2009 is ending and I am trying to figure out where I want to hangout for 2010. …. anyways …. while in 2009 I have came across a multitude of desktop applications and web services which have helped me with my business.
The goal for me in 2010 is to be better organized and to be more productive. Living and working out of my house does get me unfocused most of the time and I need to stop this. I have found some things to work for me and it def has helped. So lets get started, I will start with Desktop applications and web services.
Doomi is an Adobe Air application which is really good cause it post up your to do list. Which you can check off and add new ones on the spot. I use this all the time if something comes to mind which I need to do I just type it up in Doomi. Once I have completed it I just simply check it off and its done.
The feeling of just completing a task keep you motivated to get everything else done on your list.
Mindomo is another great adobe air application because it lets you create mind maps. If you have an idea for a project, you want to brainstorm about it and make sure you have it planned out right to the minor details.
It allows you to let you think vividly because you see all the other aspects of your idea on the table. The mind map also helps me with my campaigns or my to do list.
Evernote is a universal system which enables you to use it on your iphone, the web, and your desktop. It lets you capture your notes, audio notes, and pictures.
The best part is it syncs with your iPhone so you will also be carrying your notes with you wherever you are. The fact that is can sync with your desktop and iphone makes life more mobile and easier.
Now onto the web services, which I think will help you with your online organization…
DropBox is one of my favorite web services. It gives you an online hardrive and syncs everything up with all your PC whether it is a mac or pc. The best feature I like is again the syncing with the iPhone and multiple PCs.
DropBox is free, they give you a 250mb online storage, but you can also get an upgrade if you want.
Again I like the syncing of files between platforms.
These are some of the things that keep me focus and help me stay on track. With 2010 just around the corner, I have to setup more stern goals and keep focus. With these apps helping me I am definitely going to have a more focus year.
Let me know of other services/desktop apps you use to keep yourself organized while working. I would like to know what you use and what your opinions are with the apps I have listed as well as your own.
