Be Thankful Technology Because it Can Make You More Efficient — 41 Comments

  1. This is a very good tip and one that I follow. But I’m still so old school on some things that I tend to feel more comfortable with my desktop over the laptop, tablet or phone.

  2. I like to think I’m old school when it comes to keeping my life organized. But I will say that my phone is my life saver. There are so many different apps that I use for different reasons and I love that all my questions can be answered at the push of a few buttons. 😉

  3. I agree with you there. I have a Kindle for reading and really enjoy reading with it, but nothing compares to the touch and smell of a paper book!

  4. That is true. The same thing is true with paper organizers. Perhaps it is good that the electronics can be password protected.

  5. I like being able to d real work anywhere. I am actually responding to you via my tablet while at my children’s tutor.

  6. The most most important part is to find a system that works for you and you seem to have done that.

  7. I am with you, I like the paper, but the convenience, cloud storage and light weight of the electronics have moved me past the paper.

  8. I love having my calendar on all my devices. That’s why I use Google Calendars that way it syncs with the Calendar programs on my Mac, PC, and iPhone.

  9. I have many of the same apps on all of my devices. It makes it so much easier for me to work no matter where I am. Technology definitely helps me be more efficient, but sometimes I get distracted with playing around with all the new apps.

  10. So true! But I still don’t want to let go of my pen,notebook, planner and calendar though. Electronics need juice and the hard copies are efficient if electronics are out of juice.

  11. I am so thankful for the technology I have, but I know I could be using it to work more efficiently. I just can’t seem to get out of the paper habit for a lot of things.

  12. I keep my calendar in Thunderbird and export it so I have it on my phone. I keep almost everything else in the Bento app, which I love.

  13. Yes, technology terrifically makes my life efficient as well as simpler. You nailed the reasons why. I am not tied up in my desk and all that paper stuffs. I love that we have choices now. Either we go with all that stereotype stuffs or with the technology. Awesome!

  14. For me technology is a great help for us, because it gives us the efficiency, but sometimes there are others who abuse the simplicity and would rather be on the computer or hook with technology rather than enjoying life without it.

  15. I used to repair computers for a living, you never realize how much you depend on technology until it breaks and your job/life come to a stop. I love technology, but do take breaks.

  16. I am not a gadget geek but I use mine with moderation because I know myself once I get addicted to doing something like games, I won’t get a lot of sleep. But the good side is, I do all my communication (wireless) on the phone, too.

  17. I need to continue working on this. My iPad has a lot of the same apps on it as what I access on my laptop (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc) but I should get a Word processing software for it. I also need to work on syncing my calendars.

  18. I’m better with paper, but planners are so dang pricey that I still with my paper wall calendar and outlook. I would love to be more efficient – Evernote saves my life all the time! And the kids have co-opted the iPad (also known as my Books!) so I grabbed a $9 kindle this week just to have my own reading device. What I’m really hoping is that I can have a smartphone by the end of the year, though!

  19. I have so many apps on my ipad it’s great to be able to carry it around and quickly catch up on some of the things I need to.

  20. I have been using Franklin Planner for Outlook since it first came out (more than 15 years ago). One list- tasks, notes, contacts, calendar, eMail. Oh, and my Outlook coordinates with our accounting and document management system. So…
    ONLY one touch! Ah…. the feeling of control. (Even though we’re not.)

  21. I love your post! As a time strategy visionary, I advocate efficiency – and utilizing technology is certainly one way to become more efficient. Though I have the same programs on my laptop, tablet, and phone, I find I certainly prefer using my laptop whenever possible. I like the size of the screen and the size of the keyboard when typing. I also still use a paper planner. I’m a tactile learner – and I just get something “more” out of concrete, written to-do lists and calendars. I know, my way is not for everyone, but being confident and comfortable with my system allows me to be efficient!

  22. I completely agree! It’s a plugged in world and it certainly has its advantages!

  23. I love being able to connect to my tablet and still be able to work on my blog. Before I had a tablet, I was stuck at the desk. Thankful for the new technology! Great post!

  24. I also have many of the same apps on all of my devices so I can get things done no matter what technology I’m using. But I find myself having to focus to be more efficient because it is so easy to get caught up playing!
