In an age where web applications evolved from great ideas to become essential productivity tools, only slackers will not find it easy to get things done.
Let me tell you a story.
I almost couldn’t believe what had happened to me the other time when my computer suddenly stopped coming on (not like I expected it to literally inform me though). But it was devastating as I couldn’t work on client’s projects that needed immediate attention.
I’m sure you can imagine how I felt, but salt was even added to my injury when I remembered all the important files I had lost, honestly, I felt weaker than weak. And that’s the day I realized I needed to take some things more seriously.
It took about 4 weeks before I could retrieve some of my important data, but I pulled it off even though I lost some files that resulted in losing a particular opportunity I had long worked hard for. Today, I am smarter because I am taking advantage of web applications to improve my productivity. And the good news is that you too can.
- Have a specific problem you want to solve or a difficult thing you want to do more efficiently. (Don’t wait for circumstance to teach you like me)
- Research, ask around and Google some more.
Trust me, if you take these actions stated above, you can never go wrong with improving your productivity, thanks to technology.
However, let me share with you 5 web applications I find amazing for efficiency and productivity.
