10 Free Google Chrome Extensions That Will Send Your Productivity Level Flying
Productivity Tools: They are what they repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit. This is Aristotle cum myself.
Filling that database, sending emails, answering calls, and responding to people at the same time.
The most painful part is just when you think you’ve accomplished a lot after the day’s work, probably because you were busy multitasking, then a second look tells you that you actually didn’t do much.
The story could be same for your team. And you can imagine the losses at the end of the day, the month, or the year.
You need proper tools, and Google Chrome comes in handy with the right extensions to help you increase productivity. Let’s dig in.
1. Get Your Ass Back to Work
No matter how disciplined you are towards work, sometimes it just seems the word ‘trust’ wasn’t developed for human beings. We just can’t be trusted. And that is why the ‘Get Your Ass Back to Work’ chrome extension is here to shove your ass and tell you ‘hey’, get back to work.
In Short, GYABTW will annoyingly shut down any website that is wasting your time. Spend 15 seconds on Facebook, YouTube, or Instagram, and this extension will shut all your social media tabs.

2. The Gorgias Email Extension
If you do send emails, it means you will be engaged in repetitive work, one way or another.

Repetitive Emails? Create a template, access it anytime and begin responding to your clients, teams, or customers.
Your Starting Line? Do you always start your email with Hello? Add that to your template and anytime you press ‘H’ plus the TAB key, it will bring the “Hello” and insert the Name of the person you are sending the email to. Cool, right?

What do you do when you search and find a contact on a website? Look at it, type it into your phone, and start making your call.
