Productivity Courses: A Brief History For the past five years I’ve been developing and leading productivity courses designed to support people in living balanced, purposeful lives while making effective use of technology.

An iPad Remote for Mac and Windows I first learned of the Actions iPad app while listening to a recent episode of one my favourite podcasts, MacPowerUsers.

Alfred, one of my favourite productivity apps for the Mac just saw a major upgrade. Alfred 2 is a complete redesign of the app that includes numerous enhancements as well as a major new feature called Workflows. Among other things, Workflows can be used to assign keyboard shortcuts to frequently accessed applications, folders, websites, web searches and system commands. As a general rule, it's much faster to control your Mac using the keyboard than it is using the mouse or trackpad. Setting up and learning keyboard shortcuts takes a little investment in time, and it's an investment that quick ..read more
