There is no question that the tools you use can help you increase your productivity. Using the right tools can help you accomplish more in less time.
In my case, I use many tools that fill different roles. But, if I had to choose only one of them as my favorite, I would choose Microsoft OneNote.
OneNote is not a new tool for me. I had used the Windows version in the past. Since I moved to the Mac in 2010, however, I no longer used it. Why? Because OneNote wasn’t available on the Mac.
A few months ago, Microsoft finally released OneNote for Mac. That alone was good news for me. But there’s more: OneNote is now free! You no longer have to buy it as a part of Microsoft Office.
I have used it since then and I love it. I use it to store my to-do lists and a lot of my ideas.
My favorite feature in OneNote is outlining. It allows me to write things in a nested way and then collapse or expand them. That way I can choose to see either the details or the big picture. For example, let’s say that I have some ideas for a project I’m doing. I can write those ideas under the project name to add details to that project. But then I can hide them to easily see all the projects I have.
So that’s the case with me. But of course, everyone has their own favorite tool. So here is my question to you:
What is your favorite productivity tool and why?
