1. Learn how to do data entry faster by doing the exercise below:
Jane Marie Doe
256 Main Avenue
Grand Rapids, Michigan 06569

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. Writing an equal sign instead of a hyphen
• There are likely to be times when you'll accidentally hit the equal sign key instead of the hyphen key.
• To stay sharp on how to quickly correct this without looking at keyboard, practice hitting the equal sign key then hitting backspace key then instinctively using the index finger on your right hand to hit hyphen key.

4. 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

5. 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."

6. 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

7. Not using thumb to hit period key on 10-key pad
• If you use your thumb to hit the period button, you're likely to prematurely hit 'Enter'.
• To avoid this error, stay in the habit of using other fingers to hit the period key.

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.
