Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 1st August 2010

I am currently in Italy enjoying the sun and this post has been written before I left.

I am currently sat here waiting for OmniFocus for the iPad to be approved in the App store before I leave on vacation. I was hoping to review it before I go away but now I just hope that I get it!

I am guessing that by the time you read this it has been launched.

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is to OmniFocus for the iPad. This has been my most anticipated app for the iPad and even though I have not yet seen it (as this post is scheduled) I am sure it is awesome!.
  • My second link is a post looking at the Causes of Difficulty Getting Things Done. It is fair to say that more people fail at productivity than who achieve a productive lifestyle and this post tries to look at why this happens.
  • My third link is to an interesting post covering The Hit List, the Mac GTD Application. The post is titled Forget what you need to do, with confidence! and it is well worth the time investment.
  • My fourth link is a link to a post stating why Evernote is a Lifesaver for the blog author. I agree, Evernote is a lifesaver for me too!
  • My fifth and last link is to part 8 of a 14 part series from the Simple Dollar where they are discussing the Getting Things Done book by David Allen. This fourth installment is titled Getting Things Done: Keeping Your System Functional. This is an excellent series and well worth the time investment.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Evernote on the Apple iPad

Evernote for the iPad

Congratulations to Evernote for getting their iPad client ready without actually touching an iPad!

They used the iPad simulator that is built into XCode in order to built and test the Apple iPad client of their excellent software.

Be sure to read the full blog post covering the Evernote iPad Client and also check out the video below.

I do not have an iPad as I live in the UK but you can be sure I will have one on the UK Launch Day and this will be once of the first iPad applications that I review!

Be sure to check out all the other posts I have written on Evernote.

Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 4th April 2010

Happy Easter to all my readers!

I guess the news of the day is the fact that the Apple iPad was released yesterday.

I am very excited about the productivity aspects of the iPad and will be writing a few iPad Productivity posts this week. Being based in the UK I do not have my hands on an iPad yet and I am still awaiting the UK release date.

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is a link to a great post titled 13 small things to simplify your workday from ZenHabits. ZenHabits do a great job at producing excellent blog posts and this one is no exception.
  • My second link is a link to a post titled Procrastination: Feeling overwhelmed, helpless and ready to run away. Procrastination is something that affects us all and this post makes good reading for all.
  • My third link is to the a post from thecynh.com titled 17 Ways for Lone Entrepreneurs to Stay Motivated. This is a very interesting post about a real problem that a lot of self made entrepreneurs suffer from at some time in the lives. More and more people are setting up on their own but they lack the interaction of being in a busy environment and this can bring with it issues relating to motivation. This post tries to look at some ways to avoid this issue.
  • My fourth link is a link to the news that Evernote for the iPad has arrived!. I love and use Evernote daily and this just looks like an awesome app on the iPad. Boy I cannot wait to see this one!
  • My fifth and last link is a link to Things, the GTD Application, for the Apple iPad. I have covered and reviewed Things on this blog in depth and this is the first GTD app to market for the new iPad. Looking forward to seeing how it performs.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Productivity on the Apple iPad Links – 31st January 2010

The biggest news of the week has to be the Apple Media event that took place on Wednesday announcing the Apple iPad.

I will be writing my own initial thoughts on the Apple iPad hopefully this week before I go on my trip to Washington DC.

So, I thought I would share a great collection of iPad and Productivity links with you this week.

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is to a great post from John Kendrick on his blog titled iPad – the Perfect GTD Solution?. Great preview of the forthcoming iPad and a great look into how this can be integrated into your GTD system.
  • My second link is a link to iPad or Bust, the iPad blog post from the OmniGroup. OmniGroup are the company behind OmniFocus, my GTD app of choice and the one I use daily on my iPhone and Mac. Obviously myself and a lot of other folk are interested in hearing about the development plans for the Apple iPad and I am not disappointed so far in what I am hearing.
  • My third link is to the Evernote Blog post that announces their intention to provide support for the Apple iPad. Great news and I cannot wait to see what Evernote have in store for the Apple iPad.
  • My fourth link is a link to the iPad review from The Productive Organizer. As well as a review of the product this post goes and looks into some possible applications for productivity and how they will be enhanced on the Apple iPad.
  • My fifth and last link is a link to the official Apple Website for the iPad. There is a really awesome video on the Apple site that really shows off the iPad in all its glory.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!
