Doodle your way to a meeting time

No I don’t mean drawing goofy things on a piece of paper. I mean using the site/service Doodle to help you plan a meeting:

So, lately, I’ve found myself informally assuming this role, driving a surprising number of gone-fallow projects just by using Doodle to propose a simple check-in. The bottom line is that this […]

Making the case for Enterprise 2.0

Are you trying to bring Web 2.0 into your work place?  You know that wikis, RSS, blogs, and other apps will save you time but you can’t quite get the boss to sign on?
I know the feeling.  I’ve snuck more than my share of apps over the years into companies.  The only way got away […]

Expanding the top 5 Web 2.0 apps into the virtual office

Gili over on Connected Internet (one of my fav sites for new and opinion, btw) has picked the top 5 Web 2.0 apps for the enterprise. They are:

Zoho office
Google Apps

I haven’t tried Salesforce.com or Zoho yet (though I keep meaning to), they rest I have tried and I can recommend them without hesitation. I […]

Just get it done, get it done fast, repeat as needed

Have lots to get done? Spinning your wheels? According to Web Worker Daily this is the formula and steps:
1. Keep it together.
2. Don’t stop.
3. Have a plan.
4. Get it going.
5. Push past roadblocks.
For myself, I need to just knuckle down and push forward to get things done. Sometimes just getting a snack, […]

iGTD-GTD app for the Mac

Saw this app this week (maybe last?) for GTD on the Mac:
It seems there’s more Getting Things Done inspired software packages out there than there are Flash games littering the web. It’s understandable; GTD has become the geek mantra for productivity, and finding the right tool to suit your GTD needs is like searching for […]

Can dictation software help focus and stop multitasking-and get more done?

Suw Charman wrote on Corante earlier this month that multitasking is as bad as procrastination.  Essentially we really all know we can’t truly multitask…
I’m not sure that this is really new news, though. Who, deep down, hasn’t pretty much known that multi-tasking is a con? We’ve known for years about the state of flow, where […]

EverNote 2.0 and Evernote Outlook Extension Beta Released

I’ve been testing EverNote 2 beta for some time now, just a little while ago (last week I think), I got a ping that EverNote 2 was final and I should download the new version (actually throughout the beta period I received notices to update, which I very much appreciated).  Here a portion of the […]

Think these tips will help you clear your inbox?

Some tips I found from Web Worker Daily on clearing your inbox:
1) Abandon crazy filing systems in favor of five folders: -Archive-, -Some Day-, @Computer, @Reply, and Waiting (I use the hyphens to get an alphabetical heirarchy that I like).
2) Parse your Inbox one email at a time.
3) Delete useless email.
4) Any email that describes […]

ClearContext updates their Vista widget and it is now a powerful GTD tool

You know I love ClearContext for Outlook.  The colour coding, the prioritization, the ability to just file messages with a click, and filing sent messages with a topic, all these things let me really manage my e-mail.  A while ago Brad told me about the Vista gadget for CC and Outlook 2007.  I’ve been trying […]

Cozi, family software that has office applications too

I saw Cozi on Download squad this week:
Through Cozi users can access their family calendar, schedules, and notes information that are stored in the family’s personal system, even when they are on the go. Reminders can be sent out and accessed by any PC or mobile phone you choose. This sounds like the ultimate family […]
