Working harder isn’t always the solution to your most problems.

You gotta work smarter too

Some of the hardest working people I’ve ever known were just digging themselves into deeper holes.

In life the real “sweat equity” comes from a cooperative brain-muscle coalition.

Just thinking and not acting, or just acting without thinking, are both recipes for disaster .

It’s one of the main reasons we create AutoHotkey courses.  Investing in yourself to automate your problems allows you to work Smarter, not Harder!

But YOU need to be the one to take action and start learning how to automate the mundane!

Speaking of which, if you missed it we’re creating a course that will help teach you the core basics so you can stop using your computer like a typewriter.   Our course “ Rising Above PC Incompetence: what EVERY PC User should know about using a Windows Computer ”, which we’re currently working on will help you learn the things that can really help you level-up in everyday life!  Check out the planned syllabus here.  If you’re interested you can sign up to be notified when it is ready (and get 35% off )

Now on with the show…

Lexikos Responded to the AutoHotkey Challenge!

When I logged into the AHK forum a while back I was stoked to that Lexikos had replied to our AutoHotkey challenge!  Isaias and I read through his reply and created this video covering his response.   As always, thank you Lexikos for all the hard work you do!  AutoHotkey wouldn’t be anywhere where it is today without all your efforts!

Creating a List of files in a simple ListView in v2

I was beginning to create a new video documenting what we automated that week in AutoHotkey and I realized I was doing the same thing each week in a tool.   Why not have Isaias create a simple tool to display the files for me?  During this video he shows how easy it is!   We realized if you’d taken the Intro to GUIs course and Intermediate AutoHotkey Course, you would have all the knowledge needed to have created the script.

Don’t forget our courses come with a 200% money back guarantee.   If you’re not happy with the quality of the course in the first 30 days you can not only get your money back but you can get DOUBLE what you paid for it!

I was having the guys update my media player and realized they would have a hard time understanding the reasons behind my code.  So I got them on Zoom and walked them through my crazy reasoning in this video.
