As effective as time-tested productivity methods can be, there’s always room for new and improved techniques – particularly with the constant advancement of technology. Smartphones and computers leave the door wide open to new possibilities, whether it’s a productivity app or new software for your desktop computer.
One of my favorite productivity books comes from the folks at Lifehacker (who also happen to author one of my favorite blogs). This book, titled Lifehacker: The Guide to Working Smarter, Faster, and Better, is unlike a lot of other productivity books in that it covers the latest and greatest techniques – not just the ones that have been around for years. Yes, you may have to buy more than one copy as new editions come out (they’re currently on the 3rd edition); however, in my opinion, it’s a worthy investment considering how much time (and money) you can save using their proposed methods.
Here’s a summary from Amazon Books:
“Lifehackers redefine personal productivity with creative and clever methods for making life easier and more enjoyable. This new edition of a perennial bestseller boasts new and exciting tips, tricks, and methods that strike a perfect balance between current technology and common sense solutions for getting things done. Exploring the many ways technology has changed since the previous edition, this new edition has been updated to reflect the latest and greatest in technological and personal productivity.
The new ‘hacks’ run the gamut of working with the latest Windows and Mac operating systems for both Windows and Apple, getting more done with smartphones and their operating systems, and dealing with the evolution of the web. Even the most tried-and-true hacks have been updated to reflect the contemporary tech world and the tools it provides us.
Technology is supposed to make our lives easier by helping us work more efficiently. Lifehacker: The Guide to Working Smarter, Faster, and Better, Third Edition is your guide to making that happen!”
