This summer I began using Action Method paper products from Behance to organize my life. I have used the Action Cahiers and Action Pads with great success. Writing things down really helps me to stay on top of various tasks and the clean design of Action Method paper products helps un-clutter my life. For those wanting more a digital feel, they also offer a great App for Web/iOS/Android that allows you to collaborate with multiple people and sync across all devices.
While my Action Cahier rides in my back pocket - there is a sharpie pen riding in my breast pocket. These pens don’t bleed through and I find them very easy to write with - a great companion to the Cahier.
Helping to organize all the many cords and electronics that exist in my life is the Cocoon Grid-it. This great device allows you weave everything into its rubber webbing and organize your pack or briefcase.
If you haven’t done so recently, organize your life by going through your e-mail and unsubscribing from superfluous e-mail subscriptions. Fifteen minutes spent getting rid of excess subscriptions will keep you from looking at your phone every time another e-mail comes in and will help you unclutter your inbox.
To further increase your e-mail productivity use Tout App. Tout App allow you to create basic e-mail templates that you find yourself sending over and over. For example: I created a template for sending out my resume because I found myself doing that a number of times while trying to find internships. As a cool add-on Tout has created a program to give you a full review of all the e-mail you’ve processed in the past year. It spits out a clean report with slick infographics which allow you see how you e-mail. Check it out here.
