I badly want to learn touch-typing because it will enable me not to look at the keyboard when typing and will increase my typing speed in the long run. But I face one problem which is related to "in the long run":
With my "hunt-and-peck" system, I am reasonably fast over 350 characters-per-minute. With touch-typing right now I type little over 100 cpm. The thing is, during work I must keep my speed around the 300 cpm mark, otherwise I simply can not produce the amount of text necessary to get my job done everyday.
So what happens is this: I train a little touch-typing in the evening and several hours every weekend. But Monday-Friday I type ~8 hours with hunt-and-peck out of necessity.
It's like two system fighting in my head. I really want to make the full switch to touch-typing, but this would entail a temporary productivity drop which, although it would be very beneficial in the long-run, I simply can not afford.
Is there anyone here who made the switch from very fast hunt-an-peck typer to touch-typer, and at the same time had a demanding job where he needs to keep high typing speed? How can I can out of this catch-22?
