How software can help you become more productive
Technology is often seen as a distraction to many people in everyday life – the incessant pinging of notifications, calls, and emails, these all come through to people multiple times a day and take their attention away from the task at hand.
However, technology isn’t going to go anywhere. It has become so ingrained in our everyday life that it’s important that you make it work for you – as opposed to it becoming a hinderance to your life.
If you feel as though you’re suspectable to a technology-fuelled short attention span, then here are a few ways you can take control of the situation – all through using software.
1) Lists, schedules, calendars
Many people are familiar with web-based productivity systems such as Trello and Monday, these online applications allow the user to create boards or assignments to help keep tabs on their virtual to-do lists.
These are especially good for those who are new to the world of online scheduling, as their easy interfaces mean that it is a simple transition away from pen and paper.
Alongside this, online calendars have also taken storm. With packages from Google and Apple being stored on your smart phone, scheduling and organising has been made quick and easy.
The internet is a wonderful place – wide and expansive, full of the weird and wonderful. However, due to this, it can be easy to fall down an internet rabbit hole. From Facebook, Youtube, and online games, it’s not hard for your attention to waver.
That’s why internet plug-ins that limit the certain amount of time you can spend on a website are a great way to regulate where and how you spend your day; StayFocusd and Limit are two examples of this.
3) Last but not least
And of course, if these tactics don’t work for you then maybe it’s time to try something new altogether.
That’s where we come in. At Rossoft, we specifically involve ourselves in the creation of bespoke software. And while we typically take on a whole host of projects, one of our integral aims is to boost efficiency within the workplace.
We do this by creating bespoke software based around the needs of your team and company. One of the most popular products requested is a system that transitions manual tasks to automated.
While this may seem small, sometimes it’s the little things that make the most difference.
