Three Steps to Efficieny

I was watching the video of Seven Habits of Highly Effective Text Editing. I am sucker for anything titled Seven Habits.  I use Vim (Vi improved). Vi was the first editor I started with on Unix and since there were DOS versions available, kept using it. So when I saw a session on Vim on Google video, I decided to watch.

Here is Bram Moolenaar’s mantra

  1. Detect Inefficiency
  2. Find a quicker way
  3. Make it a habit

I think this applies to programming as well and probably many other areas.
