How to instantly create new To Do’s, Emails, and Calendar entries from anywhere within Notes
Wed, Jan 21st 2015 3:22p   Eric Mack
Here are a few of my favorite shortcuts -- these will let you instantly create new Calendar entries and eProductivity Projects and Actions from any window or tab in Notes. Here's how to do it: For To-Do's: press the Alt key, then type C M T For Calendar: press the Alt key, then type C M C For Email, hold Ctrl and press M Edit your new document, then save and close (or send). It's that easy. Your Mail file doesn't even have to be open. To discover even more Notes keyboard shor

Ramp up your workspeed with the most powerful key on your keyboard
Mon, Aug 25th 2014 4:46p   Nathan Paul
Imagine if, instead of taking a few clicks to do a task, you could to it in a few keystrokes? I'm sure you're all familiar with the shortcuts for copy (Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V). Imagine doing those manually instead of using the shortcuts, every time. Now are you getting a sense of how much time those little keystrokes save you? How to use the Alt key (a.k.a. the "magical shortcut to darn near everything" key) Hold the Alt button. Notice that this does two things: 1) causes c

How I make smarter choices and feel better about how I use my time
Tue, Feb 18th 2014 11:02a   Eric Mack
Do you ever find yourself unable to make a decision about whether or not to move forward on something? Have you ever asked yourself, "self, why did I waste my time in that way?" I've done both. Many times. As I continue to do research in high performance knowledge work and personal knowledge management, I've collected a number of tools and methods to help me make smarter decisions about what to do or not do. Today, I'd like to share one of those tools with you. I call it my

An introduction to a solid way of getting things done
Tue, Feb 4th 2014 10:42p   Eric Mack
[Guest blog post by Nathan Paul] David Allen opens his book, Getting Things Don, the Art of Stress Free Productivity, with this statement: “It’s possible for a person to have an overwhelming number of things to do and still function productively with a clear head and a positive sense of relaxed control” (p. 3). I don’t know about you, but my immediate reaction was, “Yes please!” I’m going to give you a partial summary of the first chapter of Mr.

The Natural Planning Method: simple, effective, and free for helping you get things done
Tue, Feb 4th 2014 10:22p   Eric Mack
[Guest blog post by Nathan Paul] The Natural Planning Method is something you’ve been doing your whole life without realizing it. Recently, I’ve been learning to consciously apply it to everything I do — and it’s been a huge relief. In a word, it’s given me a trusted process for dealing with just about anything I need or want to do. Now, instead of dozens of projects flying into my brain at random to tug my attention away from what I’m doing, I can

TED: “The Art of Stress-Free Productivity” A recommendation and response
Fri, Jan 31st 2014 5:00a   Eric Mack
[Guest blog post by Nathan Paul] When I hear the words “productivity guru,” I picture a bald, fit, bespectacled man with a goatee and a flashy suit giving a jargon-heavy presentation to a group of executives (who are pretending to understand what he’s saying) on the subject of how to cram 100 hours of work into a mere 50-hour work week — and, more importantly, how to get their employees to do the same. His constant calendar-checking, emailing, and texting do nothi

Mon, Jan 27th 2014 8:22p   Eric Mack
IBM Connections is now positioned as the platform upon which the rest of the IBM social and collaboration suites rest. This means that some established brands will be renamed into the Connections stack: IBM Notes (The product formerly known as Lotus Notes) is now IBM Mail IBM Sametime is now Connections Chat and Meetings. There was no mention of the Notes client or the Domino server other than a brief mention that IBM will be hosting Domino Apps in the cloud. Micro
