Make Technology Work For You

mail-566337_640You may have seen my recent emails about email overwhelm and my course Take Back Your Inbox. I’m determined to help everyone reach inbox zero! Our email overwhelm is really just a symptom of our much bigger problem… technology.

There are so many apps out there designed to make your more productive, you could waste a whole week downloading all of them. Too much technology can be counterproductive. So how can you target the right apps for you? How do you figure out which emails count and which ones can go?  

Tonight I’m doing a teleseminar with ADHD expert and author Terry Matlen where I will be discussing some easy ways to use technology to be more productive. We will talk through a significant number of apps and how to use them throughout your day for maximum efficiency.  

What we will cover:

  • How to get out from the overwhelm of email
  • Ways to use technology to help you — apps that will make you more productive

If you’d be interested in joining us for the teleseminar click the link here. I’ll also be doing a Q&A at the end, so if there’s any burning questions you have, now’s your chance!

Questions to Ask Your Mother (or Father) Before It Is Too Late

Pretty much without fail — I call my mother every single day. I love checking in and seeing how her day was and filling her in on mine.  I realize not everyone does this — but I love the relationship I have with my mom.  If it’s one hour or one minute — we always check in with each other.  It’s very comforting.

I recently did a teleseminar with Meggin McIntosh and of course my mom was listening on the line.  She’s been my biggest cheerleader for every stage of my life and I’m fortunate to have her in my life.  Not everyone talks to their mother every day but as Meggin writes in this guest blog — there are some questions you should be sure to ask the next time you talk: Read more

If you’re a list maker like me — do your lists work for you or do they drive you crazy?  If they’re making you nuts — don’t give up…there are things you can do so your lists will make you more productive.

If you don’t make lists but would like to — I can show you how to do it effectively.  Having a well-written list is like having a road map to accomplish your goals.  It’s very important to be realistic and specific.

I’d like to help everyone learn how to better use lists to serve his or her life.  Making lists will help you become more efficient and focused in all areas of your life.  Whether it be grocery shopping, finishing projects or finding a new home — a list will help you accomplish your goals.

So I’m teaming up with Meggin McIntosh, Ph.D. — the “Ph.D. of Productivity” — for a teleseminar, January 12, 2012 at 6pm Eastern.  You can sign up here and join in on the call-in event. If you can’t make it at that time — sign up anyway and an MP3 of the call will be sent to you afterwards.

It’s a free event and you’ll learn:

  1. Why list making is essential to success in all areas of life – personal and professional.
  2. What kinds of lists (and yes, there are different kinds) need to be part of your Keeping-Chaos-at-Bay toolkit.
  3. Strategies for effective list making at home, at work, and just about anywhere.
  4. How to make various kinds of lists work for you.
  5. How to make difficult decisions using a list.
  6. Where to make your lists so they don’t get lost or unused (useful apps, websites, list paper, etc).

Hope you’ll join me for this exciting teleseminar!
