How to Prioritize Your Day with Momentum Extension, Google tasks, and Google Notes

Manage tasks with a personal dashboard featuring to-do, notes, and lists.

For those who often forget what to do in a day, I list out three following recommended apps for work-life productivity: momentum extension, google tasks, and google notes; all of which are available on Google Chrome web store as well as other similar web browsers.

Productiveness increases the overall efficiency of an organization. When the efficiency of the organization increases, the production capacity of the company is utilized to the optimum level. Thus, all resources are used in an effective and efficient manner to get the best possible results. As is often indicated by business, the more products you make, the lower your overhead, and the higher your profits.
Enhanced production lowers the cost per unit of a product which in turn, results in lower prices for better quality, which enhances a business’ competitiveness in the market. In the current turbulent world, every organization faces stiff competition from their counterparts. Hence, lower prices as a result of enhanced production give an edge to businesses to sell products at more competitive prices. If the rates are competitive, the business is in a better position to attract more customers and make more sales. This is the primary motive of any business organization.
Increased production due to efficient utilization of organizational resources leads to a lower cost production resulting in better sales and profits. If the profits of an organization shoot up, it increases the confidence of investors in the organization. Moreover, the share value of the company increases. Due to this, the reputation and goodwill of the organization increases. — Six Sigma Online

Momentum Extension

When you open your web browser, wouldn’t it be nice to see beautiful photos and quote of the day? Momentum will first ask “What’s your name?”, you insert your name, and finish the setup. The app will also ask you to set a daily goal/focus/intention, keep track of tasks with to-do list, and see the weather and forecast. To put it simply, it’s a custom page designed for people who spend a lot of time in their browser opening new tabs. The extension works with Google’s Chrome, Firefox, and Apple’s Safari.

Google Tasks

Google Tasks is a free online service that helps manage your to-do lists. You can access Google Tasks via your Google account.

If you haven’t found a to-do list that works for you — particularly a free one — it’s worth giving Tasks a shot. Source: https://www.wired.com/story/google-tasks-app/
While Keep and Tasks may still share some overlapping functions, they deviate enough that it makes sense for them to live as distinct options. At least, for now. “Tasks is for to-do management. It is designed to help users manage lists of tasks and subtasks related to work, for example — emails to reply to, meetings to prepare for, and documents to review,” says Goerisch. “Keep is for note taking and quick capturing of ideas.” — Barret (Wired, 2018)

Google Keep

Google Keep is a note-taking service developed by Google (similar to Microsoft OneNote). Launched on March 20, 2013, Google Keep is available on the web, and has mobile apps for the Android and iOS mobile operating systems. Keep offers a variety of tools for taking notes, including text, lists, images, and audio. Users can set reminders, which are integrated with Google Now. Text from images can be extracted using optical character recognition, and voice recordings can be transcribed. The interface allows for a single-column view or a multi-column view. Notes can be color-coded, and labels can be applied for organization. Later updates have added functionality to pin notes, and to collaborate on notes with other Keep users in real-time.

Try Google Keep on the web at http://keep.google.com and on your Android phone by downloading the app at http://g.co/keep.

Lastly, using these apps serves as an additional tool for day-to-day priority and task management and helps one focus on being productive instead of busy. Bear in mind that proper planning and preparation prevents poor performance, and thereby the backbone of project success. Try it yourself and let see how it goes.
