4 Time Management Tools To Research
Have you ever gotten on the Internet to check out something and the next thing you know it’s a couple of hours later?
Being online can steal valuable time away from the projects you need to accomplish.
At the end of the day you might be scratching your head asking, “Where did my day go?”
Now there’s a way you can really answer that question.
Recently I found about an app that you might want to incorporate in your business.
1) It’s called Rescue Time. This app will help you discover where your time is being spent.
Each time you change a window or open a new program the app tracks your time
You can set a timer to tell you when you’ve spent too much time on Facebook.
The app will help you set goals such as how much time you’ll spend on Twitter.
Imagine getting a productivity score, detailed reports and more.
There is a free version. Should you decide to upgrade to the premium paid account you’ll have access to features such as blocking distraction sites, tracking offline activity, notifications and daily highlights.
If you are an Apple user you might want to also check out an app called Things.
2) Things is an easy task manager.
With Things, you can store your to-do lists in the cloud and keep them updated on your Mac, iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
What I liked about this app is that it already has some lists that are ready for you to start using.
Every project you add to Things will automatically show up in the sidebar so you can access it at any time.
There is also a “daily review” so you can see what tasks you had down and what tasks you might need to postpone.
My all time favorite for saving time is using a calendar so I couldn’t leave out an option for one
3) CalenGoo is a fast way to access and change your Google Calendar.
This app offers 5 different calendar views.
You can add reminders to your events and use Google’s free SMS reminders.
4) Sunrise Calendar is another app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It’s a calendar app made for Google Calendar, Exchange, and iCloud Support
It has time zone support.
A feature that I think is pretty awesome is that you can see faces and profiles of people you are meeting with using Linkedin. More than ever it’s important that you have a professional profile photo on Linkedin as well as all your social media sites.
This really helps you be prepared for networking events.
When it comes to apps there are so many choices.
