Teaching others to improve their personal productivity is big business: Tony Robbins, Stephen Covey, David Allen... they and others have turned improving individual productivity into a massive industry. While adopting a complete productivity system is admirable, most of us find small, simple and direct ways to help ourselves find elusive productivity. Discuss an app that you use regularly to assist your own personal productivity and share an image, web page, or YouTube video that highlights that app.
