Dedicating yourself to some simple tasks every quarter will always set you up for success in the following months. The best housekeeping is proactive not reactive. The less you have to do each quarter the better. In Aurora property management we have an April 1st ritual of cleaning up all the desktop commuters. Try these simple steps to get your devices optimized and running much better.
Cleaning the computers should be your first step. Wipe down all surfaces especially your keyboard, mouse and phone receivers. This should be done frequently but if it’s just you are using these items then you are okay to space out the cleaning. You would be surprised how much grime, dirt and germs these devices attract and hold onto. Clean out any dust on your electronics as well. This will always get them running a bit better if they don’t have to work extra hard through a mountain of dust.
Make sure all devices and apps have been updated. You can check on the status and version numbers for every single program and device you have. To eliminate the need to manually check each time in the future simply enable automatic updates for everything. Once everything is working on the latest firmware, you should see large gains in performance.
Clear out any unnecessary files across the board. This can include physical and digital files. Whichever ones you need to keep should not be touched. You would be surprised, however, how many unnecessary files make their way onto your devices. Newer smartphones can clear this data off for you. Just navigate to the device management settings of your phone and find the right options.
