After 10 years of development, eProductivity has proven to be a stable product; however, there's always room for improvement and the occasional fixes. :-) This release of eProductivity includes many new features to facilitate working with archives as well as various new productivity features. Here are a few highlights; for more details, see here. Productivity Features Added To speed up filing emails, the 'Send & File' and 'Move to Folder' menus now display the last three fol

Domino Server on Raspberry Pi
Sun, Oct 4th 2015 2:50a   Eric Mack
I have a Domino server which I've kept on the shelf for the past 10 years because it runs a legacy application that I use occasionally. It's been running just fine -- nonstop -- for more than a decade. It doesn't need much processing power nor does it need much disk space. I've though about how I might preserve it and keep it running and I have considered using either a VM or a mini ATX server. Last year, Hackaday, one of my favorite hacking sites, had an article on how to load a limited

Why should I invest in my people when they’ll leave anyway?

Coaching my clients new levels of workplace performance is my favorite thing about what I do. Sometimes it's hard, but hearing what they say afterward makes it all worth it: Clearly, I wasn't working as efficiently as I could have. Now, I'm creating greater results, with less effort I had no idea such basic shifts in the way that I think about my work and how I use my tools could have such a profound impact on my performance, and my life. Thank you! The last time my inbox was this empt

I sometimes hear the question, "Why should I invest in the tools my people have? We're getting a shiny new tool in a year." To me, what they're really saying is: "Our people are using dull tools now, but that's ok, because in a year they're going to get another, shinier, set of tools, which may or may not be better." Here's a practical application: I was recently talking with a client about expanding eProductivity usage at his company. He wasn't sure he wanted to, because, he said,

Does your GTD toolkit have support for your cognitive artifacts?
Mon, Jun 15th 2015 8:15p   Eric Mack
Recently, a coaching client asked me for some recommendations for paper-based resources that would help him implement "Getting Things Done." I coach executives and professionals who use a variety of systems and tools. No matter how elaborate your systems, I find it's always helpful to have at least a few physical tools: solid reminders of ideas and tasks can be extremely helpful. Plus, the physical act of writing can help your memory and creative thinking. In light of this, I recommen

I was scanning the job board of a client that I serve and found this embedded in the description for an employment position: I would expect this in a job listing for a juggler at a circus, not for a desk job. This is a position for a knowledge worker—someone who "thinks" for a living. Thinking to create value requires concentration. Concentration requires focus. Both require minimizing distraction both from internal sources (e.g. multitasking) and external (interruptions, dist
