Self tracking has had a huge impact on my productivity practice.  Here is how it all started... http://www.bobstanke.com/the-quantified-life/002
My obsession, er... I mean interest, in self tracking started back in 1998, when I was a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire.  What started as a simple class assignment has turned into a 17-year journey of quantifying my life. In this week's episode of "The Quantified Life", I tell the story about how my tracking journey started and where I am with it now.  It is a unique story, and little did I know back in 1998 th...

Proofreading your own work is HARD. You've already got a tool to make it a lot easier, but you may not have thought to use it...
Everybody writes. Whether it's an email to a friend, your resume, a sales proposal, website copy or the next best-selling book, readers expect clear and error

Thanks +Julie Wills. It looks like there are a number of text to speech extensions in the Chrome web store too +Simon Thomson. I can't make any recommendations but it looks like you have some options to try out.

5 Things About Working with a Virtual Assistant - Out of the Office Virtual Assistance

It's hard to believe that I've been a VA for almost 10 years. I love what I do and adore my clients. ♥ Having said that, there's a lot of folks out there who don't know what VAs can do, what we are (I swear, we're not all crazy cat-lady introverts .. that's just me), and how much more efficient a small business can run when you delegate and outsource the tasks that don't earn you revenue, or suck the life out of your and your business, or aren't an effective use of your time.

If you're curious (c'mon .. you know you want to peek) into how to work with a virtual partner, have a read of today's blog post.

#virtualassistant   #outsourcing   #delegation   #oofva  
Take a look at your to-do list, are there tasks on there that are taking away the time you should be using on your business? If so, it’s probably time to start looking for a virtual assistant. A vi...

Yes +Julie Wills, iOS only for now. Seems to be lots of demand for an Android version.

+Anita Neville I haven't had any real problems with uploads to Evernote. Most of what I've scanned recently has been to email to other people though.

I've been relatively quiet on G+ (and social media in general) since the start of my new year on February 2nd. This short video - less than three minutes long - gives some reasons why.

Do you prefer pen and paper over digital systems for capturing ideas and actions? I've tried to go all digital a few times but it's hard to beat the speed and simplicity of the more traditional approach. But I didn't want to sacrifice the advantages of digital systems for storage and search.

I've tweaked and refined an approach over the last 6 years that works well for me. Some of my colleagues have also found value in this approach, so I've finally written it up in an ebook. "Supercharged Notes" discusses how to:
* stop dropping the ball on actions you're responsible for
* reduce the need to retype handwritten notes
* easily spot action items amongst other notes
* quickly find entries using both paper and digital systems
* painlessly move notes into digital tools so you can find and retrieve information of longer-term value

You can download a free copy by subscribing to my blog. If you sign up I'd love to hear your feedback about the approach.
