This guest post is brought to you by Francesca Geens, a UK based technology and productivity strategist, who loves nothing more than simplifying and untangling the way people do their work.
The problem with most articles on productivity is that they do one of two very annoying things.
They either list ten million ‘essential’ apps, or they prescribe the author’s own ‘system’.
Unfortunately, neither of these approaches results in the reader becoming more productive.
Because reading about and playing with a ton of new apps is one of the greatest productivity sucks around! You probably already have the right tools but you are not using them well.
The prescribed methodologies only work for a lucky few. Everyone else ends up more stressed because their new ‘system’ is not working for them. That’s because everyone is different.
Isn’t there another way?
How about we look at what successful independent consultants do to be their most productive and effective selves?
No list of essential tools coming up folks. And plenty of different approaches.
Read on to build your own productivity toolbox.
