In today’s episode of Get Shit Done, A productivity column I made up just now, we’ll be looking at some ways to Get Your Life Together. While that may not sound as hold-the-phone compelling as “Pretend Your Bedroom Is A Bear Cave And You Are Hibernating” or “Drink a Fifth of Bourbon And Call Your Ex”, I assure you that there’s something to this whole productivity thing. And since Autostraddle loves you ever-so feverishly, we’ve brought a series of get-your-life-together posts in the past that aren’t to be missed. So let’s take a look back. Because hindsight is 20/20.
1. We introduced you to Flavors.me, an awesome site for curating your resume/portfolio as a “social media consultant” or a “technology guru” or whatever kind of nonsense web 2.0 specialist you’re calling yourself. I know that you whipper-snappers are all over The Facebook these days. You think I don’t know? I know.
2. Google has a ridiculous array of amazing free products for us to devour (many made during Google’s glorious/famous “20% time” for employee innovation), and we ran down a list of 5 of these you shouldn’t miss.
3. One time Kelsey wrote a post and it was about how to cope with unemployment. Secretly unemployment doesn’t start with an “f” unless that “f” stands for “totally f’ed,” which it very well may.
4. We extolled the virtues of Notational Velocity and Simplenote, great software for getting things out of your brain and onto your Tumblr/Livejournal/Semi-legitimate pseudopublication.
5. Riese just wrote up some tips on How Not to Dress for Success, and if you are a) Funemployed b) Working from home or c) Unsuitable for public consumption, these tips will get your ass out of the house/apartment/futon in no time . For all of your “is the sun setting already, I haven’t even been outside yet” agoraphobic needs!
6. Rachel and I talked to you about some awesome software we use to write, make lists and generally kick ass/take names with our 7 Best Internet Productivity Tools article, which is honestly probably the most useful thing that has or will ever happen to you within the span of the next 35 minutes.
