Do you lose endless hours with phone distractions and app notifications?
Meredith Wood, Business.com explains how you can turn your phone into your businesses’ swiss army knife. “There are endless apps out there designed to help you take charge of your schedule and workflow. If traditional paper to-do lists aren’t cutting it, Wunderlist is an app that allows you to prioritize tasks, set reminders and share your to-do list with others. It’s accessible from smartphones, laptops and Apple Watches, so you can stay on top of your tasks no matter where you are.
If you’re a small business owner who charges by the hour, an app such as Harvest can easily keep track of the time you spend on each task, making invoicing easy. Even if you don’t charge by time spent, Harvest allows you to track how much time every project takes, making you more aware and attuned to your day.
When it comes to managing overall workflow, Trello is a great resource. You can create boards for each project and set up step-by-step pipelines to send them through, allowing you to track tasks from beginning to completion. It’s also a great tool for collaboration, as you can track your team’s progress and efficiency as well.”
