In today’s world, it’s easy to get off task, forget to do things, and lose important documents. Today, I’m going to tell you a little about three apps that make my life much easier and can make yours easier too.
First, lets talk about the to-do list. Everyone has a to-do list, but many people go about accomplishing their goals differently. Some people use paper to write down everything they need to get done for the week and slap it on the fridge. Others just don’t have a to-do list at all. Personally, if I didn’t have a to-do list I’d be lost and miserable. This is why I use a lovely little app called Todoist. It’s a very simple and beautiful app that is with you everywhere you go. It has easy to use gestures to mark things as completed or reschedule them for another day. There is a Mac app, iPhone app, iPad app, Windows app, Android app and a web app. Todoist is free, but does have the ability to upgrade for more features.
Now, I’m going to tell you about a note taking tool called Evernote. If you're anything like me, you write everything down. The problem with that though is that little sticky notes, notepads, and scratch sheets of paper easily get lost. This is where Evernote comes in handy. With Evernote, it’s easy to organize all your notes and EVERYTHING is searchable. Their powerful search feature makes finding everything a breeze. I use this all the time, and I suggest you do too. Evernote has free, premium and business accounts, so you’re sure to find one that fits your needs.
Last, but not least, lets talk about a Calendar. I personally use Google Calendar, but there are many other calendars out there that will do. I like Google Calendar because it integrates with all my Apple devices and all other apps that I use. It’s very simple to use, and the mobile app is beautiful. Using a calendar is so easy, and I feel like it’s the key to productivity. I live and breathe by my calendar. I put everything on it no matter what. Not only does this help me remember things, but it also helps me plan ahead.
Using these tools can not only help you be more productive, but they can also make you more organized. Now that you’ve read this, put it into action, and be more productive today.
