Have you ever explored the magic of Google Chrome extensions? If not, you’re in for a treat! Google Chrome has some excellent organizing features and other fun and exciting tools. Are you ready to get organized? Here. We. Go.
Tasksboard is a Google Chrome Extension that I use every day. It’s a Kanban way of viewing Google Tasks. It is an electronic to-do list that you can arrange by date or drag into your own order. You can share your list with others so they can see what’s done and what needs doing, and the best part is it syncs across all of your devices. You have to get the app, called Google Tasks, for iPhone, but it works beautifully. The information I wrote on my desktop all appears on the app. Now I can schedule all my blog posts!
Tabliss is a fun way to spruce up your tabs. It creates beautiful, customizable backgrounds and widgets that don’t require permissions. So literally every time you open a new tab, you’ll get a stunning new image to admire.
The only problem is that if you download this extension, you’ll no longer be able to see your most frequently visited sites. But that’s easily fixable by bookmarking or viewing your history.
Google Keep Web Clipper
If you find something on the web that you want to save, try Google Keep Web Clipper. It will sync across all of your devices. You can also take notes and add labels to categorize your clipping so you can find it quickly later on. You can save images, texts, and URLs, and everything saves to Google Keep. I saved an article from Forbes with Clipper, and sure enough, there it was when I opened Google Keep. Pretty cool.
Evernote Web Clipper
Not a fan of Google Keep? No problem. There’s also Evernote Web Clipper. It has many similar features to Keep, but it’s better for taking more detailed notes and saving a variety of multimedia. If Keep is like using sticky notes, Evernote is like one of those Mead 5-Star multi-subject notebooks–with pockets.
Todoist is one of the most popular To-Do applications. The Verge ranks it as “the best to-do list right now.” It’s easy to add websites and other content to Todoist. You can add websites as tasks, which is great if most of your work is online. You can set up due dates and recurring due dates for habit-building, use priority levels to prioritize your tasks, assign tasks to others, and even track progress with activity trends personalized to you. This is the ultimate tool to measure your productivity and effectiveness.
Now that you’re familiar with the awesome power of Google Chrome, you’re ready to begin your journey to a more organized lifestyle. Using even one of these fine applications will revolutionize the way you plan, collaborate, delegate, and produce. I dare you to prove me wrong.
