Since this summer, I have been blogging for two years. This decision is one of the most important decisions of my life. It has given me many opportunities. The biggest opportunity is the ability to communicate with like-minded people who also blog and are further on the road to success than I am. A lot of.
This is not your general list of “best productivity tools available”. This is advice for real people to do real things in real life. Most of the people they interviewed have achieved above-average achievements, thanks to these tools. I hope this list can help you further develop yourself as an entrepreneur, an online writer, or anyone you are passionate about working for.
is the most mentioned tool/practice in more than 50 interviews. There’s nothing like a journal to organize your day, workflow, clear your mind, and even reduce stress. More importantly, regular daily practice is considered by many to be the main habit.
It is actually not my own Pomodoro method, but the sheer number of people I’ve asked surprisingly mentioned it. This is not a digital tool, but a time management technique. It was developed by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980s and is easy to implement: sets a timer and it runs for 25 minutes rests for 5 minutes repeats any number of loops method changes include 5 minutes just before Break for 4 cycles, then take a short break (15-30 minutes) and then start again. Of course, all the variables can be adjusted to your liking. You can use the website pomofocus.io. to test this technology right away.
Notion is like Evernote and Google Drive combined, on steroids. This is a very powerful tool and I use it myself. Whether it is teamwork or single-person operation, it is an ideal choice. The fact is that it has hundreds of functions, and if you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s easy to get lost in them. I use about 10% of the tools, which is more than enough for me. , Notion’s number one game-changer? All can be accessed using the “/” key. As you type, you will expand a context menu, you can use the keyboard arrows to navigate, and it has everything you need.
Apple Notes is a great application, it is easier to organize your thoughts than a paper diary. My writing, graphs, and other graphs are often scattered all over the page, and sometimes it is difficult to follow up on my thoughts later. I use a dedicated notebook with a table of contents at the beginning of the notebook to help me process it, but in terms of organization, the numbers are unparalleled.
When I need to take notes in a notebook, I personally use Textedit, but I’m right, I like it because, in the end, I put a lot of separate documents in the notebook. I definitely recommend using Apple Notes, it makes it very easy to sort everything and is available on all Apple devices by default. In addition, the application can also synchronize its content on all devices.
Asana is a web and mobile application for teamwork management. Some people I’ve asked use it to increase personal productivity, but it’s actually designed to work with multiple people. If you own a business with multiple employees, Asana can certainly help streamline work processes. Otherwise, it may be too broad for your personal use.
Todoist is currently one of the most popular to-do apps. I have tried many times in the past, but in the end, I insisted on using Tick tick, which I think is better. The deciding factor is the “schedule task” feature provided in Tick tick. I have introduced this feature in detail here.
Trello (Kanban Board)
Kanban Board is a very popular project management method. Project items are represented by cards and project steps are represented by columns. As the entire project progresses, the cards are moved from one column to the next. The system was developed by Toyota in the 1940s. Trello is a web application that provides a digital version of the billboard. It is very efficient, but it also has some manipulation. You can only use this tool to create Kanban boards, so if you don’t like this method, you won’t like it.
Grammarly is a digital writing aid, as I said to many medium-sized writers and bloggers, it has caused a lot of responses in interviews. The truth is that usually many people use it for email and paperwork, so you don’t have to be a blogger to use this tool to increase your productivity (and professionalism).
My 9–5 use Google Calendar, blog, and personal productivity use the built-in Tick tick calendar. Google’s calendar is great, but I like Ticktick’s calendar, which has the ability to switch from the classic calendar view to a vertical task list organized by date. I use it all the time.
Dropbox is a file hosting service, very similar to Google Drive, except that it is more “social”. It makes it easier to share files with people outside the e-mail circle and with people from other parts of the world, and it is also easier to use to leave comments and notes.
