Switch to two monitors

If you do a lot of work on the computer your productivity will be substantially increased by adding a second monitor. A second monitor reduces the amount of time you spend clicking around to switch between windows, and allows you to see and work on multiple documents at the same time.

Think about it: Would you even for one second consider using a physical desk that was 12" x 15"? Why not? Maybe because you don't want to spend all your time constantly reshuffling the things on your desktop to bring the current item to the top? If you wouldn't use a physical desk that small, why would you use a computer screen that small? Especially considering that you probably do a lot more of your work on your computer desktop than on your physical desktop.

I have been using two monitors for a year and a half now, and when I occasionally have to work using a single monitor I feel trapped and confined, and my productivity drops quite a bit.
