45 full 5-day workweeks per year and and hour of pure typing per day.
|Over time||1 year||2 years||5 years||10 years||25 years|
|1%||2,5 hrs||5 hrs||1 day||2 days||5 days|
|5%||1 day||2 days||5 days||10 days||25 days|
|10%||3 days||5 days||15 days||30 days||73 days|
|25%||7 days||15 days||37 days||73 days||184 days|
|50%||15 days||29 days||73 days||147 days||367 days|
There’s plenty of software to help you learn to type faster. I use aTypeTrainer4Mac myself, and I would definitely recommend it to all Mac users. A great app which amazingly is freeware.
