1) ⌘ + Space — Bring up ‚Spotlight‘ search

2) ⌘ + F — Find things in documents
Finding words in documents is tedious, but typing ⌘ + F speeds up the process. The command works in Pages, Safari, Chrome, Word, and just about everywhere else.
3) ⌘ + A — Select everything
Selecting everything, especially in a big document, can take ages. Hitting ⌘ + A selects everything instantly.
