Productivity Tools

What productivity tools do you use?

For years I had used the Franklin Covey planner system. I attended their productivity courses and learned how to utilize their planner system. However, with the rise of technology, I slowly moved to devices. I struggled to find the right App. I tried Outlook, Apple ICal, Planner Plus, Nozbe, Evernote and many others. I like Planner Plus because it reminded me the most of the Franklin Covey planner system. I tried to find the one App that would do everything I needed perfectly. What I discovered was a new way to do the things I needed better.

What productivity tools do I use?

My top tool is Evernote. It’s like having a digital brain. I can put handwritten notes, information from websites I want to save, and collect research material. They have so many features. It does take the effort to learn a few tricks to customize notebooks and notes. Evernote was my primary go-to as I worked on my doctorate and completed it. I filed and took notes from my seminars in Evernote. I organized all my research in Evernote. I still like to use a paper notebook to take notes. I like the Moleskin notebooks. I have found them at Target, Costco, Barnes & Nobles, and Amazon. I have also ordered them directly from the Moleskin website.

I still use the Apple ICal for my calendar. I still like Planner Plus, but I’m not using it currently. I found Nozbe to be costly for my needs. I only use Outlook when I have too. There are many great Apps out there. Thank you to all the developers creating and improving Apps every day.
