How to Be More Productive

how to be more productive

I’m always on the look out on how to be more productive so I can stay on top of my work and not feel frazzled before my day is over.Today I am sharing my productivity tips from Marseille, France (watch the video to soak in a bit of the French ambience) otherwise read along as I share with you my 2 beloved and most used apps for productivity:

  • Google Docs:

    I highly recommend this, I use it for all my meetings. You can see in real time as someone is editing a document, this eliminates duplication of the same copy. Picture this: Everyone is working on the same word document and there is confusion on which one is the most up to date (sound familiar?). Say goodbye to multiple email versions of the same document. You will have your document one place, and the cool thing is that you can also see people logging in and typing into the document in REAL TIME. If you forget your laptop at home or you’re travelling and you want to show someone your document, you can login via your phone (using the app) and show it to them during an in-person meeting or email it across to someone who might need it. I can’t stress what a stress reliever this one is! Try it here.

Plan and brand your website

I love this for project management as it’s very visual, easy to understand and you can create any sort of time line you want. You can simply upload photographs and it creates a picture card or thumbnail of your graphic. In the past, I have tried using Basecamp, Asana and so many other project management tools and found them too wordy (know what I mean?). This is so much more picturesque and refreshing on the eyes.
