Use Technology to Your Advantage

There are so many tools you can use to organise yourself and increase productivity that you can get nothing done trying to work them all out. Few tips when creating a new system for life or ministry:
– ask your peers what they use
– what technology do you have available right now?
– what can you afford? A couple of apps for your iPhone can sometimes so the job you need. E.g. I now use JotNot for scanning and faxing documents. Cost me $7.99 on the iPhone App Store but saved me from buying a fax machine!
– what’s free? I use a free WordPress blog for my sermon illustrations I want to store for future use.
– what can you combine for maximum awesomeness?! Today I took a photo of a page from a book I’m reading with Jotnot, sent it to Google Docs to work it’s OCR magic then copied the text into a blog post on my illustrations blog and did it all from my iPhone :). Awesome!

Final tip: work out what it is you want to do and ask someone who is more savvy than you. Comment below and I’ll help any way I can.
