How to Simplify and Automate life

I’m always looking for ways to make my life simpler. Left to my own devices, my desktop is always a mess, my inbox in overflowing with useless emails, and my file are saved all over the place. Its not that I don’t care, I love order as much as the next guy, its just, I could be doing something much more valuable with my time.

This has lead me to a never ending search for technology that can simplify, and automate all the tasks that I hate doing. Even better, in most circumstances it has actually given me a strategic advantage over my piers.

My constant testing of software, apps and technologies have lead me to discover some gems over the years. Advances in hardware and software has brought big corporate business solutions in reach of everybody and the best of all is most of this software is free, or at least there is a free version of the software around.

In the following weeks I’m going to be sharing some of the technologies that have impacted my life positively. No need for you to try out 10 different apps to solve a problem, I will write a post on each problem that I have had to solve for myself and review the best solutions that I have discovered and tested.

Your participation’s will be greatly appreciated, please share your experiences and recommendations with me and the readers so that we can all simplify our lives together.

    I think for me, I’m finding more ways as I use it more to use Outlook to simplify my life. It’s not just email.

    I greatly appreciate and am waiting for your shares. I’ve quit trying out different applications a while ago, because of limited time. I try to use portable apps as much as possible to prevent a crowded desktop and Windows registry.

    i need something to post “understandable” updates to all my twitter, facebook profile and page, digg , stumble upon….etc

    by understandable i mean like for example not just posting a link with (or without) a title to facebook and thats that . i need it to eneter the url in the link field so that the updates shows with a thumbnail and everything. do you know of anything like that

    ping.fm doesnt help. it just posts minimal updates with no sort of formatting or anything!
