Productivity – I feel good when I have it and not quite so when I don’t. Being productive is such a positive in my day-to-day life. With numerous articles to write, four kids to care for, a husband to love, a home to enjoy and a very active social life, not being productive is not an option. Ideally, there would be 5 of me to do all the things that need doing. Since there is only one me and my husband works outside the home (thank God for banker’s hours, though), it’s just me and me alone. I rely on apps. That’s right; there’s an app for that. There’s an app for everything, but productivity apps are my favorite. I desperately need them to help motivate and inspire me, to keep me in line and to ensure that I’m able to do all that needs doing throughout the day. Since I’m a successfully productive person 99.9% of the time, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite apps that are guaranteed to boost your productivity and leave you feeling good. The best part is that we chose only those that are free of charge.
This is my favorite; I use this every single day because it allows me to quickly and easily add what needs doing, cross it off and organize it by category as well as date and order of importance.
This is an app that’s like a calendar that’s way cooler and more amazing than the calendar you are currently using. This means you’ll be able to accomplish a lot more and in an much more stylish manner.
It links with your apps and other things on your iPhone (such as email reminders to check into a flight) so that you are always on top of your game and able to see your schedule as it is best fit. You’ll love this amazing app.
This is sort of an all over the place kind of app that lets you keep track of everything in your life. The best part is that it’s something you can use on all your devices so you’re never out of the loop.
Sign up and let the app track your internet usage so that you can see how you waste your time. You can then block certain sites throughout the day so that you are more productive and less likely to waste time.
