We can all be a bit more productive or is it just me? There are so many distractions around and we just have so much to do. Don’t you just wish there were more hours in the day so that you could actually get to everything on your list? I am sure i need it. Luckily for us, you can find anything from timing apps to conference apps. If you look at the right places, you can find tools to help you become more productive. The question is always, how do I find these apps? You have to start by evaluating the areas in your life where you need to be more focused and productive. Here are a few apps to help you be more productive and stop procrastinating.
If you are a visual person you know how amazing it is to artistically organize your day. This app is great because it feels like drawing but actually you are creating a fun flow to the things you have to do. It’s almost like drawing out your day and then placing the images in a way that makes sense. It may seem like an app for younger gen but we are who we are. If you are an artsy person, this may just inspire you to get some things done.
Time is really important for all of us and we need to know what we are doing with it. I can spend 3 hours watching television and feel like I’ve achieved nothing with my time. Well this app helps me evaluate my day by showing me how I allocated my time throughout the day. You can setup goals you’d like to meet by the end of the week and this app will track how much time you spent on it and how far in the process you are. Say you have a meeting review due, you set it and then press start meeting review and your time spent will be allocated accordingly. This is one of my personal favorites.
This app works on the Pomodoro technique where you work in intervals. We know from studying that we can only focus for so much time and then our bodies need a break. The same applies with work. This app sets a timer of 25 minutes where you work without stop and then allow a few minutes break. If you have a task that needs to get done and will require a lot of time, this app can help you stick to a schedule and get more done. If we don’t have a plan, we can easily take too many breaks that lasts longer than the time we spent working.
This popular app has gained credibility for a reason. If you have a very busy schedule and sometimes lose track of what needs to be done, this one is for you. You can set to-do lists, schedule appointments and set reminders for just about anything. This is so important because if you are recording all these things in different places, it is easy to get confused and miss something. This all in one app has a reminder to check your lists everyday so that you stay on top of your game.
If you want to be successful or just want your life to run a bit smoother, any one of these apps will help you achieve that. You have to be organised, focused and determined in this life because everyone else could be catching up. Do not spend your time doing things that does not help you grow. Spend time achieving the goals you set out.
