Welcome to Day 21 of MyJobMag 30 Day Work Challenge. The 30 Day Work Challenge is designed to help you get your footing solid either you are starting a new job or as a new manager. You can tweet at us @myjobmag to let us know how you are doing or if you have any questions.
So ready for today’s challenge?
On our day 13, we spoke about the Pomodoro technique. The Pomodoro technique is a framework that helps you work better and faster. And the principle is very simple. I strongly encourage you to check out the technique and start applying it today.
However, that is one step in achieving and improving productivity. Today, I want to introduce you to the science of working smarter and better.
And that is using productivity apps to work smarter. You see by using an app, you can work more efficiently, faster and get more done.
And fortunately, there are tons of apps that can help you do more work and improve your process. A few examples of them is Zapier, Hootsuite for social media marketing, Slack for corporate communication and Trello for collaboration.
Think of any task you want to perform and I bet you, there are ways you can combine one or two apps together to make such task a breeze. Too much distraction at work? Take Noisli for a ride. Need to work from anywhere, you don’t even need access to your computer. By leveraging cloud storage such as Google Drive, you can have access to all your document and edit them on the fly. Need to write down ideas as they come, Evernote is your best friend. Hope you get what I am driving at. Use them to your advantage that is why they exist initially.
Tell us which task you perform repeatedly, let us recommend a productivity app for you.
Now that is all for today’s challenge. Join us on LinkedIn and let us know how you are faring
