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 […]

Toggl-free, web-based time tracking, worth a solid look

One of the banes of consultants is often time tracking.  Good time tracking software is hard to find, regardless of price, good, free time tracking software is nearly impossible to find.  Believe me, I’ve looked.
So whenever the words, “free” and “time-tracking” appear in a post title my ears perk up.  But when you mix “web-based” […]

Contracts Pimp Your Work?

One of the principles of contract workers is exactly that: the contract. The contract governs the relationship between the person, the project, and the company for the work being done.
Contracts, of course, are two-way streets when it comes to the relationship with the company paying your for the work. You can request what you want […]

Strategic Focus is a Real-Time Process

Have you noticed a heightened interest in business being compared to the military? Some pundits and executives offer implementation of strategies using military methodology, most famously at Home Depot (where being bought by another company is the current rumor).
Others use military to develop strategy with all of the associated “enemy” and “territory” jargon.

Sign up fast for the OnTime 2007 beta!

I caught the Scoble Show this morning where Robert interviewed the CEO of Axosoft (makers on OnTime bug tracking software).  OnTime was developed for developers by developers to help them roll out software on time (and assumedly on budget and with fewer bugs).  The background behind the app is interesting.  Robert and Hamid talk about […]

E-mail management, clearning your inbox? Well, I’m a re-convert thanks to ClearContextSo

I used to be obsessive about clearing out my inbox.  Once a week was my preferred practice, once a month if all else failed.  Then I just got sick of deciding where things went and I discovered desktop search clients that indexed my e-mail.  So I switched to no filing at all and just archiving […]

It takes more that a cool tool to GTD you have to learn how to use it

Glen over at LifeDev does it again.  I’m a huge fan of Basecamp and the other web-based apps by 37Signals.  Thing is I think, like many folks, I don’t begin to tap into their full potential, or even to use them to really help me in the whole GTD process.  Well, Glen got some advice […]
