It may still feel like summer (is this heat necessary?), but school is officially back in session. The start of a school year means many things: a fresh start, brand new school supplies, new classmates, and learning how to balance a crazy schedule all over again. We’re sure you understand the importance of starting the year off on the right foot. Yes, you can always change your habits midway through the semester or year, but why wait to get organized?
Sightseeing may have previously been an exclusive luxury, but times have changed. Today anyone can become a global traveler. With the help of flight comparison websites and endless options of places to stay, there is a new travelling trend that is set to encourage our adventures.
Perhaps you have embarked on your next great vacation – before you go, ask yourself, “Am I prepared to be able to fully enjoy this trip?”
Today, we’re thrilled to announce a new partnership that makes email-to-task forwarding a breeze. This new integration allows users of Any.Do and SaneBox to automatically create tasks when you receive emails from designated senders.
A new year brings new opportunities for a fresh start. At the start of every year, we set resolutions for ourselves but somehow we never feel completely accomplished by the end. Think of 2016 as your chance to change that – 365 unwritten days await you to start the New Year on the right foot. We’ve come up with a helpful list of tips to make productivity and your New Year’s resolutions more achievable than ever.
Why choose a braver life? Because in all of the extensive research and work we’ve done on productivity, we’ve learned that giant “pie in the sky” life goals are the true equalizer among people. No matter how high up the corporate ladder or early into a career you are, everybody has a huge (and often secret) dream.
You’re not moving towards it yet because you’re holding yourself back, and you need a good dose of bravery to help you get there. But not the kind of risky head-dive you may be thinking.
All you need is a simple to-do list hack to help jumpstart the process.
There’s a fire in all of us to do things differently. It’s human to want to stake your claim in the world, and even though the romanticized image of today’s hard-driving yet visionary 20-something entrepreneur is all around us, true entrepreneurial spirit is hidden in the day-to-day life that many of us take for granted.
Our mission celebrates the independent spirit that moves things forward, but make no mistake, a real leader takes the small, seemingly boring steps that lead to great things, no matter their age or place in the world.
Think about your productivity levels throughout the day. Chances are you’re like me – you have a good idea of when you’re more likely to get stuff done, and when to avoid complex tasks.
But if you’ve ever had a day where you’ve felt completely optimistic about your to-do list in the morning, yet were blindsided at the end of the day when you got nothing done, you likely dealt with something called Ego Depletion.
How many ideas do you have on your list of side projects you’d like to build someday? My list has 25 items on it right now. They range from courses to books to software projects, but 25 seems conservative to me. I bet you’d have more than that if you sat down and counted them all out.
It’s not a bad thing to want to work on side projects. Craigslist started as a side project. So did Basecamp. So did Instapaper. Look at where they are now. Side projects can be the starting point for building a whole company.
We’ve all been productivity posers at one time or another. You may have fallen off the wagon or never truly realized your potential to get things done, but nobody is running at full capacity all the time. There are countless tips and hacks for becoming your better self (tip: try our Productivity Style Quiz for a personalized recommendation), but once in a while a trusted friend gives you the perfect insight to help you get your life in order. That’s what this post is all about.
