7 Productivity Apps That Shave 10 Hours Off Your Work Week
Tools don’t matter. But if you use the right tools, your life can be a lot easier and better.
My general opinion about apps, tools, and resources is this: It doesn’t matter.
I say that because most people hide behind their apps. We’re always looking for the ONE app that will turn us into a productivity monster.
Or we believe that tools or other resources will help us do better work.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably a knowledge worker. And a knowledge worker’s primary weapon is her words.
I strongly believe that if you want to become a better communicator, it all starts on paper. Learn how to think and write well, and you will ultimately become better at speaking, sales, copywriting, programming, doing interviews, leading, etc.
The very words you use are EVERYTHING in how you conduct yourself. Especially in an increasingly digital world where people shy away from face-to-face contact.
And Grammarly is the best tool to help you with communicating. Most people think a grammar checker is only for writers.
But I mainly use Grammar’s browser extension for daily use. I use it for writing emails in Gmail, responding to comments, or any other site I have to write something.
I also edit my articles with Grammarly (they also have an MS Office add-on). It checks for passive voice, grammatical, spelling, and punctuation mistakes.
All in all, this app saves me about 30 minutes a day in sheer brainpower. With Grammarly, I can just focus on writing and communicating my message; they do the rest.
