Try Not To Abstract the Hardware
System crash means downtime and downtime gets you nowhere near money!
Discern and understand your computer system. Make sure you have all the required Memory (RAM) you can intuitively render. Keep your network healthy: run defragmentation on your hard drives when needed, always keep up the security active by installing antivirus and malware on your start-up! Don’t forget to clean the dust from the components inside your motherboard occasionally. It clusters over time and can damage the crucial elements.
Remember, while working, you would sometimes find yourself at the nick of time while near a deadline, and you would be working fast enough while skipping the data saving part. I would recommend working on a backup system, or perhaps a laptop will do in this case.

Use the Free Trial Software Wisely
Many of the software companies offer free trial versions of their programs; this isn’t unfair or cheating as they want you to use them.
If you intend to use an application that you haven’t used in years, then download the 30-day free trial version and see and test yourself how well you do. You can also use the search engines to search for the instructions about how to use the application. Moreover, you can also use YouTube to find video tutorials online for different software. As soon as you become proficient enough and get command over the application and have enough balance to afford it, buy the full version for it would give you experience as well as money if you use it professionally and skillfully.
You can also buy CDs or books containing the tutorials offering lessons in the most popular software online or in nearby stores, which is not a bad deal for knowledge is power.

- Let the employer know what version you are working on currently. If you are just one version behind then, they might offer you the upgrade, or you can add it to your bill.
