As part of the Life Well Lived Getting Organized panel, I was asked What are your favorite resources (Products, Apps, Books, Websites, etc.) to help you get organized?
Because most of my life is now digital – whether I’m paying bills, scheduling life, or working in my home office – I rely heavily on three simple tools:
- My iPhone You can bet that no matter where I am, my iPhone is close by. From my iPhone (and various apps on it) I can access all of my contacts, my calendar, my files, my social media accounts, my blog and whatever else I need to organize work or play.
- Dropbox I used Dropbox to store all of my digital files so I can have access to them anywhere I have an Internet connection. I can even view files on my phone using the Dropbox iPhone app. Everything is synced to my computer and iPad and super easy to share with anyone I might be collaborating with. No need for emailing or wondering what version of a file is the right one!
- Evernote This handy tool has helped me organize personal to do lists, blog post ideas and meeting notes on the fly. I use the iPhone and iPad apps fairly frequently when I’m not at home. Once I’m home, my notes are synced and waiting for me on my computer. Evernote saves me a ton of time and is much more efficient (and eco-friendly) than a pen and paper!
How do you manage to stay organized? I’m always open to new tips and tricks!
You can head on over BlogHer and read 35 Resources to Help You Get Organized for even more tips and join the conversation. (I see a few on there that I’m definitely going to try out!)
