Let’s face it, we online entrepreneurs can be a bit scattered at times, our online productivity can be diminished. Now we’re not making personal jabs here; we are merely referencing our unquenched desire for information. Our browser is a great metaphor for this description. How many tabs do you currently have open and running on your browser? Our guess is it’s not just one or two. There are probably several open and vying for your attention at every minute of every day. If you’re looking for a way to manage this unrealistic notion of multi-tasking One Tab might be a great Chrome extension for you to increase your online productivity.
One Tab is a browser extension for Chrome that allows you to collapse all your open tabs into a single tab. Within that tab, it will list out your collapsed tabs in a list method. It’s a great way to manage space used on your machine. Also, it controls your attention being directed in dozens of different directions. It isn’t quite as appealing to your brain, so it cuts down on unnecessary skimming and browsing.
The online world is a difficult place to stay focused, in particular for those of you that work and connects with this world every day. If you are looking for an easy way to manage the amount distractions, then One Tab may work well for you. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
Now that you have fought and won some available time what do you do with it? How about a simple way to manage your time effectively.
While researching Apps in Chrome we came across a few options for productivity timers. Also called Pomodoro Timers, they essentially create a way for you to manage your time in a way that increases efficiency and reduces work overload.
We downloaded an App called Time Doser. It’s a digital timer for your browser that helps you segment out blocks of time in the goal of being more productive. As an example, you can set a timer for 25 minutes of focused work. As the time expires, you follow that 25-minute block with a 5 minute rest period. The goal of the schedule is to allow your brain to manage small, achievable goals for focused work. Then you are rewarded for your focus with a little rest time.
As folks that strive for increased online productivity like us here at Dotto Tech, it’s nice to have a few more tools on our belt. With One Tab you can battle the productivity demons and get back some more time. Once you have the time with Time Doser, you can ensure that your time will be well spent.
In the end, it’s all about managing your time to the best of your ability. And hopefully, with these tools, you too can increase your efficiency.
Until next time, have fun stormin’ the castle…
