Productivity tip of the week:
Saving time with keyboard shortcuts is one of the best ways to be more productive and get more done during the day. It may seem small but one less click here or there can really add up.
If you’re using Gmail, there’s a way that you can activate keyboard shortcuts that will save you a lot of time. Click the link above to learn how to enable the shorcuts and start using them. It’ll take some practice getting used to them but invest the time. Saving 5-10 minutes everday means saving between 1.5 – 3 hours every month!
Quote I’m thinking about:
Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow
Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend
Product/service I’m loving:
I’ve been using Feedly for the past year and I’ve found it incredibly useful in aggregating content that I’m interested in. You can add any news source or website to your feed and helps you see what’s new or trending through clean, simple interface.
It’s free to use for most of its basic functions and integrations with IFTTT, Buffer, etc. make it easy for you to automate posting/sharing of your favourite content.
