Last year as a community we built a master listing of productivity tools and information about those tools. I know the list has gotten stale and needs updating. If I clean it up and repost it here, would there be any interest in helping me update the information by checking out the various tools and adding new ones?

Do you have a hard time saying no?
In the common wisdom of productivity circles there is a mantra the best way to get control of your activities and workload is to start saying no. Sounds easy right? Just say no and then whatever that item is isn't on your list. Just say no and you've avoided all that work. Just say no and you take control of your life. Just say no and unicorns show up with boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts that help you lose weight. (Ok, maybe not the la...

I don't think there needs to be group activity to have use for this app. I have asked the people behind Meadow to post images of the user interface via twitter. Perhaps they will give it to us soon. #web

As part of moving my writing workflow to OneNote I needed to ideate a solution around creation of new draft articles in a consistent and efficient manner. In plain English...I needed a template. Templatizing work in OneNote using the desktop application is an easy enough process with some powerful functionality built in just for this reason. Unfortunately said functionality doesn't carry over to the universal and mobile versions. W...

You can't remember everything so why are you even trying?
During every day of our lives we're bombarded with things to remember. People ask us to do things, get things, be places, and follow up on things. Most commonly based on our educational backgrounds, we've come to the conclusion that we need to remember everything. Things need to be stored in our heads for immediate recall at a moments' notice and if we fail in this regard we're failing as people. We spend our time in school developi...

I've been working with OneNote to improve my writing workflow. Here's how it started...

Getting into the habit of frequent writing is harder than it sounded at first. I thought, "Hey I can just sit down and crank something out, schedule it to post, and I'll be well on my way." After all, if I can write as easily as I can talk about things, this should be a breeze. Reality came up, slapped me in the back of the head and looked at me with a proper facepalm. It's not that easy...it never was

Very interesting, +Art Gelwicks! My setup is Trello + Quip. This is how I try to be productive: all my compositions are written on Quip. At the same time, I have a Board "Writing" on Trello, and there are the kanban-style lists "Draft / Editing / Completed". Inside this lists I create a card corresponding to each text I started on Quip. Inside these cards I can use Trello's checklists with details I must work on, upload images or even use tags to organize all the compositions according to their literary genders / themes.
