Time is money. Time is precious. Time is everything. Most importantly, it’s at a premium now more than ever. While our modern society has made life simpler in some regards, we’re also flooded with information and more things to do than perhaps ever before. Fortunately, there’s always somebody thinking about how to make things better, and new tools are always coming out. Here are four tools that will help you get your to-do list taken care of and save you some time.
1. SPACE App
Guess what! You use your phone too much. One of the most common complaints regarding modern society is everyone’s addiction to their smartphone. Not only is it ruining peoples’ abilities to interact face-to-face, it also takes up a LOT of time. The SPACE app is designed to help you break your addiction to your phone and save time that could be spent on more useful things.
The app offers a program specific to your habits and personality and allows you to set goals regarding your smart phone usage. It also tracks your phone usage and uses notifications to remind you that you’re using your phone too much. Both iOS and Android users can download it and start saving time.
If you’re a business owner looking for freelancers or if you’re a freelancer looking for work, you’re familiar with how difficult it can be to lock down a good project. Upwork is a service that connects freelancers in a wide variety of fields with individuals looking for projects to get done.
Freelancers can build their profile and portfolio all within the website, and business owners can see reviews of individual freelancers as they submit proposals. It cuts out time for both the freelancer and business owner and can get projects done quicker and better. I personally used Upwork to lock down my first freelance gig while I was still in college, and it made the whole process very smooth. You can access Upwork either online or through their app and get work done.
Meeting people can be exhausting, particularly at events or conventions where you want to take down someone’s information for a future connection. To make it quick and simple, Humin does the work for you. All you have to do is add their email address and Humin will get their name and photo from social media. You can even add a note about something you remember from your conversation, and later you can reference their contact from searching that note.
This allows you to quickly get in touch with those important connections for your work or otherwise instead of scrambling to remember their name to reach out to them.
4. A notebook
Anticlimactic? Maybe not. The power of writing things down on paper is very underrated, it’s actually the best tip one of our business experts here at Nav has every received. By having an organized notebook and taking the time to write down ideas or important details of life, you’re more likely to retain the information and get things done.
If a notebook just isn’t your style, a pad of sticky notes can still work wonders. By taking a moment to write it down, you can save yourself hours down the line.
