Pssst… want to know a quick and easy secret to getting more done? Enlarge the font size you’re working with.
A study by optometrists published in the journal Optometry and Vision Science found that something as simple as increasing the font size on a document you’re working on can help you get more done. Not only will you work faster, but the task at hand will seem easier.
Interestingly enough, the effect it the same whether you’re young or old. There was no difference in the reaction of teens to the reaction of senior citizens.
Even the small difference of working with a 12 point font instead of a 10 point font can make a difference in the way you perceive the task. So go ahead, increase that font size or enlarge that screen view. You’ll get more done.
