Another Way Of Looking At ProducivIty Tools

I know I have done my productivity system a few posts ago. However, as a writer there are multiple ways that I could sort the apps I use. Every now and then I check what Ali Abdaal has posted, as in the past his videos have been very insightful. One of his latest ones was his 2022 Productivity System and he breaks it down differently from what I do. I decided that I would use his categories and go through the list.

Disclaimer: There may be some double-ups as some apps have dual purposes.

STORAGE

This is my own category. As I tend to function in a digital ecosystem, it is valuable for me to keep a repository or two that is mainly for stored information. More so with Evernote than Notion, it is essentially an archive. I still actively use Notion for keeping track of stuff, as I have previously discussed. Google Photos is mainly just for pictures of my cats.

  • Evernote
  • Google Photos

*AUTHOR’S NOTE

In the middle of writing this blog post, I switched from Todoist to ClickUp. I will do a post about the why’s later, I am just adding this note so you are aware that it is a new change.
