“Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.”

Online Tools & Apps Recommended by KW Professional Organizers

Applications are intended to save time, make systems easier & provide the necessary tools for getting the job done. However, it is easy to get caught up in the latest and greatest developments, become overwhelmed and cause unnecessary frustrations. Keep these things in mind:

Identify Weaknesses

Identify Weaknesses — seek out apps that will assist in improving areas where you currently need help!

Example: You have a hard time keeping tabs on your clients & properly following up. It may be important to research a CRM (Client Relationship Management) Software to help keep you up-to-date!

Schedule Time to Learn

Schedule Time To Learn — it’s important to choose applications that are intuitive to how you operate, but there can still be a learning curve.

Example: You have identified the need to track and record your Time using Toggl.  It is very important to then schedule training sessions to watch tutorials, practice with the new app and learn it’s full functionality before assuming you’re good to go!

Create Habits

Create Habits — Just because you have tools doesn’t mean you’ll automatically remember to use them!

Example: You want to have automated postings scheduled in Buffer to relay to all your Social Medias.  You must develop the habit of weekly and/or monthly scheduling time to sit down and add content.

Choose One At A Time

Choose One at a Time — there are over 1.6 million applications available at the app store (and growing!). Acknowledge that although technology is moving quickly it is important to take a step back and go at your own pace.

Example: You have identified that you would benefit from several apps — they all can’t be learned in a day unless that is what you’re choosing to spend your time doing. Take it slow, prioritize and schedule it in!
