Productivity Tools: what works for me

Last edited 2nd September 2020

Tools product design

Pomodoro

Pros

  • really helps with focus

Cons

  • not that flexible, doesn't really help with tasks that have an inherit wait time (like waiting for builds to finish)

Examples

Backlog tools

Pros

  • good for seeing things at a glance

Cons

  • things can wither away if there's no mechanism for setting deadlines and notifications

Examples

  • Backlog
  • Notion
