The big list of 100 tools, tips and tricks to work more efficiently online | The Buffer blog: productivity, life hacks, writing, user experience, customer happiness and business. | habits | Scoop.it

Posted on Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Written by Alyssa Aldersley

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.

 

Buffer is a blog about productivity, life hacks, writing, user experience, customer happiness and business.

Exploring Scientists' Working Timetable

Exploring Scientists' Working Timetable | habits | Scoop.it

In our previous study (Wang et al., 2012), we analyzed scientists' working timetable of 3 countries, using realtime downloading data of scientific literatures. In this paper, we make a through analysis about global scientists' working habits. Top 30 countries/territories from Europe, Asia, Australia, North America, Latin America and Africa are selected as representatives and analyzed in detail. Regional differences for scientists' working habits exists in different countries. Besides different working cultures, social factors could affect scientists' research activities and working patterns. Nevertheless, a common conclusion is that scientists today are often working overtime. Although scientists may feel engaged and fulfilled about their hard working, working too much still warns us to reconsider the work - life balance.

DejaView | Silodrome | The WS Sport Classic by Walt Siegl

DejaView | Silodrome | The WS Sport Classic by Walt Siegl | habits | Scoop.it

From a pure engineering standpoint, Walt Siegl is one of the top bike builders in the world today. Anyone who would argue against that statement is unworthy to ever sit in the saddle of a motorcycle.

The level of craftsmanship that goes into a bike like this one, the WS Sport Classic, is clearly evident. If you don’t think so, read on. The bike is essentially the prototype for a small scale production run and almost everything about the original Ducati Sport Classic has been replaced, rebuilt or re-thought. See that frame? It isn’t the original Ducati tubular steel, it’s a handmade chrome-moly chassis built in Walt’s workshop, the fuel tank and seat are all hand fabricated by Walt, the brakes are now 4-pot Brembos and those front forks are fully adjustable Showa’s. The rake angle was increased by half a degree from 24.0° to 24.5° and Walt added 39mm flatslide carbs on top of handbuilt manifolds.

Now you see what I mean by craftsmanship, this build was a hell of a lot more than a paint job and some mail order parts....more

Building a Blog: Lessons for Communicators | Hypertext

Building a Blog: Lessons for Communicators | Hypertext | habits | Scoop.it
The Text100 Sydney team recently launched a brand new design to its blog.

 

...Text100 Sydney team decided to move from our old blog to something new. We hired a web development team and gave them our specifications; they both created the new blog’s current design and offered to host it on their servers (an offer we gladly accepted). Since we were using WordPress on both our sites, importing all our posts and pages to the new design was only slightly more complex than a cut-and-paste job. No coding, no tinkering with firewalls, and no stress.


In 2002, creating a basic website took around four to five weeks and a fair amount of technical savvy. In 2012, you can set up a professional blog within a day, without any specialist technical knowledge. Even complex web portals like e-commerce sites are cheaper and faster to set up than ever before. And with more businesses investing in their social media and digital presence than ever before, having a solid website to tie everything together is a must.


I’ve built up a few habits on which I tend to rely when working on both personal and professional websites....
