Work Smart Video: How to Stay Productive on the Road

I’ve travelled to 9 different cities already this year and I’ve got 4 different major work projects going on, so keeping on top of everything on the go is something I’ve had to get good at out of necessity. This week’s Work Smart video is a question from Daniel Beck, a work-at-homer like I am, about how to not let your whole organization system fall to pieces once you leave your (home) office. I was lucky enough to get none other than David Allen to agree to be...

Work Smart Video: How to Take Effective Meeting Notes

Work Smart Video: How to Take Effective Meeting Notes

The second season of my Work Smart video series at FastCompany.com premiered yesterday, with a question from Suhasini Kotcherlakota about how to take better meeting notes, and some answers from me and Brad Isaac, who wrote a great piece on mind-mapping meetings at Lifehacker a few years back. Despite the fact that I still can’t watch and listen to myself on film without cringing, I am so pleased with the results. Adam Barenblat at FastCompany did an amazing job on the art and design,...

Hilary Mason: How to Replace Yourself with a Very Small Shell Script

Closing the Feedback Loop

Closing the Feedback Loop

Matt Haughey says Google Buzz doesn’t offer an easy way for publishers to see what people are saying about their stuff. He’s right; as in Google Reader and Facebook, much of the liking and commenting and sharing that goes on in Buzz happens out of earshot of the creator. I think Buzz is a fine product–a pretty predictable FriendFeed clone, really–but it does suffer from this same broken loop problem that Google Reader creates. Also of interest to other publishers,...

Google Wave in Action: Real-World Use Case Studies

Google Wave in Action: Real-World Use Case Studies

A week ago I asked readers to tell me how they’re using Google Wave in their daily lives, and despite a bit of “ha! no one’s using Wave!” snarking on the Twitter, I got lots of interesting responses. Unsurprisingly, most Wavers use it as a real-time wiki, but some take advantage of features unique to Wave, like inline and private replies, public tags, and gadgets. I featured the most unique use cases I got in a brand new chapter just added to The Complete Guide...

Create a Note Card Task Board on the Cheap [DIY]

If note cards are crucial to your organization system, you may have entertained the idea of getting a task board for them—and been shut down by the cost. Scratch that idea and make your own. Brian, a programmer for organization blog Unclutterer, uses note cards for his work flow. He shopped around for a task board only to be surprised at how pricey they were. Could a board designed to do nothing more than hold 3×5 cards really be worth $40 or more? He opted to get crafty and...

The popular cross-platform file-syncing application Dropbox is a hit among Lifehacker readers, but it has one major drawback: It only syncs files placed inside the My Dropbox folder. Here’s how to get around that limitation. In order to sync files and folders that live outside the My Dropbox folder, you need to create a symbolic link between the My Dropbox folder and the folder on your drive that you want to sync. Symbolic links are sort of like shortcuts, so if you had a folder called...
