Everyone is familiar with that old proverb, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” However, sometimes, when you are overwhelmed and on overdrive, there doesn’t seem to be any energy left to spare. In cases where you have too much to do and not enough time on your hands, it’s a very good thing that you live in the digital age because now there is an app for just about anything. Here are ways apps can help you work your way through the messes you find yourself in.
Hold that Thought!
How many times have you been thinking of something you want to do or say at a later time but when the time comes, you can’t for the life of you remember what it was you had in mind? Actually, there’s an app for that! Chances are you wouldn’t be without your smartphone, so why not try Google Keep? Simply follow the instructions for a voice-activated memo service that will hold that thought for you. Isn’t the digital age great so far?
When Is that Soccer Game Again?
When you are juggling a busy professional career and a family, there are times when you double (and even triple!) book yourself inadvertently. Sometimes, it’s simply a lack of communication and other times it’s a matter of not having anything handy to write a “Note to Self” on. Why not try a free printable calendar template from calendarcraze.com to place in a visible spot in the home? Family members can quickly jot down an important event for you to remember, which you can then transfer to your office calendar or notepad. Most people find the refrigerator works well because it is the one place everyone goes at one point or another throughout the day.
N Sync Your Day, but Not with Music
Ah, the days of Justin Timberlake, et al. No, not quite. One of the other common problems among busy professionals is being able to transfer schedules, notes, and data between devices. There is a great app for that too. Remember the Milk is a cool app that lets you create a “To Do” list and then sync that list between every device you own and use. Sync it with your office computer, your mobile phone, your laptop and even your tablet. Take dates off your printed Calendar Craze calendar that’s on your refrigerator and then sync them with all your devices so you really can’t forget those dates.
It’s amazing just how far technology has come in the past few years and now it even allows you to synchronize your home and office life as well. From being able to remotely control smart devices at home while you are at work to helping you organize your time for better productivity, there is an app for just about everything. When the going gets tough, the tough can now get going to the app store. Life can get less hectic and a whole lot easier if you know where to look.
