I find repeated communication and keyboard shortcuts particularly useful. They save significant amount of time. Thank you for sharing these good thoughts, Fran!

Thanks, Basma!

This is applying our engineering nature to everything. Do it once, automate it the second time!

Great tips!

I haven't been a Vim guy either, but starting this year, I switched to it (I used it earlier, so I didn't have to learn all the shortcuts from 0).

I put Vim on a different virtual desktop on Mac, go into fullscreen, start a Pomodoro timer in Toggl (fantastic tool, btw), and work uninterruptedly because I use only the keyboard and I can't un-maximize Vim without the mouse. Nowhere to run from coding. :)

p.s.: we use the same Keyboard!
