Quick Friday Tip: Start Using Two Screens

Posted on 11 April 2014 by Andrei

Your initial reaction might be something along the lines of “Why do I need *two* screens?” and it’s understandable, I had a similar one but after I started using two screens, I never looked back. Maybe you’re a domainer, maybe you’re an online entrepreneur, maybe both. It doesn’t matter, you’ll experience an impressive productivity boost either way. Don’t just take my word for it though, study after study has proven that an additional screen helps quite a bit.

According to Jon Peddie Research, adding a monitor might boost your productivity by 20% – 30%, according to Microsoft it could boost your productvity by 9% – 50%, according to the University of Utah it could boost your productivity by up to 52% and the list could go on and on. There’s quite a bit of data behind this recommendation and while the exact productivity boost percentage depends on your habits/occupation, it’s safe to say that it will definitely be significant.

Does each extra monitor increase productivity?

Well yes, it might but the effect is nowhere near as impressive as the effect of the second monitor. Sure, adding a let’s say third monitor might further increase your productitity but studies have shown that the percentage is nowhere near as spectacular. For most people, it’s most likely overkill. Adding a second monitor however is not and no matter what your working/surfing habits may be, the effects will probably be impressive.

All in all, I’m reasonably confident that if you were to start using two screens as of tomorrow, you’d thank me and wouldn’t look back. Again, I understand that your initial reaction might be questioning the necessity of a second screen, I had a similar one but after switching from one to two screens, most people end up wishing they had done it sooner.

    A terrific tip, I don’t use two screens, but I do use two and even 3 computers during the busiest times of the year. Does help save time for sure. Focused work is the most important thing though. A lot can get done on a single screen if the person concerned is involved in focused work and not being distracted or disturbed by anything or anyone else. Try the Pomodoro Technique to improve your focus.
