My Recommended Tools
For years, I have said that my favorite organizing and productivity tool, for work and home, is the timer. This timer takes it one stop further by providing a large face where all can see time elapsing. Use it to keep your meetings on track, to minimize interruptions by communicating to colleagues that you’re focusing, or any time you need to stick to your boundaries. Learn more.
If you’re a notetaker, prefer writing your notes instead of typing them, and value having your notes digital, this product is for you! You write like pen and paper, use the app to take a picture of your notes, and send them to your computer. It really couldn’t be easier. Plus it has all the benefits of notetaking, digital access, and saving the environment one piece of paper at a time!
There is SO much content out there about organization, productivity, time management, etc. At the end of the day, we’re all saying essentially the same thing – just packaging it different to meet different people’s ways of thinking. If I were to recommend one book though, it would be this one. First published in 1989, Stephen Covey’s are foundational and still relevant today.
