I feel lucky when someone shares with me a computer shortcut that genuinely saves me significant amounts of time each day. I would like to share with everyone my #1 time-saving trick…
Here are the steps:
So, why is this process special? You don’t have to use the mouse to get virtually anywhere you want to go on the web. Also, fast-fingered keyboard users will zip from desired site to desired site with lightning fast speed once they memorize the keyboard sequence, whereas the simple reach for the mouse would triple the time at least. Doesn’t sound like a big deal until you learn how many different sites you visit each day and the amount of time it take to navigate between them.
For those that did not know already, the “I’m feeling lucky” button on Google immediately transports your browser to the #1 site of its organic listing for that particular search term. With almost every brand of significance, the #1 organic result is the primary site/domain. GOOD Google users have learned a few hacks that ultimately treat the search box almost like a command-line prompt.
However, a LUCKY Google users have learned to type the bare minimum and simply trust Google Thus, 99% of the time, I find that it is better to be LUCKY than it is to be GOOD.
