Hey all, it’s Troy and welcome back! We here on the LRS Education Services blog team really appreciate you reading all of the exciting information we put out. Because it’s exciting! Really!

So you all know that I’ve got your back. Remember when I showed you how to get a raise? I just wanted to point that out so you know I’d never steer you wrong. In today’s post I want to help you have a simpler life.

The Problem

Here is the problem. Well, not the problem with in-laws or lack of exercise or too many doughnuts, you’re on your own there. But the problem with why you aren’t as productive as you want to be at your job. I’ve been in IT for about 20 years now (I’m not old, I was 10 when I started ;-)) and I know the problem…it has two parts.

  1. You have to put out a lot of fires.
  2. You have to do the same mundane tasks over and over again.

Let’s Talk About Your Day

During your work day you may deal with issues related to client computers, servers, network devices, mobile devices, the financial bottom line and more. I’m not talking about projects here, I’m referring back to The Problem we just covered. But the best use of your day would be to work on projects to grow the business or make the technology more efficient.

Some Gory Details

When dealing with client issues (depending on your corporate policy) you will either try to resolve them or immediately reimage the system. If you try to resolve and can’t do so then somewhere along your troubleshooting path you will reach a reimage step. Perhaps before that point in the process you discover a misconfiguration that’s easy to fix…but was a pain to find. Or maybe the problem is on someone’s phone or tablet. Then you have to deal with a completely different operating system where you may not be able to simply reimage because it’s not even a company owned device! What do you do?!?!?!?!?!

What If?

What if you could put in a little up front effort and remove a HUGE chunk of the work from both parts of this problem? Would that interest you? If technology isn’t making your life easier then it isn’t working the way it should. Let me tell you how we at LRS Education Services can help.
