I can write a very long list on the many advantages of having two monitors or more can boost productivity. As a stay at home dad I wanted to share tips I use to accomplish quick and easy tasks.
I use one monitor for doing my primary tasks. Instead of printing out documents, I usually review them on one monitor and make any annotations on the other.
Recently I realized that having two monitors is something that helps me when my 17-month-old daughter needs to be entertained for a short period of time while I still need to get work done.
I put my daughter on my lap and open a new browser window where she can watch her favorite youtube personality and my friend @PayasaAgapita.
To prove how effective this can be, I wrote this post while my daughter sat on my lap and watched her videos.
Give having one or more monitors a try. It might help you read or write a blog post or get a few emails out of the way. This is helpful on those days that your toddler or children needs more attention than usual.
Take a look at one of Payasa Agapita’s Videos. Her videos are great if you or your children are learning Spanish!
