7 Online Productivity Tools: Never Waste Your Time Again

7 Online Productivity Tools: Never Waste Your Time Again

These Online Productivity Tools Make Things Easy (Trust Me)

Indeed, there are copious components creating the perfect, productive life. But computerised, online productivity tools are the most fun for increasing your productivity.

Crazy computer geek using too many monitors

You don’t need 15 monitors to be productive. All it takes is some quality productivity tools!

Not to mention, these fancy, electronic techniques—once mastered—make productivity a breeze.

(That being said, the effort still needs to ultimately come from you. Techniques such as the shortly following online productivity tools will only make things easier.)

Well-built systems can give you the motivation to be productive, without a doubt.

Likewise, poorly-built systems, or—even worse—a lack thereof, brews up the overwhelming enemy of productivity: procrastination.

Not knowing what to do next encourages idleness. By contrast, a detailed, clear, and concise plan keeps you on track (provided the absence of distractions.)

My personal organisation/productivity system relies on a large number of what I’ll refer to as “online productivity tools”.

The reason for this is that they provide a system for me to dump and organise information effectively. In addition to that, they use the cloud, putting the Internet to constructive use.

Accordingly, I am able to access information stored on said online productivity tools from basically anywhere. This certainly helps when I’m using two devices simultaneously.

Ignorance and Confidence: How to Gain from Them

Ignorance and Confidence: How to Gain from Them

Firstly:  Ignorance is Not Bliss? Lies!

In this article, we will go into the depths of the secrets of ignorance and confidence—could there be a link? However, there’s one deal-breaking problem; there seems to be a plague bringing terror to the streets of our clean world…

This plague brings winds so rough that innocent people are consumed by tornados of misconceptions. In other words, there is a surplus population of those who perceive ignorance negatively. And where is their evidence exactly?

Cherry-Picking

The evidence is biased, hence your conclusion is invalid.

Curiously, albeit not surprisingly, people seemingly cherry-pick certain situations which support their ideas. These scenarios, at first, appear to be convincing explanations for the deniers of the truth. Then these people, rather strikingly, draw the unjustified conclusion that ignorance is deplorable.

However, this is an extremely surface-level peek at the beautiful concept of ignorance. The only reason it’s viewed grudgingly is that society has learned the poisonous resentment of the unknown truth.

So, in order to get the most out of this article, you must initially open your mind up to the opportunities you’ve already denied yourself. As a matter of fact, our beliefs are poisonous, since they prevent us from—in many ways—progressing.

Next, having cleared that up and shoving it down the drain, why could ignorance possibly be bliss?

Programming Benefits: Should You Join in on The Fun?

Programming Benefits: Should You Join in on The Fun?

Why You Should Care About the Computer Programming Benefits

Hacker

That hacker is up to no good…

When you hear the words “computer programming” or “coding”, what comes to mind? Is it a mad hacker sitting in his mother’s dimly-lit basement, typing away on a laptop screen consumed by vivid green characters on a deadly black background? Or perhaps you envision a team of computer professionals behind approximately eighty 700-inch displays.

Code

This is really scary stuff…

On the less extreme side of things, you might imagine a computer hobbyist programming a miniature robotic car. Innocently or, rather, maliciously—that choice is up to you.

No matter how you currently perceive computer programming, you must accept one fundamental truth: it is a broad field of many sports.

For this reason, you could never learn to programme and subsequently know how to do absolutely everything; there are a multitude of programming languages as well as platforms on which you develop software, algorithms, and whatnot. However, to keep this simple, we won’t delve too deep into the programming intricacies.

Instead, we will explore the programming benefits—and how you can benefit from programming as a computer enthusiast.

But don’t be mistaken. The programming benefits don’t necessarily require tireless days of continuous, laborious learning; conversely, depending on what your goal is, you might not need to learn much to do a lot.

Also, it’s—fortunately—not exceptionally difficult to get started with programming. This is because all you really need is a computer, some software, and some quality learning resources. Never, therefore, believe that you can never take advantage of the benefits of programming.

As a matter of fact, it’s super-easy to get started with programming, and the programming benefits are well worth your struggles.

So, let’s see why programming is such a useful skill.

9 Self-Control and Discipline Strategies: Break Free Now!

9 Self-Control and Discipline Strategies: Break Free Now!

Living in Monotony and Progress-Deficiency?

Don’t be the victim of scarce self-control and discipline; there are ways to improve your willpower such that you finally get the motivation to make progress towards utopia. In this article, we will be discussing willpower tricks as well as busting poisonous, self-defeating myths.

In fact, everybody suffers from resistance. It’s those who can handle it, however, who are able to do what others can’t be bothered to do. This is the secret to succeeding in life, since there’s little competition when you’re willing to do what others aren’t.

Do What Others Will Not and Succeed

Whether or not it seems feasible to you, there are ways you can boost your self-control and discipline–provided you supply the determination. And if for any reason you don’t have that, remind yourself of the reasons for developing self-control and discipline. Here is my comprehensive motivational list of determination-reasoning:

  • Defeat the competition
  • Infinite bragging rights
  • Have the potential to be insanely successful, that is, more than anyone else
  • Never again feel guilty for underachieving
  • Dominate the world
  • Never again be laughed at for not having the self-control and discipline to be worth anything
  • Laugh at everybody else because they are not nearly as successful as you
  • Achieve anything
  • Pull ahead of the race
  • Become rich
  • Live in a surplus of satisfaction

You’ve now developed that burning desire to become too superior for your feeble friends. (Congratulations!) As such, you are abundantly ready to receive the real deal. But first, we must understand the underlying, all-powerful law of willpower.

How Organised is Your Life?Productivity Calendar

There should be no surprises when I say organisation is key when talking about how to be productive.

Despite many people accepting this statement to be true, some of us don’t act accordingly. Consequently, you’ll find an overabundance of disorganised people who simply don’t know how to be productive. Some people, however, are fine with a mediocre lifestyle, whilst others (like you, I assume) have wishful goals that they want to meet.

The problem we find is that, even though the desire to achieve remarkable things is present, there is a lack of motivation driving people through the necessary process—the path that leads to results. We mere mortals cower beneath the heavy, intimidating, ever-accumulating pile of work. Funny, why is this so if we know we must work to get results?

Admittedly, there is a tremendous deal of factors that contribute to a productive workflow. In this article, we will only be investigating a few of said factors, regardless of their equal importance. Still, you will be able to begin the transformation of your life with today’s article; after all, the best path is the one on which you take one step at a time.

How to Boost Your Career: 3 Remarkable Benefits of Blogging

How to Boost Your Career: 3 Remarkable Benefits of Blogging

Note: this is an aggregation of the key points that I’ve learnt from various sources. I cannot guarantee your success myself.

Should You Be Blogging?

There are many great benefits of blogging, but that can be said of many other practices, such as eating your vegetables. So, what is it that separates blogging from the rest, making it significant for you and less dismissible than your least favourite sport?

Blogging

While eating vegetables is hugely important for your health, blogging will revolutionise your life, steering you in the direction of success. In my opinion, anything that can bring you success should be treated with the same urgency as health and fitness campaigns.

The specific benefits of blogging will inevitably vary depending on you: your attitude, your chosen career path, your interests, your hobbies, the type of blog you choose to create, and so on. Despite this, there is no reason for you not to partake in blogging, since anyone can experience satisfying results.

In fact, given that you go about this the right way, starting a blog could be the most valuable thing you do for your career.
