I have been using Dropbox for years but they recently raised their prices, so I'm considering leaving. Additionally, as time has passed, many of my new files have been created in Drive for UI and collaboration reasons. I am a big Adobe Lightroom user, and my image files (50GB+ worth) live in Dropbox for backup. Would Drive be a sufficient place for big image files like Dropbox is? If not, I am considering keeping a small Dropbox subscription for images and Drive for all other file purposes.
In a world where a thousand things are constantly competing for our attention — from our smartphones to the 24-hour news cycle to streaming TV — it can be more difficult than ever to stay focused.
While there’s some debate about how long attention spans really are these days, there’s no question that it’s difficult to keep our eyes (and mind) on just one thing.
When was the last time you felt focused — really focused — on one particular task or activity, without looking at your phone or your mind wandering to something else on your endless to-do list?
Multitasking Is a Myth
For most of us, staying focused is a serious challenge. And it’s hard to be productive without real focus. While most people think they can multitask, that’s actually a myth.
"People can't multitask very well, and when people say they can, they're deluding themselves," neuroscientist Earl Miller, a Picower professor of neuroscience at MIT, told NPR. "Switching from task to task, you think you're actually paying attention to everything around you at the same time. But you're actually not.”
And true productivity (not “busyness,” but actually making strides towards your goals) means focusing in on what really matters to you.
The good news is, there’s one solution that’s proven to help you focus, improve your concentration, and benefit all areas of your life —meditation.
Hi Everyone, I've been studying procrastination recently as part of a training program that I'm putting together for work. I wrote this article that summarizes what I've learned -- there are 4 main 'reasons' we procrastinate. Understanding why you procrastinate can be a key to overcoming it. Check this out and let me know what you think.
I want to have a rota for my family because when I go there in holidays there are a number of things I want to do and I would like them to know I will be busy during certain hours but there's also time I will be free and I want to let them know so they can assign tasks for me. Having a rota would be ideal.
Are there any tools specifically designed for this? I know there's excell but I would prefer to avoid that, online tool or linux tool would be best. I want it to output PDF so that then I can print it and then stick in the wall so everyone sees it.
I'm currently working in a product management team, and that involves from design to sales.
There are a couple of things that are already set in the work process. For example, for each product we have Day 0, so, you do the research on day 0, peer review the results on day 3, review marketing plan on the day 5, review ads on day 6, review brochure, info and so on.
Is there any way to automate this task? I'm thinking to add it to a calendar with the respective day gaps. And then, I just need to copy and paste the schedule, update the date of Day 0, and the rest should get updated. Any tool out there to help me do that?
