How to Type Faster and Get things done fast

Now that you’re convinced about the importance of typing faster and accurately, let’s move on to the how’s of it. Here are six ways to significantly improve your typing speed and accuracy.

To get started, make sure that you are sitting upright and with your back not leaning forward towards your desk. A proper upright position helps increase concentration levels and will give you the needed focus boost to type efficiently. Secondly, the way you position your wrists and elbows also make a considerable difference in typing faster and accurately. Make sure that your elbows are always positioned at right angles to the keyboard and that your arms are not bent upwards or downwards. This bending of your arms will make it harder on your forearms or wrists if not positioned properly. Apart from a proper posture of your body, proper positioning of your fingers is also essential.

Below are a few methods to position your fingers for typing faster:

The left-hand pinky finger being placed on the ‘A’ key and responsible for all the keys to the left of it including left shift, caps lock, control/cmd, etc.

The right-hand pinky key being placed on the Colon/Semi-colon button and being responsible for everything on the right of the key.

Position at least one of your thumb on the Spacebar key.

The ring finger, middle finger and index finger of your right hand should be placed on the keys S, D, and F respectively.

The ring finger, middle finger and index finger of your left hand should be placed on the keys L, K, and J respectively.

Eyes away from the keyboard!

If you might have ever attended some sort of typing classes, you could remember the way tutors used to force people to type without looking at the keyboard. The sub-conscious mind is pretty powerful and as you type daily and more often, you will develop the habit of typing faster and not looking at the keyboard while doing so. Looking at the keyboard while typing reduces one’s typing speed and the written words are more prone to errors as you are not aware of what’s being typed into it. Although this means more errors initially, this technique itself will be the reason for your increased typing speeds. A little bit of cheating is permitted, where you can peek once in a while at the keyboard, but try to look away from the keyboard as much as possible as you are typing. Looking away from the keyboard and the screen during typing aides in real-time copy-editing, saving you a lot of time in the end. You easily get used to the layout of the keyboard and the positioning of the keys as you work your way without looking at the keyboard much often.
