One of the biggest reasons people fail with running their own business is lack of focus. It has cost me a lot over the years. Sometimes it’s good to take perspective and look at how you spend your time. Such a way of doing this is by use of apps. Okay, so no app will be responsible for increasing your productivity, but they are great ways of tracking it. Two of the clear winners, in my opinion, are Rescue Time and Toggl. Both of these apps track your time, but in different ways. Rescue Time sits quietly in the background while you are working at your computer. The power of this tool is that it monitors all the sites you visit and also looks at how many times you're switching between sites. Toggle on the other hand is a stopwatch or a countdown timer that actually looks at how long you’re spending on a particular task. One thing I love about toggle is that when you move away from the computer, and forget to switch it off, it will stop itself and resume when you return. The beauty is that both these tools have a free starter version. The paid versions are very affordable too! When I have an app holding me accountable, I'm also more likely to focus. What apps do you recommend and why? Do you have any secrets you’d like to share in regards to how you increase your productivity? I definitely have found my own secret weapon which I’ll announce shortly.
