Get Busy: Online Productivity Tools

More lemonade time.  That’s what I’m trying to give you today.  While summer may indeed conjure images of relaxed downtime spent sipping that classic combination of lemons and water, so pleasant in it’s understated simplicity, for most this only occurs once the day’s duties are done.  Having deduced this lemonade to productivity ratio, it seemed an increase in efficiency could directly result in more available sipping time.  Couple this with the fact that as we speak, giant companies are at battle in an effort to bring us more refined and useful tools to help better manage our time.  So, here we go…

1) Google Docs: share and collaborate with others on the same document

2) Google Calendar: allows for you to share your calendar with multiple other users

3) Lifehacker: website with daily tips and downloads for getting things done

4) Gliffy: create flow charts and diagrams

5) ConceptShare: online collaboration tool for visual design projects

6) bubbl: online brainstorming

7) backpack: secure document sharing and organization

8) toodledo: online (and iPhone) to-do list with special features for procrastinators

9) Dreaminder: free goal tracker

10) Good Ol’ Pen and Paper: okay, not an online tool, but worth the space they take up in your pocket to insure you remember flashes of inspiration, potential song titles and lyrics, etc.
