    Productivity Thread

    I am working a lot on trying to be more productive. Here is a quick list of things that have already helped me be more productive in 2k11. Feel free to add yours and explain why


    01) mind42.com: mind mapping website, free, allowed me to mindmap all my daily goals and plans for 2k11

    02) 42goals.com: free daily goal site by the same people as mind42.com I actually paid them 20 for a year because it lets you group goals (so I made morning, evening & night. I would have donated for the free mind42 site anyway). It is totally usuable without paying though

    03) Toodeldo.com: free 2-do list site, includes plugin for firefox and an app for the iphone (that cost 1.99 for the app). I actually switched from another iphone 2 do list app to this one. I like the fact that it synchs both from the web to app and app to web. This is very convienet for me.

    04) Mint.com personal finance, again free, great overview.

    Anyone else? Please be specific of the name, if it costs money and how it helped you.

    If you have a Mac, the new App Store has a free app called MindNode. It's a brainstorming app and is crazy easy to use and organizes your thoughts perfectly.

    I installed it, but haven't used it yet, but will when the new semester starts for college.

    There is a really great one for mac I can find out the name. I use mind42. This was my first year mind mapping and I like it alot. That being said I feel it is only effective when combined with other pieces like a 2-do list & daily goals

  4. Some years ago I used "The Brain" (pun NOT intended Try searching for it, it was freeware, but really powerful and useful. Sort of 3D mind mapping with extra bells and whistles. I no longer use all these productivity things, because realized my bottlenecks are not in planning/tracking, but in having enough energy and setting right priorities.

    Everyone can increase their productivity and I would highly suggest you look into this area. It can help you in many different ways. Some basics on productivity:

    -Know your goals, so you know what to work on. If you don't know your goals, how do you know if you are productive? My definition of productivity is getting work done towards your goal.

    -Once you know your goals, 80/20 your life. Cut the fat and work on your winners.

    -Use a calendar and to-do list. They can be used together for maximum productivity. Never forget important dates again (appointments, deadlines, birthdays, etc) and have an overview of how your day/week/looks like.

    -Do not multitask. Focus one task at a time and start your day with the most important task first that will get you closer to your biggest goal.

    -Use cloud storage for savings your documents so you never have to worry about it again in case you need to access it somewhere else. Especially if you have an iPad and iPhone.

    -Work in cycles and sprints. Work hard for 50 minutes, then take a 10m break. Then again 50m work and 10m break. Every 2 cycles you take a 30-45m break where you eat food and disengage from work. Then get back on it. Make it run like clockwork for optimal output and performance.

    -Build productive rituals in the morning and evening. Morning: exercise, eat protein, and get ready for the day. Evening: disengage from any work and relax with entertainment like tv shows or reading.

    -Know all keyboard shortcut of your most used programs. Will save you TONS of time over a period.

    -Check email/fb only twice a day on fixed times. Mine are 12.30pm and 7.30pm.

    Some software I use (and have paid full price for lol):

    -Omnifocus
    -BusyCal
    -Mindjet Mindmanager
    -Rescuetime.com (Tracks your activities on your computer so you can see when you are productive or lazy and how to improve. You can only improve things once you've measured it first.)

    I have now added evernote as a replacement for the voice recording app on the iphone. Once again the synching is what sold me (much like toodelto). I have no need for dropbox but I can see how people would want that.

    2k11 is def the year of productivity for me
