Five Apps That Will Increase Your Productivity | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

The success of smartphones and tablets over the last five years or so has been helped in no small part by the huge number of apps available to users. These handy little add-ons make life easier; there are apps for grocery shopping, banking, social networks and pretty much anything you can think of.

 

The thing is, how many of these apps are actually productive? Do they enable you to perform your job better? Does it give you the ability to work on the move in a way that hasn’t been possible since, well, ever?

Take advantage of modern technology to increase your effectiveness in, and outside, the office.  Here’s five apps which have been proven to increase the productiveness of people at all levels of business.

How to be More Productive? Multitasking Paradox and Attention Deficit

How to be More Productive? Multitasking Paradox and Attention Deficit | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

 

What is one of the invaluable things today that everyone strives for to get from you? To my mind, it is your Attention..  Commercials aimed to get attention of consumers, governments – for voters, international authorities etc, businesses – for stakeholders etc..

“The more I allow myself to be seduced by distraction, the more distractible I become”.  Tony Schwartz, President and CEO of The Energy Project.

 

It is getting more and more difficult to grant longer attention to the issues or hobbies you’d prefer to do. Still we need somehow to cope to keep afloat. And moreover, we don’t need only to cope, but to time-manage, prioritise, and be on top of the follow-up.

 

Thus, we usually decide and/or are forced to multitask as a solution. Multitasking is a very well promoted skill as one that saves time and logically will lead to more productivity. However, the recent study by Harvard Business Review revealed directly the opposite, so-called ‘The Multitasking Paradox’.
