I talk about productivity all the time, no kidding, just look at the search term on the Tech Smart Boss blog
. But the reality is, with all the task and project management tools in my tech stack, I still drag my feet and procrastinate to get things done. I’ve found a new tool and this week it’s the Cool Tech of the Week, Amazing Marvin.
Granted it’s a weird name, but don’t let that distract. I decided to give it a try and while it did take me longer than I felt it should to figure out how to use the actual software, once I did, I fell in a happy bliss with it (I’m not saying love yet).
Now part of the reason I struggled, I did what I always do, click around and try to figure it out. With Marvin, I had to watch some tutorial videos. Honestly, I still don’t have it all figured out, but what I was able to do is build a master list of all my projects, tasks, subtasks, apply priorities, generate a smart list to show me the important things and then easily build a daily-to do list for myself. And things I don’t get done, I can easily reschedule for the next day.
I still need to dig into Workflow Strategies, I have my eye on the one called Eisenhower, but I will need to watch some more videos to figure that out. In the meanwhile, using Marvin this week has been my most productive week of getting stuff done in a long time.
Check it out, our Cool Tech of the Week, Amazing Marvin!
