Once in a while, you should check your social media access permissions


One thing I do to help me being productive is to get out of my head everything that is not related to the actual task I’m doing. To do so, I’m using tools like Remember the Milk or my Google Calendar. In the latest, I also add tasks I need to do at a specific... Read more
