This weekend we have updated the web application with a new feature that will allow you to synchronize your FacileThings calendar with multiple Google and Outlook calendar accounts at the same time.

If you use different Google and Outlook accounts to manage your personal and professional calendars, now you can bring all these data sources together in one GTD calendar.

If you already have your Google or Outlook calendar perfectly integrated with FacileThings and don’t need to use any other, you don’t have to do anything. Your current integration will continue to work as before.

However, if you want to…

Mental health is a key aspect of productivity. When things are good, we often take for granted how essential our mental health is in making the progress we want and achieving the business goals that we strive for. Now, as businesses continue to adjust to the complicated needs of a post-pandemic economy, the focus on mental health is arguably more important than ever before.

Mental health concerns have increased alongside shutdowns and isolation across remote work practices. These conditions may contribute to worker safety and even productivity in some cases, but they are also a recipe for mental health concerns…

Peter Drucker said that being effective is “doing the right things”, and that’s what any knowledge worker is expected to do. Being effective is something that everyone would want to be regardless of their life’s circumstances, not just in professional matters.

Although knowledge, intelligence and creativity are essential resources for doing things right, only effectiveness produces results. Working on the right things is what makes the work effective.

Curiously enough, we aren’t taught how to be effective in the current school system, so we must be the ones who, proactively, seek the best way to produce results. It’s our responsibility…

To the untrained eye or the non-entrepreneur, it’s just the ‘spare room’. To you — the self-proclaimed Richard Branson! — it’s going to be the home office of your dreams. You have a blank canvass to build your dreams and millions upon, but where do you start?

Maximize your workspace

To have the ideal working space you desire, you must maximize your working space. The goal is to make sure you are comfortable. You may want to make the room slightly bigger by pinching some space from the bedroom next to your office, or maybe you want to knock out the chimney breast…

In GTD, Agendas are just a set of Next Actions associated with a person or a group of people.

In the same way that we link Next Actions to the physical contexts or tools that are needed to carry those actions out, so that we then have a short list of actions to do that we can focus on when we are in that context, we can link actions to the people we need to be with or talk to in order to carry them out. …

The pandemic opened a window to new opportunities for freelancers but new challenges too. Finding the balance between these two aspects is the key to leverage the moment. Before the pandemic, the freelancing world was already growing rapidly. But the pandemic shook the foundation as it did with all the other fields. So, if you are a freelancer or are thinking of joining this working style, here are some opportunities and challenges that you need to consider.

1. The boom of the digital world

The pandemic forced businesses and individuals to go digital. It was not an option anymore because it became the only way to reach…

This weekend we have updated the FacileThings web application with a series of improvements aimed at facilitating the management of collaborators in your GTD system.

These improvements will allow you, among other things:

  • Share an action with several people,
  • Better manage delegated tasks,
  • Customize your contact list, and
  • Be clear about the agenda to deal with every time you talk to one of your collaborators.

Let’s move on to see it in more detail.

Productivity is part of the modern lifestyle. Professionals are always seeking out techniques to increase their output and perfect their efficiency. While productivity methods are helpful in their own way, though, there’s one productivity booster that is as simple and natural as breathing.

Sleeping in a quality setting and in sufficient quantities can have a dramatic effect on your overall productivity, no matter what situation you find yourself in. If you’re looking for ways to increase your productivity, here are a few solid reasons that getting better sleep should be high on the list.

The Relationship Between Sleep and Productivity

It likely comes as no surprise…

Stoics recommended walking as a form of mental training to connect with the unconscious. Buddhists recommend walking for a higher, happier and healthier life. Many of the most brilliant minds throughout history found the ideas for which they are known in their walks.

Philosophers like Nietzsche and Freud, composers like Mahler and Beethoven, inventors like Tesla and Einstein, writers like Hemingway and Darwin, activists like Dorothy Day and Martin Luther King, and visionaries like Steve Jobs all included walks in their daily routines.

Going for a walk is not just a well-deserved break from work or a simple way to…

There are times in life when you have to change some things. You realize that you’ve reached your limit in some kind of situation and you can no longer continue doing things the way you were doing them. …
