Rock your email — 4 Gmail extensions to supercharge your workflow

Rock your email — 4 Gmail extensions to supercharge your workflow | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

One of the most productive things you can do for your business is set up your workflow processes.


Conversations, files, images, tasks, plans and contacts ALL stem from email, so it makes sense to make email your starting point for staying organized, and creating a workflow that makes sense to you.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

There was a time when I used Eudora to organize my workflow.  Now I use Gmail.  I've let the folders go, and to some extent filters too. I remain confident I can find what I want by simply searching my archive of email from the past five years.


The tools recommended in this article are attractive and promise some time management benefits.

The Only Way to Get Important Things Done

The Only Way to Get Important Things Done | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

"The proper role for your pre-frontal cortex is to decide what behavior you want to change, design the ritual you'll undertake, and then get out of the way. "It is a profoundly erroneous truism that we should cultivate the habit of thinking of what we are doing," the philosopher A.N. Whitehead explained back in 1911. "The precise opposite is the case. Civilization advances by extending the number of operations we can perform without thinking about them.

 

Indeed many great performers aren't even consciously aware that's what they've done. They've built their rituals intuitively."


Via Howard Rheingold
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I like the idea of time management via ritual put forth by the author.

오늘은 운동을 몇시에 하고 몇시간을 자는걸 매일 결정하고 바꾸는 것보다 자기의 기준을 만들어놓고 거기에 자연스럽게 살아가는게 훨씬 스트레스를 덜받는다고 하네요~ 예를 들면, 하루 8시간자기, 매일 일어나자마자 운동하기 등등. 한번 시도해보는건 어떨까요??

"It is a profoundly erroneous truism that we should cultivate the habit of thinking of what we are doing" -- this resonates with user experience design -- we talked tonight about the need for the interface to be transparent, in the background, so that it doesn't interfere with whatever you're trying to do.

In a quick, informative video, ASAP Science explains the complex balance of expectations and rewards that makes slacking off so addictive. The sooner we expect a reward, the more we value it -- making an immediate payoff (surfing Facebook!) more exciting than a future payoff (acing a test!). Luckily, the video has some practical tips for avoiding this trap.

What Successful People Do With The First Hour Of Their Work Day

What Successful People Do With The First Hour Of Their Work Day | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Remember when you used to have a period at the beginning of every day to think about your schedule, catch up with friends, maybe knock out a few tasks? It was called home room, and it went away after high school.


How much does the first hour of every day matter? As it turns out, a lot. It can be the hour you see everything clearly, get one real thing done, and focus on the human side of work rather than your task list.

What Tina Fey Taught Me About Time Management | TalentZoo.com | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Good insights and real world, practical advice on time management. Better news...you don't have to read any books, purchase an expensive "System" or attend any $2500 seminars to do it.

 

Shorter version: prioritize and only worry about achieving "perfection" on the things that really count. On all the rest, go for 95% perfection.  (This is advice I need to take myself.)

 

TalentZoo.com: "Do you spend an hour on a five-minute job?
In addition to helping you get tasks done, deadlines also keep you from spending too much time on projects that should only take a few minutes. Replying to a meeting request, straightening your desk, or sorting through your home mail should take just a short time. It’s easy to get sidetracked and suddenly an hour has gone by with no tangible results."

Managing you time effectively  becomes a real challenge in a world full of all kinds of distractions.The uptake of digital media and the pervasiveness of the smart hand-held devices made some people forget about their real life and only live on the cloud. Think about how many times an email bip, a Facebook notification, or a Twitter tweet interrupted you in the middle of ,say, reading a book or working on an assignment.

"SYMPHONICAL helps you get 'er done with digital post-it note templates that help you organize, brainstorm, and analyze tasks, ideas, and discussions. The pre-made templates make it clear that Symphonical is targeting the business-minded but there are plenty of applications for the classroom and beyond. Planning a new unit with the teaching team? Try out the handy SWOT analysis template. Dare to let students create their own learning path? Create a fluid weekly lesson plan and make students collaborators. Better yet, give their parents read-only privileges! There's even a blank canvas that allows you to build templates for any rubri... uh row/column format that you can conceive. The icing on the cake however is the seamless integration with Google Hangouts-- every great collaboration should be full of smiling (or smirking) faces."

What does it take to be productive? It’s a question I often ask myself and to be honest I don’t have a great answer for it yet. One key discovery I’ve made over the past year or so is that I need to have great habits in place.

That’s why I’m working on a solid running routine and on a set wake-up time and sleep time. These things have been incredibly helpful for me and I know both Joel and Leo have discovered the same.

One other realization I had is that, as I now spend so much of my day working online, there are a heap of new apps being created all the time to help us all become more productive.

That’s why I thought of compiling a full list of 100 tools, tips and tricks for you to reflect a bit on your own productivity.

Of course, a sure fire way to fail might be to try and use all 100, which Joel pointed out to me when we discussed this post! So hopefully this can be a useful resource for you to dip in and out of, whenever you feel your productivity is in a slump.

The Power Hour: How to Beat Procrastination

The Power Hour: How to Beat Procrastination | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Curated by Beth Kanter

http://www.bethkanter.org


If you are content curator, it is fun and pleasurable to browse information on the web to find the good stuff.  But it could also be a way to procrastinate.    Here's a great tip on avoiding it - find a power hour - and devote one hour to an important task.


Questions:


Where in your life are you letting unnecessary “work” slow down your progress?
What actions take up the majority of your working day? Are these the things that will make you money or contribute to your goals?
How would turning one extra “working hour” per day into one “income-producing hour” change your income over the next month? Repeated consistently over the next year, what would that be worth to you?

I noted last year that workers waste a lot of time doing useless activities, like managing unwanted communications, and suggested that the cause of the problem, digital overload, was also the potential solution: social media. The ROI for social media in business is quite obvious: reducing wasted time. That’s how we can also find the time for networked learning.
