  • 33. Don't forget about your existing tools!  Have you fully explored what your existing tools can do?  ex: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook  Often easier to accomplish a given task with an existing tool rather than have one more tool/app to worry about.  Don't forget about your OS and your computer!  Getting better at the basics will have an impact on everything else you do  Try to regularly learn something about your existing tools.
  • 34. Risks of using third-party services  How safe is your personal information/data?  Private?  Secure?  Can be archived? Preserved?  What kind of support do you have if something goes wrong?  Collaborative tools: are other users forced to sign up?  Remember: what is ok for you might not be ok for work!
