Eliminate clicks… that is one of my primary goals in life. The click of the mouse at first glance appears to be an extremely simple and routine task, but in reality the accumulation of mouse clicks during the day represents a high level of MANUAL work that I am having to do in order to manage a process or get a job done.
In today’s article we explore one simple method for eliminating a few of those clicks through the use of a tool called IFTTT found at www.ifttt.com. IFTTT is an abbreviation of “If This Then That”… how can it get much more simple than that.
I encourage you to explore the site and follow these five easy steps to get started using the tool today:
- create an IFTTT account

- select one recipe that someone else has shared and customize it for your need
- save the recipe to your account and activate it – I guarantee you it will save you time in the long run
