    As it says in the title. Lets make this an 'IM life pro tips' thread.

    One of my best purchases this year has been a decent desk chair. Up until last month I sat my ass cheeks on an old, shitty, worn out leather seat that my fantastic Dad gave me. It's still here, would never throw it away, but for something that I spend 15 hours of my life in it wasn't good enough. My back feels better, my posture has improved, and for £300 it was a solid investment.

    But for me, the best thing I've bought (my first IM earnings) has been a RAT gaming mouse. A fully programmable mouse that does everything. The ability to back button or refresh a browser, or anything else you can program into this mouse, is a time saver.

    For IM related stuff? Well having nearly everything automated and using the beautiful program Dragon Naturally Speaking for giving instruction to my computer and use it to write textes...
    This program is the shit if you use it correctly. Talk with your PC and it does what you want. Simple and awesome.

    Fiverr services that are:

    1) 9 months or older
    2) 98% or higher
    3) 200 or more positive comments.

    Fiverr services in that category tend to be solid gold imho and worth 10Xs the $5 I spend on them.

    Letting go.

    Letting go of all the things I tried to do myself and outsourcing most of it.

    Video editing, some link building, reporting etc.

    The key is to get stuff done and finished, not perfect. You build on that.

    There is only one of you and its no shame getting others to build your dreams.

    I bought a portable keyboard and mouse from Logitech, it was $35 but worth every dollar. I always keep it with me inside the laptop backpack.
