  3. 3. Productivity using technology.
  4. 4. 84% say computers are necessary for their job. This most likely includes you.
  5. 5. Occupied with an object of attention. People are busy.
  6. 6. Achieving a significant amount or result. Getting things done.
  7. 7. Chances are you only have 78.64 years. Sad, but statistically true.
  8. 8. Hardware, software, and habits.
  9. 9. Hardware. The fastest way to be faster.
  10. 10. Desktops, laptops, tablets, consoles, and phones. Oh my.
  11. 11. What should you be using? Just enough to capture, review, and do.
  12. 12. Size does matter. More screen real-estate allows for more productive behavior.

  14. 14. I’ve got no strings to hold me down. WiFi, MiFi, and tethering your way to magical freedom.

  22. 22. Always have what you need when you need it. Sync with Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive.
  23. 23. You don’t need to remember anything. Your digital notebook, Evernote or OneNote.
  24. 24. One list to rule them all. Capture tasks with Wunderlist, Any.Do, or Workflowy.
  25. 25. We’re better together. Collaborate with Basecamp, Asana, or Flow.
  26. 26. Always have a backup plan. Automate backups with Carbonite or Backblaze.
  27. 27. Be there when you’re here. Remote access with TeamViewer, LogMeIn, or GoToMyPC.
  28. 28. Habits. Out with the bad, in with the good.
  29. 29. Take a break. Recharge and work in smaller chunks.
