I was asked as a female business owner to share my favorite organization/productivity apps and why for an article in Oprah Magazine. I responded with:
Microsoft To-Do – to track all of my tasks both personal and business. Why? It is easy; I can set reminders, I can see the day, week or entire list, I can create multiple lists (great for projects), I can attach notes, documents or voice recordings to a task. It gives me the same satisfaction as a paper list that I can check off when I have completed a task. It gives me the option to show or not show the completed to-dos. I can print a list if I want a paper copy.
TimeTimer – to keep me focused on completing a task in a given amount of time. It shows the time passing which motivates me to stay focused on the task.
Evernote – to keep all the bits and bites of information I collect in one place that are searchable. Replaces paper files of random data and I can access the information on the go. Also great for keeping project information together digitally.
I’m thrilled to learn that I was quoted in the article for two of the apps I shared; Wunderlist and Time Timer. Although, Evernote was included too as shared by another contributor. You can read the article on OprahMagazine.com.
