1. Learn how to do data entry faster by doing the exercise below:
Jane Marie Doe
114 Main Avenue
Grand Rapids, Michigan 06598

When typing Jane, lift your left hand fingers after hitting the A key with your fifth finger to eliminate the likelihood of hitting the E key before you can type a N.  
• Marie: Lift your right fingers after hitting the M key and lift your left fingers after hitting the R key.
• Grand Rapids: Lift your left fingers after hitting the A key both times. 
Michigan: Lift your right fingers after hitting the I key both times.

2. Practice touch typing for about ten minutes or more almost daily, making sure to use the proper fingering. 
• This will keep your keyboard touch and muscle memory stronger besides making you sharper.
Warming up, tapping your fingers and thrusting your arms forward a few times before doing a test/exercise will help you hit the ground running right away and can reduce frustration from not starting out as poorly. 
• Also, if you work on a list of certain words like I do, it helps to do it at least once a week so you'll have more ease doing the tough words you've written down when it comes to clutch time.

3. Knowing when to use 4th finger to write a hyphen
• There will be times when you'll need to switch from using the 4th finger on your right hand to using your right pinkie instead - words such as "carry-on" require such a shift.
• Type: carry-on.

4. Two of the techniques the video above covers are 1) touching the groove marks on the F and J keys and 2) not looking down. 
• If finding those marks after lifting your fingers to hit other keys works for you, more power to you; 
• But, I find it easier to slide my fingers back into position where the 2nd finger on my left hand is slightly over the F key and the 2nd finger on my right hand is slightly over the J key. 
• As for never looking down, it's okay to look up if you're having a bad day and having trouble hitting a particular key such as the apostrophe key or comma key even though you may usually have it mastered.

5. Make doing long or tough words easier by mentally breaking them down into two or three parts. 
• For example, I wrote the word "particular" in the paragraph above. 
• You can do this word by solely focusing on "part" then typing it out then doing "ic" then doing "ular". 
• Type: particular expediency circuitously

6. Typing "than" words
• To avoid accidentally typing "that", slightly raise your left fingers after hitting T key.
• Type: "I thank you for giving me that advice."

7. Doing "co" words
• You'll prevent hitting the O key first by slightly raising your right fingers before hitting the C key.
• Type: cold could come

8. Making your 4th finger stronger
• The 4th finger is naturally the weakest one; see for yourself by lifting each finger one by one. I'm still trying to make the 4th finger on my right hand as strong as the one on my left hand daily.
• By making your weaker 4th finger stronger, you can improve your finger control on the keyboard.
• Make this digit stronger by specifically using it to flush the toilet, change the channels on your remote control stick, push the start button on your washing machine, etc.

It's not time to leave, as you have one more step to your destination of quickly becoming a terrific typist or having your kids ace their keyboarding class.
