Thanks to TextExpander for sponsoring this week! I recently had a great time doing a panel about my use of TextExpander for the TextExpander Virtual Summit, and got to talk about how I’ve been using TextExpander since the very beginning, tips I’ve learned, and which of my snippets are my favorites. I’ll share some more of those here soon.

Time is something you can never buy more of. Or is it?

Do you have too much on your plate? Are you so busy that you don’t have time for the things that really matter to you? Being busy isn’t necessarily a good thing, but there is one word that can free up your time and focus: no.

But many of us have a hard time saying no. With the help of productivity expert David Sparks, we created a Snippet that produces a different variant of “no” every time you type no.random.

TextExpander can do that because it supports advanced scripting with JavaScript, AppleScript, and shell scripts. With a little bit of coding knowledge, you can run wild with Snippets. The only limit is your imagination.

Read more about how you can create random responses with TextExpander.

We created that Snippet as part of David’s talk at our recent Virtual Summit, where he talked about intentionally using your time. One of David’s many lessons is that every time you say “yes” to something, it means saying “no” to something else.

That’s just one small way TextExpander can save you time. Many customers save several work days yearly with simple Snippets for their name, email address, and common email replies. Starting at just $3.33 per month for individuals and $8.33 per month for teams, TextExpander can give you back time, the one thing you normally can’t buy for any price.
