Over the last few months I have been looking to streamline my business to the absolute necessities. I set out to accomplish two primary goals: (1) reduce expenses and (2) reduce administrative overhead, both constraints must be accomplished or I will not proceed with a given process redesign. My lofty goal; operate on a budget for less than $500 a month and free-up time. In the consulting business there is really only a handful of tools

As I have written about before, there are a number of task management applications available for just about every platform imaginable. Of course, the simplest form being pen and paper. This is not a bad solution for many and sometimes the most logical way to go. However, even with the pen and paper method, there is a right and wrong way to take and record notes. Ask any successful college student and they’ll tell you that

I have been on a recent kick of outsourcing most of the tasks and systems that originally resided in-house. For example, my recent articles on the benefits of Evernote and Dropbox. Well, this mantra has now carried over to media as well. I still keep my iTunes music, financials, copies of my business and personal files, and personal videos onsite—housed on my servers—however media for my websites and public domain, such as for this blog,

Experiment: Going Digital – Giving up Pen and Paper for a Week: Part 2

OK, it has been a little over a week, and its time I present my findings. First and foremost, for someone such as myself that enjoys both the digital world and conventional methods of workflow, I found it very difficult to abandon old habits. Once I got over this hurtle—about three days into the experiment—I found the conversion to be much simpler. I take notes on just about everything; conversations, tasks, ideas, etc… Needless to

I must admit that there was a time in my life that I enjoyed tweaking systems and “playing” around with different settings to see (a) what would happen and (b) how I could improve performance. Well, that time has pasted and I now simply want things to work out of the box with little to no tweaking. I simply don’t have the time, or inclination to participate in such behavior. This is one reason I love

I have decided to see if--at least for me--it is possible to go an entire week without taking a single note via the conventional means of pen and paper. I am one that has always kept two systems; (1) pen and paper for random thoughts and notes, and (2) digital means such as tasks lists, calendars, and so forth. For me, this is going to be a huge plunge into the abyss. I can’t possibly
