Over the last month I've found a few things that might help you be more productive, gather information or be creative in other ways.
Here's a few of my favorite apps & websites I've found recently:
Dreamboard: An app & a website where you can record all your dreams.
Pros: really easy to record your dreams. Keeps track of how many times you dream of the same people, reoccurring images, how often you dream.
Cons: Sometimes double counts people if you mention them in your summary, doesn't track reoccurring places.
***My note: I use it every morning (instead of doing morning pages for Artist Way) and it's basic but works.
The Email Game: www.emailga.me: Answer your gmail more quickly because you get points for taking care of email and scheduling it to return (aka boomerang it back at a better time).
Pros: If you're competitive as I am or like playing games, this will challenge you to get through your email. I cleaned out I email box the first day.
Negatives: A couple people received a note in my email that it might not be from me because it was sent from an outside website. But that only happened a couple times and seems to be fixed, though I'm not sure how.
Also, it's only for Gmail.
And if you find you like, that you can download--
Boomerang: http://www.boomeranggmail.com/ to your regular email.
Pros: It's free for the first month. And you can schedule things to be sent later or have emails you aren't ready to work on to be sent to you later.
Cons: There's a small monthly fee to keep it if you like it.
My Note: I love it and will definitely continue with it.
1 Second App by Cesar Kuriyama: A fantastic 99 cent app you can get for your phone. Every day you take video that reflects a moment in your day. Then you choose 1 second from that day. In a month, you have 30 second of video. In a year, 356 seconds of video.
My note: I've been doing this since January 1 and I'm looking forward to seeing my year in review. I've missed two days, but they let me put in a photo. I supported his Kickstarter campaign, which might make me like it more.
The Emergent Task Planner: This is a great to do list to help organize your day and the top three things you want to get done.
I think there's actually a book that goes with this as well, but I haven't read it. But love this sheet to help me organize.
