This has been a very busy week for me with various projects on all fronts that need to be accomplished in a short time frame – not to mention the kiddos are almost out of school for summer so we have had many additional activities there. Due to the craziness of the week I have decided to step back and look at the top of productivity and the various ways a person can stay productive, increase productivity and manage it.
I personally think that being productive has many components of it. A biggie is mindset – how do we stay focused when we have a lot on our plate. Another aspect is managing tasks and sometimes this means offloading some of these tasks. I recently started having someone come clean my house again on a regular basis and have found it a great help and time saver. Another huge aspect of being productive are the tools and systems that we use.
In today’s technology world we have a lot of tools available to us to help with productivity. These tools range from the old fashion pen and paper, to online tools, downloadable tools and tools on our phones. I have a handful of tools that I use on a regular basis, however I would like to create a list of some of the tools that others use in your daily life and quest to be productive.
There are literally 1000’s of tools available out there but which ones do you like the best?
I am also asking this question on Twitter and will be posting a list of the tools that are suggested by others in the next couple of days.
To start with here are two of my favorites for managing Social Media:
Hootsuite – a great tool to manage your Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and more
Feedly – a great RSS feed reader
Please share your comments on your favorite tools
