Working for oneself can be a drain. The lack of interactivity (if you are a solo worker) can take its toll, your environment can often sap inspiration or sometimes you just lack the motivation to get through the day.
Having a portable set up is the key to changing your working day and increasing your productivity levels. Having always had portability at the front of my mind when working I have found ways to take my working day (short of packing your lovely goods in a coffee shop) with me wherever I go.
Like most people, I rely on my trusty laptop. I am not grown up enough to have a desktop computer and being able to move around helps boost my productivity.
But sometimes, the track pad will just not do. This week’s Want It Wednesday is all about wireless mice for your trusty desktop and laptop.
The Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600 is one of the best value and easiest to use.
It has an incredibly long battery life (up to a year without having to change a battery) is super neat and portable and will work seamlessly with both right and left hand users.
This mouse works on virtually any surface, so if you are working on a mouse pad or a reclaimed wood table, there’s no dip in its sensitivity. It’s small too, so it won’t add bulk to your already enormous work bag if you are taking it on the road.
Having looked at some of the other portable mice on the market (looking at you apple magic mouse!) this is so cost effective, you could by one for your home office and one to have a permanent nestling spot in your laptop bag and still have change for lunch while working.
This mouse is one of my favourites. Some tasks need more than a broad knowledge of keyboard short cuts and this one fits the bill without breaking the bank.
