"What you do today can improve all your tomorrows." ~Ralph Marston

This week has been CRAZY BUSY because #cobblerlife and I realized that I need to find ways to work better. My new boss Christine to the rescue! She told me about this tool, Shift, that she has been using to manage her multiple email accounts along with other things and I tried it out. I installed it and immediately bought the Advanced plan.
What it helps me do:
  • Open less tabs in my Chrome browser. So instead of having 20 tabs open at a time, it’s more like 10. πŸ˜‚
  • Swap between my many email accounts with the click of a button and still use the native Gmail app
  • Log into two different Asana and Slack accounts at the same time and be able to switch between and get notifications for everything
In a word: #gamechanger. Also it is definitely helping me do a better job of focusing on one thing at a time.
Since I’m freelancing now and not getting that lovely company-purchased laptop, I’m back to using my MacBook Air circa 2014. It’s still humming along mind you but I had recently read about how Kara at Brass Ring Daily used Clean My Mac to make her computer a little faster. I ran the tool and was immediately able to reclaim 10GB of free space and things are working a lot faster. πŸ™ŒπŸΎ
