How to Make The Most of Asana for Your Team

Tips for Staying Productive in An Open Office

Let’s start by stating the obvious: open offices matter. After all, there’s plenty of achieving and believing that goes on when the work environment is open and accessible to all. Equally, however, there remains the risk of losing time, energy, motivation, and patience when the productivity ratio—you know, output over input—is off.

How to Fall In Love with Your Productivity Routine

I’m willing to bet any amount of money (okay, $20 at most) that “Be more productive” was somewhere on your list of new year’s resolutions for 2018. Honestly, it’s the type of resolution that ends up on nearly everybody’s list, almost every single year. So why is productivity one of those things that we seem to be forever chasing, but never able to truly achieve?

2018 Is The Year To Set Goals You Can Actually Achieve

2018 is almost here, and let’s face it, there is a lot of pressure to set goals—or at least attempt to. While personal and professional motivations for goal-setting vary, the data shows us that they tend to work, when done right. In fact, when we are thoughtful about the way we set goals, we thrive on the motivation they provide.

How to Use Slack More Efficiently

If you’ve ever used any type of online workspace for teams, chances are you’ve heard of Slack. Much like other digital mediums of its kind, Slack allows teams to collaborate, communicate, share, plan, celebrate, and do nearly whatever else it takes to get stuff done—together. However, if your team is spread across the country, globe, or even companies (yes, companies), you’ll appreciate the innovative collaboration features Slack offers for keeping you and those you’re working with connected and productive.

Optimizing Your Inbox With the Boomerang Extension

There’s a running joke around the Shift office that everyone is always productive—except when they’re not. haha. No, but seriously, unproductivity happens to the best of us. So, to better understand the root causes of our team’s (rare) unproductiveness, we took a poll. Can you guess what the biggest culprit ended up being? Yep, email. But not just email in general. Specifically, the inbox.

How to Use Emojis On Your Desktop, Like A Boss

Emojis are life! Literally. Anyone who begs to differ clearly isn’t aware that emoji users around the world manage to share upwards of 6 billion emojis per day. That’s a lot of emoji power. The quiet strength of these everybody-friendly picture characters lies in their multifunctionality. Not to mention, they’re super relatable and relative to the human experience.
