I’d never do this with my work machine

Last night I booted my MacBook Air to do 2-3 important things before I forgot. I ended up doing 8-10 things and shutting down.

Then I remembered that I shut down before I did one of those important things. I powered up again and got it done. It only took a minute because booting is painless & fast, so I could quickly do just one more thing.

That’s the part I’d never do with my work machine. Undergo the 5 minute long boot process to capture a thought or complete a 90 second task.

How much do “I’d never do that with my work machine” items cost us?

Time to change my work machine so that it supports my work and getting one more thing done, instead of discouraging it.
