Workarounds can save you time, money, and energy. All it requires is a little curiosity, creativity, and persistence.


Life tends to present us with standard options. We’re told we can do A, B, or C. And sometimes that’s enough. But often it’s not. The best choice for a given situation might actually be a D, an M, or a Z.

For example, I purchased Logos Bible Software a while back when I had a Mac. Since then, I’ve upgraded to a Chromebook, which I love, except that it doesn’t run certain programs like Logos.

What to do? Well, according to Logos customer support there’s nothing I can do short of getting a Mac or a PC because they aren’t interested in developing an application for my operating system. Great.

I can run it on my Android phone, but really, who wants to do in-depth Bible study on a tiny screen?

Enter the workaround.

First this, then this, then this:

When ethical, workarounds can save us time, money, and energy. All it requires is a little curiosity, creativity, and persistence. A quick Google search can help too.

What sticky problems and tough choices are you facing?

Perhaps what you need is a workaround.
