    I'm big on optimizing my time. For this reason, I find myself always changing up productivity tools, leaning towards the most efficient. The following are what I have been using on a daily basis for a good bit of time now:

    Todoist - Awesome to-do list, handles recurring tasks (i.e. if I have something I have to do on Mondays, I put monday in the date box. When I check it off, it moves it to the following Monday). I also really like the minimal interface and project separators.

    Evernote - Pretty straightforward. I've been trying to replace any handwritten notes and Word documents with Evernote notes. Eventually I will expand that into receipts. I also recently started using it for web clippings of things I want to read later vs bookmarks in my browser.

    Keyboard Maestro - Wonderful for speeding up tasks that can be automated using hotkeys. If I want to launch CCleaner and start a wipe, I hit Command+option+control+C (Mac user) and call it a day while it runs in the background.

    Slack - We use this all the time for my 9-5. It's cut the amount of emails I need to send and that I have to receive in half easily.

    I used to use a lot more: Trello, Wunderlist, Google Notes, Omnifocus, etc just to name a few. I also had Excel sheets for to-do lists and calendars and more. I regularly go through a minimalization sessions where I purge crap I don't need in both my physical and online life. The above four have made the cut every time.

    What have you guys been using to great success regarding productivity?
