Mousing Lefty Style: Week 1

Well, it’s been a week since I switched to using my left hand to operate my mouse. I’m still not even close as accurate as using my right, but I think the switch in my head has flipped. I say this because yesterday, when I was reaching for the mouse on a PC I don’t use very often, I started to reach with my right hand, but it seemed awkward and I grabbed it with my left hand and it felt more natural.

My slowness can be a little frustrating at times, but I have used Dreamweaver on several occassions as well as basic Photoshop editing. One real positive thing is that I find it more convenient using the arrow and page up/down keys since they are on the right side of the keyboard and my right hand is now free.

I’m actually fairly optimistic that I can actually stick with this method of mousing. Stay tuned for more on this experiment.
