How To Get More Time Back Using These Productivity Tools – Part 1

How To Get More Time Back Using These Productivity Tools – Part 1


Hi everyone, itís Tyrone from Tyroneshum.com.
In todayís video tutorial, I want to show you my three top productive and time saving
tools that I use in my business. And, Iíve been getting a lot of people asking me this
question, ìHow can I save a lot of things being mobile and save it all online?î So,
I thought letís just look at really good applications that I use day to day and it
helps me save everything. The reason being is just in case you lost your laptop or you
might lose your data on your laptop, everything will be backed up or saved online. Therefore,
allowing you to have the so-called paperless office. For me, I try to keep everything at a minimum
so thatís why I try to have all my papers and everything like notes and stuff like that
I put online. All right, letís have a look. The first thing I want to show you today is
the software called Evernote which you can go to www.evernote.com and itís a really,
really neat piece of tool. Itís an online-based tool but you can also install it by from PC
and also Mac, it also allows you have desktop application. The reason behind Evernote is
that what happens is that anything that you want to capture either via camera, via scan
document or even capturing onto from a website, you can put it all into Evernote. Youíll
never ever have to write everything down as it allows you to put all online for free.
So to download Evernote, all you have to do is just click on here, it says ìDownload
nowî. Iím going to show you a quick demo of how it works and how easy it is. Letís say for example, I want to save a little
blog post on Evernote. So Iíll go to my blog. All right, letís go straight to the bottom,
say for example down here. Say for example, Iím wanting to save all these texts that
are here that you can see. With Evernote, once Evernote has been installed, just open
it up and go to Clip Screenshot into Evernote, and what itíll do is itíll ask you to drag
a proportion of it and select that. So Iíll select that whole area I want to save. Once
Iíve done that, Iíll click Okay. In a few seconds, youíll have it snipped straight
into Evernote and itís all saved online. There you go, you can see right there. So, instead of saving a whole website or whole
page, you can just snip off whatever you need to be saved and you can put that all in that.
Weíll just save it as PLF 3.0. Also, the great thing about this piece of software is
it allows you to search in between. For example, if I was to type in Jeff Walker as a search
term, Evernote knows how to search inside your notes and find exact information. Therefore,
it makes it so easy to be able to find and search for data and you wonít have any lose
notes lying around. So Iíll save this as well. Letís say for example, I want to search 4-Hour
Work Week, so Iíll type it up here on the side and there you go as you can see, it comes
up straight away. Anything we say Youtube on it, did you see that? Bang, it comes straight
up. Thatís how easy it is. I love this little piece of software because you can store lots
and lots of stuff inside Evernote and therefore you wonít have to store it in a piece of
paper. If youíve got a scanner, just scan all the documents in there. Ideally, what
I would use Evernote for is to scan all the documents that you donít need to be kept
in a folder anymore. Put it all in Evernote and it allows to be stored in there and then
it allow you to search it through. So this is a really, really neat tool and easy to
use tool that you can use everyday so check it out. The next piece that I highly recommend and
I use everyday is LastPass. LastPass is an automatic password filler for you. Itís the
best application that you can find that will save all those rather than saving into spreadsheet
or saving into anything else like another software, itís just so much easy. What youíll
find is say for example if you want to add in your password to access your Gmail account,
or anything that requires a log in and a password, this will automatically fill in for you. All
you have to do is simply just download LastPass here. What will happen is that once itís
downloaded or installed its application right here, and once itís installed onto your browser,
itíll help you fill in your passwords. Iíll show you how easy it is right now and Iíll
log into just a sample account. So Iím going to log right into say for example
my Google account here, all I have to do is just press the Up and Down key, it allows
me to scroll through all the usernames and passwords which it fits right. Once youíve
done that and youíre happy with that, all you have to do is simply click Sign in. What
happens is that, itíll automatically sign you and what happens is that it will automatically
sign you in and therefore you donít have to remember everything which is good in so
many ways and also much more productive and fast. All you need is just one main password
which is asked when you log in from your browser. Thatís all you have to do! This is a time,
productive saving tool and you just need to install this if youíre going to be keeping
all your passwords and everything all saved in one location. The next tool that Iím going to show you
is called Freedom. Freedomís an awesome little piece of software. If youíre like me who
gets distracted quite easily from the Internet, I can guarantee you that this software will
stop you from doing that. Freedom is a software which restricts access to your Internet browser
and network access to anything and it allows you just to focus solely on the tasks that
youíre doing right now. Say for example, if you need to crank out and write an article
which takes you an hour, two hours to write out or less than that, Freedom blocks off
any Internet access, any network access so that you donít get distracted. And, the only
way for you to access the Internet again is for you to reboot your computer. Now, itís
a bit frustrating if youíre in the middle of a task and then you have to get access
to the Internet because you need to browse for something or you just want to procrastinate,
then reboot is really annoying so it forces you to continue to stay productive and focus
on your work. You can have it scheduled up to anywhere up
to 180 minutes or even 8 hours it says here so 480 minutes. You can download this just
directly here by a Mac version and also Windows XP or Windows 7 version. Just install it onto
your computer. For the trial version, it allows you to use it for up to five times, and then
after that, you just have to pay for the full version which is only 10 bucks. So for something
that will save your time and productivity, this is an excellent piece of software that
Iíve been using myself as well to stop me from hopping onto the Internet and just focus
on what I need to do. This is great for writing articles or great for doing anything that
you need to focus your productivity on. So, give it a go. These are the three top
tools that I recommend to give it a trial out because these things really, really help
increase the productivity in my business. Watch for the next video, Iíll be showing
you more tools that Iíve got that will help you increase and also save your time as well.
Hopefully, youíve liked these tools that Iíve recommended. These are just so far the
top three that Iíve got here. If youíve got any comments, feedback or you like to

and comments and yeah, talk to you guys soon. Itís Tyrone from Tyroneshum.com. Have a great
