The best productivity apps and tools I use everyday
I've tried over 250 applications and tools to improve my productivity at work. If I had to choose one in each category, here are my must-haves :
Project management, planning and scheduling :
Asana : for project and process management, especially in teams.
Notion : I like Notion, but I've come to use it just for me and not for collaboration.
Teuxdeux : I don't like Todo Lists, this tool has revolutionized the way we manage them.
Google Agenda : An indispensable tool for organizing my days.
Agenda Muji : For those who prefer paper, I love Muji's minimalist stationery.
Habits and routines :
Daylio : Track daily moods, routines and habits.
Day One Journal : Ideal for keeping track of your Journalling routine, with the ability to synchronize with a host of other tools, documents, photos… (I import my notes from my Remarkable).
Forest : My favorite timer for applying the Pomodoro method.
Health, sleep and sport :
Oura Ring : a ring
to rule them all to track your sleep, keep accurate statistics and give you personalized advice.
Endel : Great app with music for sleeping, working, focus, reading and more. The best I know! It can even synchronize with your heart rate if you have the Apple Watch.
Apple Health : I was using external apps before but Apple Health has evoked well and done the job.
As a content creator (writing, video, podcasts, networks…) a good workflow is essential:
Apple Note et Evernote : Most of my notes are taken on it, Evernote serves as my archive.
Ulysse : My favorite writing application since I was a student. I wrote my thesis with it, then all my books since 2011!
Sony ZV-1 : My main camera with which I now shoot most of my videos.
Micro-cravate Sony ICD TX : A dictaphone transformed into a lapel microphone that I've been using since 2017 and can't get rid of!
