You may think of increasing productivity as finding ways to do more in a shorter amount of time. While that is certainly one aspect of productivity, it can also be a matter of doing less while still accomplishing the same outcomes. Increasing productivity is also a matter of finding ways to pack productive tasks into otherwise “dead” time, such as commuting. Today, there are a number of different tech tools that can help you increase your productivity levels, no matter which route you choose. Here are 5 great tech tools every busy professional needs to help increase productivity.
Omnicharge Omni 20 ($299)
By now most people own a portable charger for charging up phones, tablets and other devices on-the-go. Laptops, however, remain somewhat difficult to charge the same way. The Omnicharge Omni 20, however has a regular A/C outlet built in, so you can charge up your laptop the same way you would your phone. The Omnicharge Omni 20 will charge your iPhone or Samsung phone up to 9 times, or give your MacBook Air a full charge.
Window Mounted Solar Charge
The window mounted solar charger is particularly great for travelers who may not spend enough time on one place to even recharge their chargers. Just stick the window-mounted solar charger’s suction cups to any window and it will give you all the juice you need to keep your electronics charged on demand.
Trello is a project management app that is great for busy professionals, entrepreneurs and project managers. With Trello, you can manage multiple projects simultaneously and see in a glance exactly where each project stands. If you need to sideline one project for a while and make another a priority, Trello allows you to easily move tasks and even reassign entire projects.
Bose QuietComfort 35 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Noise-canceling headphones are becoming a must for almost any busy professional that needs quiet to think. Today’s open offices are generally a hubbub of quiet whispers, softly burbling phones, electronic buzzing and keyboard clacking that can be highly distracting. Create pristine silence with these comfortable headphones that also happen to deliver a state-of-the-art audio experience if you prefer to listen to music rather than silence.
