In August, I’m looking forward to teaching a 4-week Infopeople course called Effective Time Management for Busy Librarians. We’ll cover techniques and explore tools for managing your time, increasing your productivity, and collaborating with others.
In the course I share some of my favorite tools for time and task management, including Toggl, Evernote, and Tomighty.
- Toggl is a tool that can help you track your time. Want to know how much time you’re spending on various projects? Toggl can help.
- Evernote is a popular and flexible tool that people use in different ways. I use it for to-do lists that are automatically synced between the different devices I use.
- You’re probably familiar with kitchen timers that look like a tomato. The Pomodoro technique uses this concept to help people increase their focus and manage their time. Tomighty is a desktop timer that can be used to implement the Pomodoro technique. It’s simple yet surprisingly effective.
What tools do you use for time and task management? Please share your suggestions!
