A Better Computer

Matt Birchler, introducing his new YouTube channel:

Today I’m excited to introduce my new YouTube channel, A Better Computer. This channel will be devoted to helping you make the computer in front of you, whether it be an iPhone, and iPad, or PC, better than it was before; we want to make it a better computer.

It’s not just another tech YouTube channel though, the idea is that the videos will be short, but highly produced, and have a very limited scope. For example, alongside the trailer for the channel, there are already three great videos to watch:

My favourite so far has to be the most recent one, about making tasks smaller in order to get more done. Since this is something I’ve been doing myself for a while, and I’ve always found it to be a very effective way to get big chunks of work done. Because for me personally, while I want to complete big tasks, the idea of them usually puts me off. But if I split the one big task into various small tasks that can be individually actioned, then it’s so much easier to make progress, and eventually complete it.

As you can tell, A Better Computer is going to be one great YouTube channel, so I definitely recommend subscribing.

    I’m loving it so far. PLEASE keep it going. A flirtation with basic shortcuts would be excellent.

  2. Right? It’s hard to “apply to college” but the component parts are pretty simple. Make your tasks so simple it seems dumb not to do them 😜

    No problem at all! Me too, it’s like all of a sudden big tasks become possible when you split them up. You’d think it would obvious, but it’s so easy to miss.

  4. Thank you so much for the link! I’m glad you liked the episode on smaller tasks, too! It’s something I started doing about a year ago and it’s changed everything about how I use my task manager.
