The final installment of things that make my life easier... Links to part 1 and 2 are at the end.
11. A password list
It's not the most secure, but I keep all my
passwords in a word document saved on my Dropbox. I have a mabillionty
passwords for all the things and between all the new school passwords
(and having to sign up for multiple accounts per class) as well as the
name change situation that is currently transpiring, I have to
have a way to keep them all straight. I reference it more than I care
to admit, but it's easier than dealing with the password change process
every single time I can't remember my password.
12. Closing Facebook
When I can't seem to get things
accomplished when I'm on the computer, I close Facebook. I have a bad
habit of switching to it to check if there are any updates when my mind
blanks out, which usually leads to a complete derailment of whatever
progress I was making.
13. Turning off notifications
There are a very minimal number of
apps on my phone and programs on my computer that are allowed to notify
me of things. Not getting notifications means I'm not constantly
checking my phone to clear the notifications. No getting distracted = getting shit done.
14. Having an email address for spam
I hate advertising because
it works on me so well. I unsubscribe to all the distro lists that
automatically sign me up for advertising emails. Also, when companies
ask for my email address and I know I want their coupons but don't want
to see the emails, I give them my spam account. #notsorry. My inbox is
for tasks that need to be accomplished and having a tidy inbox makes my
15. Tackle the little things first
a task is going to take a short amount of time, I do it right away.
This saves me from stressing about trying to prioritize it later because
it's already complete.
