As an entrepreneur time management can be very difficult but also critical to make sure you are prioritizing your tasks and being effective. There are many free online time management tools that can help you manage your time, here are our favorites.
1. Calendar – Gmail
Using a calendar to block out your time is a great way to make sure you are getting the most important tasks done. Often our days can be full of small, distracting tasks and we feel busy but don’t get anything important done. We call this busywork, but really what we want to work on is important work. By putting these important tasks into your calendar, it helps to make sure that you get the important work completed and do not get distracted by small tasks. A great, free online calendar is gmail. Go to Gmail and sign up or login, then click on the icon in the corner and you will see your calendar. If you are busy, using a calendar diligently will help you use your time much more productively.
2. Task List – Todoist
At the Digital Resource Center, we love this app, which can be used on both phones and computers. It’s very easy to use, you can create projects or categories to organize your tasks, and put dates on each task. Using this in combination with a calendar will help you make sure you not only get your important tasks completed but you don’t forget what you have to do. We even use todoist for our shopping lists!
3. Focus – Forest
Forest is a unique app that helps you keep focused, it is very simple, click on the tree, and the longer you focus and don’t get distracted by Facebook, and messaging apps the bigger the tree grows. This one best app in 2018 and 2019, it’s a fantastic tool to help you stay focused during important tasks.
Using these 3 apps together can you help you become a superstar in productivity and time management. Becoming more productive can help you feel more relaxed, reduce anxiety and give you more time for your family. Let us know your favorite tools!
