Productivity Pointers – Thur Aug 23, 2007

Need to set a fire under your productivity? Entrepreneurs always have many things going on simultaneously, and sometimes the sheer volume can overwhelm. And that reduces productivity. Well, whether you need a productivity boost for research or work, you’re in luck. Here are a few articles recently appearing in the blogosphere that should help. [Updated: with an additional 2 entries whose references I'd misplaced earlier.]

  1. Mobile productivity tools. If you’re on the go, you might be suffering a few pangs of non-productivity. But there are tools out there that might help. Mashable lists over 45 mobile productivity resources.
  2. Research productivity tools. College Degree has a list of 99 mindmapping resources, tools, and tips. Of course, it isn’t just for students. I’ve been using mind mapping for a very long time for both study and work.
  3. Managing your to-do list. Web Worker Daily provides a secret to managing to-do lists – keep them small – and an explanation of why this works.
  4. Turn off instant messaging. Xfep suggests turning off text chat to increase productivity. I can’t emphasise how effective this is. Text chat might be more convenient than email or phone in some ways. However, if you’re carrying on one of those chats where you talk for a few minutes, do something else, then chat some more, it’ll be hard to concentrate. I use this tip regularly, but sometimes not enough.
  5. A plethora of productivity tips. Instigator Blog asked readers to submit their best productivity tips, which resulted in an index of great tips. This is a must-check resource.
