Which Productivity Tool is Best for You as a Business Traveler?
Make the most of your time away from home with tools and apps designed with you in
Tools of all types exist to increase efficiency, streamline tasks, and give you better
control of your schedule no matter how busy it is. If you haven’t had the opportunity to
explore the timesaving tools available for business travelers, now is the time to do so.
You’ll be amazed at how quickly and effortlessly things get done when you’re well-
equipped with the right software, apps, and processes.
Here are some of the productivity tools you have to choose from:
- The Pomodoro Technique. Any kitchen timer, stopwatch, or timing app will do.
The idea behind the Pomodoro Technique is to pick a task, work on it
uninterrupted for twenty-five minutes, take a short break, and set the timer again
until the task is complete. It emphasizes the importance of single-tasking versus
multitasking. It also allows you to stretch, get a drink of water, or take a short
walk before starting the entire process again.
- Virtual Calendar Software. It doesn’t matter which system works best for you. It
only matters that you’re able to sync your calendar across all of your devices.
That way, you’re able to refer to your schedule no matter where you are and how
you’re accessing the information (by phone, tablet or computer). You can update
your calendar in real-time and avoid wasting precious time writing entries into an
analog version of a planner.
- IFTTT. Standing for “If This, Than That,” this free option helps your apps and
devices work together seamlessly. It’s essentially a huge timesaver because it
allows you to automate things that you ordinarily do manually such as update
social media posts, send birthday greetings to work colleagues, and use your
smart speaker to update your virtual calendar for you.
