Nozbe is a tool that helps busy professionals and teams organize time and projects.  It’s inspired by David Allen’s GTD (Getting Things Done ®) methodology and designed in such a way that everyone can get organized quickly.  With their desktop and mobile web applications as well as Android, iPhone and iPad apps everyone in your team can access Nozbe on their favorite devices.  They claim to be the world-first to offer such flexibility.

This tools allows you and your team to communicate through tasks, which is better than using email, especially since email isn’t designed for collaboration. Communicating through actionable tasks allows you and your team get a lot more done and keeps everyone on the same page all of the time. Nozbe also allows you to incorporate the use of your favorite apps.  If you’re using Evernote for note-taking, syncing files in Dropbox or Box or using Google Calendar to plan your time, Nozbe works seamlessly with all of them and more are to be added.

Nozbe’s time-management and filtering you’ll know exactly what to do next and view your scheduled tasks in a calendar, which make it easy to never miss a deadline or appointment again. Tasks scheduled for today are being prioritized automatically to make sure you’ll get them done.  You can create as many projects for your tasks as you’d like and share them with people on your team and organize projects with labels like “work” or “home”. You can even design your productivity system to fit your personal and specific needs, which I personally think is a great bonus.  Your system has to be a fit for your personality or it’s not going to work for you.  Nozbe keeps you, your team and your projects in sync.  Get all the details here and see if it’s a fit for you.

 

 


During one of my internet searches I discovered Organisemee, a cloud based task management application.  Organisemee hit the scene in 2010 with the purpose of helping people manage tasks and to support on the “how to” get them done efficiently.

You enter tasks and any additional information you’d like into Organisemee and can structure your them by lists or projects. Tasks can be filtered by priority or by due date, so only tasks due before a certain date are shown, which allows you to focus on the task which needs to be executed next instead of looking at everything there is to do.  You can also define individual rankings of your tasks for every list or project and the application also lets you delegate tasks to others.

You can collaborate by finding your colleagues or VA in Organisemee and become contacts, then have the ability to delegate tasks to your contacts – and vice versa.  Tasks that are accepted become part of your lists, just like your own tasks.  You can also exchange messages assigned to a specific task, to align yourself with your contact.

Reminders definitely help keep things moving and Organisemee gives you the capability to set multiple reminders before and on the due date. You can receive reminders via eMail or as SMS on your mobile phone up to three times a day.

Since it’s internet based, you can access the application from anywhere with your PC, laptop or netbook.  There’s also a mobile version of the site so that you can manage things from the palm of your hand.  Currently the company is working on mobile phone apps for BlackBerry, Android and iPhone.  For more info on Organisemee, visit the website at www.organisemee.com or access the mobile site at m.organisemee.com

 


I know that one of the biggest time wasters for people is technology.  As much as things are created to help us, technology is a big hindrance for many people and can lead to a great amount of your time being wasted.  Using technology in a way that supports you can increase your productivity.

The day-to-day things that end up on your list can get out of control, so it’s important to keep it lean.   If your time management personality is a fit for a digital tool, there are electronic applications that you might want to consider to help you increase your productivity. It seems that every five minutes there’s a new app, so there are plenty of them out there which makes it hard to choose or find one that works for you.

One time management app that has received rave reviews is the task management app Wunderlist.  Here are a few facts about it:

 

  • Wunderlist is produced by a Berlin based company and passed over a million downloads in March 2011, and is now available on almost every platform—Windows, iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac.
  • it’s separate from the pack with its design, simplicity, and effectiveness.  Simple enough to use without trying, quickly enter your tasks and powerful enough to support you.  It’s not complicated to use, captures what you need to do right away and keeps important things front and center.
  • There’s a balance between its functionality and its features.  It gives you the ability to sort tasks into multiple lists, set due dates and “Star” particular tasks
