With the end of the year around the corner and the holidays now in full swing keep yourself organized can be the key to keeping yourself sane. We all need them: productivity tools. Productivity tools can be simple from a written To-Do list on paper to a software package.
I’m a firm believer in technology; however, no matter how hard I try I can’t stop using a written To-Do list. We’re completely Apple products at Mind The Gap PR so I use Reminders for my electronic To-Do list so I can carry it everywhere with me. Yeah. Not. I start out with my paper list then I put it into Reminders. Yes, that’s a bit backwards, but it works for me. Beats having Post-It notes everywhere. Right? I use the Flags and folders in Mail to keep my In-Box as trim as it can be. My goal for 2014 is to go 95% paperless.
So there are a lot of great tools and suggestions out there help you be more productive. Here are some… And their titles say it all:
3 Ways to Streamline Your Business – Smart ways to help you make things easier.
Five Free Productivity Tools to Help Run Your Small Business – I use most of these tools and could not live without DropBox and FreshBooks.
22 Free Google Products for Small Business Owners – Google does offer some great products. And I use a good bit of them.
With a little help, we can keep productive when the pace quickens and the distractions are great.
