How To Revolutionize Your Desktop To Get Things Done

Today I wanted to share some of the productivity techniques I have used to quadruple my productivity over the past couple of months.

In fact to me the biggest roadblock to getting things done and reaching your goals is a poor organisation and goal setting process.

In this post I am going to share with you my best tools to increase productivity.

Watch the video above for the full story.

I have included all the tools I mentioned inside the video below.

Finally please let me know in the comments which tools and techniques you use to boost your own productivity.

  1. Thanks. I think it is really selfless when someone shares tools which have obviously made a real difference for them. I wish there was an all in one tool which pulled together so many of these productivity insights. My biggest issue is not using too many tools and still losing my place. Also the list writing is one that I struggle with because I could write a list of 50 items every day knowing full well that I havent a hope of getting a fraction of them completed.

    As an aside two of my productivity tools are a CRM system and designing processes flows into them for encounters with customers and mindmapping. I used to mindmap on paper before the software came along.

    Thanks again.

  2. Thanks for this post, it was really useful!

    I am using other tools that are alternatives to FocusBooster and Teuxdeux, but didn’t know about Goalscape, it’s really a gem!

  3. what is the sidebar tool you use. I don’t see the link on your list.
    BTW, I have found this very helpful. thank you.
    while you are responding, where did you get your screen saver background
    “focus man”.I love it…..
    Thanks again

  4. Hey Marcel,

    The sidebar tool I use is called YzDock (Ive added the link under the video) and the background I created it (ive also added a download in the resource box)

  5. Thanks, your sharing these tools is much appreciated!
    Especially for visually oriented people like me, the GoalScape tool – which I plan to start on right away. This can be an extremely important part of the full-wall whiteboard process I started using lately. Let me see if Mozilla does application or website shortcuts.

  6. Thank you Bertranddo, I never used these tools before, I know it will be a great help to me staying focus.

    Danielle
