Tools for productivity is our topic for today…


Natalie provides awesome information for online Apps that help an individual organize their personal AND business lives.

I don’t know how to turn this topic into an interesting post today?
(If trees are your thing – as they are mine – fast forward to the image if you’re bored already).

I currently don’t use any form of online organisation system, however after having a quick sticky beak at Evernote can see the benefits of having a #onestopshop so to speak.

I just had a thought!!
Maybe we will all move over to a more integrated online organisational system, as opposed to using the likes of Facebook?
Maybe this is the way of the future?

I have spoken to friends who feel that Facebook will be on the move out in the future, and there will be other online options people will move into.  I get it, but with Facebook as addictive as it is for our current generations, I am curious to see how the transition will occur.

Whilst I can see the benefits of an online organizational system, my thoughts lean to “oh another system to learn how to use”.  Sometimes I can be quite impatient and want to know how to use things IMMEDIATELY.  NOW!!!

Perhaps I’m a little old fashioned in my organisational systems?  I do enjoy a plain old paper diary where I can write in my tasks, appointments & ideas.  This worked really well for me in my previous job.  I would create tick boxes each day for my to do items, and just as simple, tick them off once they were complete.  If for whatever reason I was unable to complete them, they made it to the next day, or a day where I knew it would be completed.  BOOM – organized.

Again, perhaps this is a case, of not yet needing a full program for all of my items, and that when I do get moving into the creation aspect of my Podcasts, future e-books, Courses etc… I can see these tools as being helpful.

I thought part of the fun of being creative was having tactile items to engage & stimulate the right sided brain?  Putting them all into a Left sided brain format – does it remove the fun & enjoyment from these?  I dunno?  I’m not saying it does, just posing a question that arose for me thinking about it.

My current workspace – ie – the Dining Room table, is rich with my pens, papers, drawings, Vision Board images, Leonie Dawson Workbook… To take photos of it – and put it into an organised system??  Yup – I’m not so sure about that…  Come back and ask me again in 6 months time when I am too busy to deal with my table mess.  😉

If you’ve taken the time to read my post today – I thank you for your time.  I hope that you don’t feel like you lost 5 mins of your life…
If you do feel this way – I sincerely apologize, and in exchange I offer you this image of me sitting on one of the magnificient beauties laying within Cathedral Grove, British Colombia, Canada eh!

"I'm living my life inspired by spirit, practicing surrender and following my guidance in each moment..."
Sounds all very idealistic & luxury right? Nope. It takes courage, strength & trust. It's fueled by blood, sweat & a lot of tears.
If it was easy, the planet wouldn't be in this state. Trust your higher purpose & be in awe of life.
