Quick Tip – Google Calendar and Multiple Email Addresses

By | Posts | 3 Comments

You know how much I love Google Calendar, and my obsession with Gmail? Well I can admit when something has a flaw and there is a big one with Google Calendar. Gmail lets you consolidate pretty much as many email accounts as you want and it works seamlessly, why can’t Google Calendar get on the bandwagon. Most of the time when someone sends me a calendar invite they will send it to my lessdoing.com email address because that is the one I communicate with. Unfortunately if you click on accept you’ll get a screen that basically says this is not…

Get Rid of Your To-Do List Immediately

Get Rid of Your To-Do List Immediately

By | Posts | 10 Comments

The Problem I’m going to let you in on a little secret, your to do lists are making you inefficient, stressed out, and fat…ok maybe not fat but the other two for sure. But how can this be you ask, as you look over your well organized GTD to do list on your iPad or the whiteboard on the wall with different lists of color coded things that you have today, tomorrow, next week, and every second in between? Tasks and projects have timing associated with them. They are either due on a certain date, or there are milestones along…

So this is going to sound like the opposite of efficiency but I have seven calendars in my Google Calendar and as far as I’m concerned, the more the merrier. How can this possibly be efficient you say? Each calendar is related to a very specific aspect of my life. I have my main calendar and then I have several others that usually only have a few events in them but are exteremly useful nonetheless. To create a new calendar of your own, just follow these steps: Click the drop-down arrow to the right of My calendars Select Create new calendar Enter…

This Is How We Do It: Project Management with ManyMoon

By | Posts | No Comments

[vimeo 14942409 w=640 h=360] The Problem There is no end to the list of project management tools at our disposal. Unfortunately, most of them are aimed at projects with a lot of team members instead of a two or three person team with many projects. Sometimes, you just need something simple. The Solution ManyMoon is incredibly intuitive and simple to use. The best part, it integrates directly with Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Docs. (It also works with your custom Google Apps account.) You can setup multiple projects and then assign task to the projects, attaching a relevant Google Doc…

This is How We Do It: Running Errands from My Couch

By | Posts | 3 Comments

One of the Fundamentals of Less Doing is to stop running errands. I thought it might help to go into more detail about how I use three, that’s right only three, websites to replace 90% of typical errands and ensure that I almost never run out of anything. Three of My Favorite Websites Amazon.com If you don’t know what Amazon is, then I’m not sure how you figured out how to get here. I love Amazon because they offer virtually everything under the sun that isn᾿t perishable. (If you live in Seattle, you can buy perishable goods from them as…

How to Use a Virtual Assistant: Get an Earlier Appointment with a Busy Doctor

How to Use a Virtual Assistant: Get an Earlier Appointment with a Busy Doctor

By | Posts | 2 Comments

I hate going to the doctor, but I hate it even more when I need to schedule an appointment, and my doctor isn’t available for over a month. I’ve finally figure out a way around this. Every doctor’s office has cancellations on an almost daily basis, but who wants to call in every day? I don’t, but my virtual assistans would be happy to. I decided to ask a Fancy Hands (why we like it) virtual assistant to nag my doctor’s office until they gave in, actually, until the VA got lucky and called shortly after a cancellation. Here is the template…

Fundamentals of Less Doing is a series of articles detailing how we think about productivity from a conceptual level. If you are new to Less Doing, the Fundamentals series is a great place to start. There is a hiccup that comes with this lifestyle. When you are constantly working on very specifically improving your life, tailoring everything to work for you and fit your schedule, and free yourself to do whatever you want, whenever you want…it’s easy to lose sight of the people in your life that make all that time worthwhile. Granted, for many of you that’s not necessarily…

Tips & Tricks: Progressing Beyond A Dedicated Virtual Assistant

By | Posts | 2 Comments

My virtual assistant, Christy, who has worked with me for over a year, recently got a promotion at the outsourcing company she works for and would no longer be a virtual assistant. I immediately panicked and started figuring out how I would work with a new assistant so I worked with Christy to come up with a list of all the tasks she does for me on a regular basis. In coming up with this list I realized something remarkable, 95% of the tasks could be completed without an assistant through the use of web apps or mobile applications, 4%…
