I'm hoping to get a good discussion going here. I'm not necessarily looking for replies along the lines of "I wake up at 9am and then I have breakfast". I'm interested to know what sort of "life hacks" you employ in your daily business activities. How do you achieve optimum levels of productivity? For example: I start my working day by checking emails. I use Gmail because I don't have any reason not to. I can easily search for archived emails if I need to, and I'm not at risk of losing anything if I ever format my PC, which happens more often than one would expect. I have my external accounts synced with one main Gmail account and I have filters set up to show me the important stuff and keep the fluff out of my inbox. I then start work on whichever project takes highest priority on my to-do list. I use the Momentum extension for Chrome (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/momentum/laookkfknpbbblfpciffpaejjkokdgca?hl=en) to help me keep track of what I need to do that day. I have a basic Quotation/Invoicing template set up in Google Docs that I modify and save as a PDF when billing new clients: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zANYBLo1DVvIqz_Q9ZtlQxpgRAw8Q6AXK8y3w8bVSGA/edit I use a customised spreadsheet to keep track of my earnings: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/get-conors-work-tracking-spreadsheet-earnings-calculator.890790/ When I'm ready to take on more work, I activate Distill (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/distill-web-monitor/inlikjemeeknofckkjolnjbpehgadgge?hl=en) and let it monitor a selection of websites I've subscribed to. When a new lead pops up, I reply to it and cross my fingers. I wrote about the full procedure a while ago over here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/conors-guide-to-generating-leads-online.838904/ And that's basically it. Nothing super complicated, but it's a system that works well for me. I'm interested to hear what works for you.
