January 4, 2021 Content Chat Recap: Digital Productivity Tips And Tools for 2021

A #ContentChat header image saying today's topic is digital productivity tips and tools, with guest Deb Lee.

January is often a busy time for marketers as they set their goals, develop plans, and get to work on the new year’s projects. Before you dive right back into your usual workflow, though, the start of the year is a valuable time to reset your workspace, review the tools you use, and find new ways to work more efficiently.

In this #ContentChat, we’re joined by Deb Lee, digital productivity consultant, to discuss how marketers can reset for the new year, with a specific look at the tools and best practices to boost productivity. Read the full chat recap below, where we explore our favorite workplace tools, ways to set more realistic goals, and tips for optimizing your workflow.

Q1: The start of a new year is a great time to declutter. What do you recommend marketers do at the start of the year to reset physical or digital workspace (think anything from reviewing email lists to file management)?

To refresh your physical space, clean it up and remove any trash, keep your most-needed items within reach, and make it a daily habit to reset your space for the next day.

A1. Physical space.

a) Get rid of items that are obviously trash.

b) Only keep what is needed at your fingertips on your prime real estate (your desk).

c) Make a reasonable plan you can keep up with to reset your desk at the end of *every* day. #ContentChat #GetOrganized

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A1a From my personal experience, decluttering your workspace area can have a huge impact on your productivity. I think it is something we tend to neglect, so the end of year is a good time to tackle that! #ContentChat

β€” Derek Pillie 🎯 (@derekpillie) January 4, 2021

A1 Clean your desk, switch over physical calendars (if you’ve got one), update your planner, go through recurring events on your calendar and update them according to priority and if they’re still needed, etc

To refresh your digital space, first look at your files. Remove any duplicates, create a naming convention for all files, and delete or organize any clutter from your computer and smartphone. If you’ve been saving resources for content ideas or work purposes, build them into your content strategy and then store them in an easily-accessible place for future reference.

A1. Digital space [1/3] — FILES

a) Get rid of duplicates! (no, you don’t need them #seriously)

b) Create a simple naming convention for all digital files.

c) Remove digital clutter from your desktop & home screen of your smartphone. #ContentChat #DigitalProductivity

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

It’s always surprising how few people (and organizations for that matter) have a process for file naming. But it’s critical for ease of finding and sharing important files with your team! #ContentChat

β€” Erika Heald | Content Marketing Expert (@SFerika) January 4, 2021

A1. I cleaned all the crap off my digital desktop: deleted all those screenshots I’d already put in presentations and gave proper filenames to the stuff I wanted to keep. #contentchat https://t.co/Lu3IxlP7uU

β€” Carmen Hill 😷 (@carmenhill) January 4, 2021

In Google Docs I’ll sometimes add search words at the top of the doc to increase search functionality. This includes terms that I or my colleagues use (simple differences like media FAQ vs press FAQ). That way it’s more likely someone can find it. #ContentChat

β€” Alek Irvin (@AlekIrvin) January 4, 2021

Review any saved newsletters, articles, or resources that have been gathering dust and build the insights into your content strategy for the year. Contact/connect with folks whose ideas stand out. Discard anything that doesn’t.

β€” Consummate Prose Consulting (@ConsummateProse) January 4, 2021

Next, review your emails and email management practices. Schedule time to read/respond to emails, use keyword search to find important emails, and spend a limited amount of time to reach “Inbox Zero” (if possible).

A1. Digital space [2/3] — EMAIL

d) Schedule 2-3 times/day to reply to messages.

e) Forget #InboxZero & use keywords to search. Or, keep Inbox Zero BUT limit the time you take to clean it up.

f) Daily actions: Do, Delete, Delegate, Delay. #ContentChat DigitalProductivity

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A1: A few things I do at the start of each year:
– Email: get to 0 unread messages, review email subscriptions and unsubscribe from anything that no longer sparks joy or provides value
– File mgmt: I start new GDrive folders for the corresponding year#ContentChat

β€” Alek Irvin (@AlekIrvin) January 4, 2021

Now, find ways to limit your distractions. Apps like Rescue Time can show how often you are using your phone, and turn off notifications when possible so your focus is uninterrupted.

A1. Digital space [3/3] — DISTRACTIONS

a) Use an app like @RescueTime (or native app on your smartphone) to track how much your phone is distracting you. E.g., # pickups per hour? πŸ™„

b) Turn off notifications *everywhere* during deep work! #ContentChat #DigitalProductivity

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

In regards to b), I’d offer that you should be very selective about the notifications you turn back on. My phone only notifies me of texts, phone calls, and calendar reminders. #ContentChat

β€” John Cloonan (@johncloonan) January 4, 2021

Some other ideas from the community include creating a to-do/daily task list (ideally with a digital tool, if preferred) and optimizing it for efficiency…

A1: Besides decluttering my physical office space (clean office = clean mind), I also like to look at my to-do and daily task setup in @trello and see if there are ways I can optimize it for the New Year or make my workflow more efficient. #contentchat

β€” Melanie Graham (@WriterGirlMel) January 4, 2021

A1: I tend to do 2 things. I make a point of cleaning my desk, and I evaluate the sections in my Tul notebook. #ContentChat

β€” John Cloonan (@johncloonan) January 4, 2021

Reviewing your online communities…

A1b Another area that I think that can get ignored is your personal community. End of year historically has been a good time for me to assess who I’m following and why, and who isn’t really adding value. #ContentChat

β€” Derek Pillie 🎯 (@derekpillie) January 4, 2021

Using different internet browsers for work and personal needs…

A1: Switching the default browser from Chrome to Safari – at least trying to do personal things on Safari now. Unsure what results it will bring, but certainly migrating the bookmarks tossed many of them away… #ContentChat

β€” BegayaCat (@Begaya) January 4, 2021

Or taping paper on your desk each week for notes, doodles, etc., and transferin any outstanding items over to the next week’s sheet.

#ContentChat

A1. Tape an A3 sheet of paper to your desk each Monday morning. Use it for doodles, notes and scribbles. At the end of the week put the outstanding points on next week’s sheet and scrap this week’s.

Oh, and make sure chocolate is within easy reach at all times.

β€” Luc Benyon (@HanburySt) January 4, 2021

Whatever approaches you try, be sure to reflect on the previous year and make a plan to address any shortcomings or inefficiencies. The problems will only get worse the longer you wait to address them.

A1. Assess. Take a look back at the past year … shield your eyes from the blinding sting of 2020! 😡

Continue with what worked & capitalize on them. Learn from what didn’t work so you can make a solid plan for 2021. #ContentChat #Productivity

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A1: Do an inventory of FY20 – clean your workspaces, files, review what worked vs. what didn’t, change location space, use block scheduling. I like to change it up often. #ContentChat https://t.co/s8bQfbY93I

β€” Megan Ingram┃#YourBrandYourStory (@thedataoutlier) January 4, 2021

Q2: Remote work is here to stay, and teams need a way to stay connected despite physical distance. What collaboration tools should marketers use to chat with team members and/or manage their workflows?

The community shares a handful of their favorites below, including Evernote for note-taking…

A2. @Evernote users can use Work Chat to collab without leaving the app. More: https://t.co/NWRMmumfed #ContentChat #DigitalProductivity #ProductvityTools

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

I’m a huge fan of @Evernote and have been using it for years to keep myself organized and the sources I want to quote at-hand. #ContentChat

β€” Erika Heald | Content Marketing Expert (@SFerika) January 4, 2021

Basecamp for project management and team communication…

A2: @WriterGirlAssoc has been 100% remote from the start, so we rely a lot on collab tools including @basecamp, where we communicate every bit of a project. We also chat through @zoom_us and @Skype. I’m also a fan of @SlackHQ and all the integrations. #contentchat

β€” Melanie Graham (@WriterGirlMel) January 4, 2021

The integrations are the glue that holds all the workflows together. Loving @Basecamp right now and it’s integrations with Google Cal. #contentchat

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

Any.do, Trello, Asana, Wrike, ClickUp, Airtable, Todoist, Redbooth, and Monday.com for team collaboration and project management…

A2. @Anydo is great for collabing on tasks. To collaborate on projects and keep track of workflow steps, @basecamp, @trello, @asana, @wrike, @clickup, @airtable, & @mondaydotcom can help. #ContentChat #DigitalProductivity #ProductvityTools

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A2: I don’t work with many teams, but I do like Slack (despite today’s minor glitch!) and also have worked with Asana, which I believe could be super useful for bigger teams! #ContentChat

β€” BegayaCat (@Begaya) January 4, 2021

Slack and Trello are my favourite tools for workflow and communication. No point over complicating it. The rest is done on g-suite #contentchat

β€” Abdul Shakur 🏑 Property (@AbdulShakurLdn) January 4, 2021

A2: There’s so many out there! We use @Skype, @trello, @clickup, and Google. You need to find what works for you. #ContentChat

β€” Squadhelp (@squadhelp) January 4, 2021

A2: Whichever one your team will use. We use @todoist for project management, and email and text for messaging. Your mileage may vary. #ContentChat

β€” John Cloonan (@johncloonan) January 4, 2021

A2: My personal collaboration toolbox includes @evernote, @RedboothHQ, @TeamVideoapp, and @SlackHQ #ContentChat https://t.co/Eusy6FCYFz

β€” Erika Heald | Content Marketing Expert (@SFerika) January 4, 2021

Slack, Skype, and Google Apps for staying connected…

A2. @SlackHQ and @Google Apps are my favorite ways to stay connected and on the same page with clients. I use Asana for work flow and managing processes. #ContentChat

β€” Rebekah Bibee (@BekahBibee) January 4, 2021

A2 Shared online calendars/notepads/etc, there are loads of great options from group texts to Google Meet to keep in touch with your team in real time
-Alyx #contentchat https://t.co/s3Dqo3uhye

β€” Charlie Appel Agency (@ColfaxInsurance) January 4, 2021

And Agorapulse, MeetEdgar, or Sprout Social for social media.

A2: Tools I like for managing digital workflows…
πŸ‘‰ @zoom_us video chat
πŸ‘‰ @airtable manage content workflows
πŸ‘‰ @SlackHQ manage communications
πŸ‘‰ @Agorapulse manage SM
πŸ‘‰ @asana PM#contentchat https://t.co/FHtDmzgvbR

β€” Megan Ingram┃#YourBrandYourStory (@thedataoutlier) January 4, 2021

This is just a glimpse of the tools we use, and there are countless more you can try. We recommend that you agree on a suite of tools that your team will use, each with a specific purpose. Also, ask your team how they prefer to stay connected so you can better document how each tool should be used.

A2. The best tools are the ones people actually use. If your org is on Teams, use that. If it’s Slack, use that. Best to agree on one place, though. Otherwise, you spend too much time trying to remember where that collaboration happened & is documented. #contentchat https://t.co/427uZoLHqY

β€” Carmen Hill 😷 (@carmenhill) January 4, 2021

Couldn’t agree more! And I also find it helpful to connect with your team members to find out their preferred communication method. Some may prefer a text vs. a Skype For example, message for something urgent. #contentchat https://t.co/K5WHSSbFs8

β€” Melanie Graham (@WriterGirlMel) January 4, 2021

And, please remember that many meetings can be handled with a simple call, email, or message. Your team will appreciate you respecting their time.

A2. Not all meetings are necessary and when they are, only specific people need to be present (not everyone). If the meeting can be eliminated by a quick call or @Slackhq message, do that instead. #ContentChat #DigitalProductivity #ProductvityTools

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

Q3: What mobile phone apps are best for keeping marketing pros productive?

Many of the tools we recommend above have mobile apps, and you should check if your favorite tool has an app, too!

Not mentioned above: Lastpass is an incredible resource for password management. Focus Keeper is a time management app that has a 4.8 rating on the iTunes app store based on 15,700+ reviews.

Check out all the recommendations below, and let us know your favorite mobile apps for productivity in the comments.

A3. @Lastpass is great for keeping track of passwords. No more sticky notes your laptop! πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ’» #ContentChat #DigitalProductivity #ProductvityTools

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A3. Some of my fave productivity apps are @evernote, @rescuetime, and @basecamp. Others like @focuskeeper can help you stay on task. #ContentChat #DigitalProductivity #ProductvityTools

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A3. Don’t waste time trying to figure out when to meet. Use @GoogleCalendar’s β€œFind a time” feature or scheduling tools like @Acuity, @Calendly, or @undockhq. #ContentChat #DigitalProductivity #ProductvityTools

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A3: Truthfully, I try to keep work off my phone. And social media. So, I guess my calendar? It is nice to have the @trello app handy if I think of something for my to-do list, though. #contentchat

β€” Melanie Graham (@WriterGirlMel) January 4, 2021

A3: My marketing mobile go to’s include @googledocs @evernote @googleanalytics @clockify @hootsuite #ContentChat https://t.co/QSJFU3ehNl

β€” Megan Ingram┃#YourBrandYourStory (@thedataoutlier) January 4, 2021

A3: Google owns my soul.

Google Voice for my business phone.

Google Calendar keeps my day straight.

That and @todoist keep me rolling. And of course, BlueMail. #ContentChat

β€” John Cloonan (@johncloonan) January 4, 2021

A3: I don’t use a ton of apps on my phone thanks to working from the home office. But having the Google drive apps has come in handy for quick reviews on-the-go. #ContentChat https://t.co/KfVC0F7duC

β€” Erika Heald | Content Marketing Expert (@SFerika) January 4, 2021

Q4: Automation tools are increasingly being used by teams to simplify their workflows. What tools do you recommend for their automation capabilities?

Zapier, If This Then That (IFTTT), Pleexy, Automate.io, Microsoft Flow, SocialPilot, ActiveCampaign, and Otter.ai all come recommended for their automation capabilities. Have you tried any of these before? Let us know your experience in the comments. Alternately, tell us your favorite tool that isn’t on this list and how it helps with your work.

A4. A few automation tools to check out include: @zapier @IFTTT @Pleexy @automate, & @MicrosoftFlow.

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A4: Right now, we’re using SocialPilot for social media automation, and ActiveCampaign for email workflows, but I’m evaluating SharpSpring, and have initially been impressed. #ContentChat

β€” John Cloonan (@johncloonan) January 4, 2021

A4 I am a fan of using @zapier for a lot of Slack + tool integrations. I’ve also been using @otter_ai to automate my meeting note-taking process. #ContentChat https://t.co/RkIfxPI0LU

β€” Erika Heald | Content Marketing Expert (@SFerika) January 4, 2021

We’ve been using Otter here, as well! Super helpful for SME interviews. #contentchat

β€” Melanie Graham (@WriterGirlMel) January 4, 2021

A4:
Website form automations (to sheets)
Slack/google integrations@Supermetrics
ETL tools like @funnel #ContentChat https://t.co/ymud7PS04M

β€” Megan Ingram┃#YourBrandYourStory (@thedataoutlier) January 4, 2021

A4. Depending on the client and the need, I use @hootsuite, @HubSpot, or @zapier for Google and FB integrations. I’ve never used Zapier with Slack, how do you like it?#ContentChat

β€” Rebekah Bibee (@BekahBibee) January 4, 2021

Q5: How do you recommend teams set more realistic goals to better set themselves up for success?

Keep a narrow focus and choose your top three goals, each of which should tie to your company’s mission/values.

A5. Narrow your focus. Choose your priority or TOP 3 goals (not your top 100). Tie them to your core mission/values for even greater impact/results. #ContentChat #Productivity #GoalSetting

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A5: In the beginning of the year, set one big, hairy, audacious goal.

Quarterly, set 1-3 smaller goals to be completed by the end of the quarter.

Anything else is a task. #ContentChat

β€” John Cloonan (@johncloonan) January 4, 2021

BHAGs can be exciting. Do you also tie your BHAG to mission or core values? #ContentChat #goalsetting

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

Damn straight! Every goal, big or small, has to forward the mission and be in alignment with the values! #ContentChat #goalsetting

β€” John Cloonan (@johncloonan) January 4, 2021

Document any goals that don’t make the top three and revisit them as your team continues its work.

A5. Put non-priority goals in a β€œparking lot” (again, @Evernote is great for this). Park them and then look back at them later (perhaps when you reassess or review progress w/ your priority goals). #ContentChat #Productivity

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

Optimize your goals by making them clear and easy to understand, with deadlines. Deb shares a great post that can guide you on setting SMART and CLEAR goals.

A5. Make sure goals are clear and easy to understand. Add deadlines! Learn about S.M.A.R.T. and C.L.E.A.R. goals here: https://t.co/09yX2M7FtU #ContentChat #Productivity #GoalSetting

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

Break larger goals down into smaller, actionable steps so you stay on track to achieve that goal.

A5. Chunk down larger goals into smaller, actionable steps. #ContentChat #Productivity #GoalSetting

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A5: Set shorter time frame goals – look at the quarter and be more targeted with what you are trying to achieve.

Instead of looking at social across 5 channels. Pick one community and set targeted KPIs for success that can be tackled during a week or month. #ContentChat https://t.co/btB0910ui5

β€” Megan Ingram┃#YourBrandYourStory (@thedataoutlier) January 4, 2021

Revisit your team’s goals from the previous year to inform your next set of goals. But, don’t fall into the trap of constantly upping your numbers if the market conditions cannot support more growth in that area.

A5: Look back and look ahead for perspective. Base your goals on historical data as well as where your organization plans to go/grow in the year. #contentchat

β€” Melanie Graham (@WriterGirlMel) January 4, 2021

A5: Don’t take last year’s goals, up them, & call it a day. Teams must reassess their goals & ask if they are the right focus. A lot has changed in the world of content, media, and events, and some things simply are no longer worthwhile (or even possible to achieve). #ContentChat

β€” Alek Irvin (@AlekIrvin) January 4, 2021

With your goals in place, ensure your team commits to using the same tools and processes to track your progress and execute on your ideas.

A5. Everyone *must* commit to using the same tools and processes or else things will not go as planned. #ContentChat #Productivity #Teamwork #GoalSetting

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

Q6: What time management tips or tricks do you use to maximize your productivity throughout the day regardless of your workload?

Before work, visualize the success you hope to achieve to keep you motivated.

A6. Before work: Try visualization. It helps me. A LOT. Thinking with the end in mind and “seeing” success before it happens can often push you forward. 🎸#rockstarmoment

Who’s gonna give it a try? #ContentChat #Productivity

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

Interesting. When I was racing, I used to spend time in the dark in my trailer visualizing the race – brake markers, turn-in-points, etc., and of course, winning.

Never thought to do it with business. #ContentChat

β€” John Cloonan (@johncloonan) January 4, 2021

Start your day by reviewing and prioritizing your to-do list, and schedule time to review emails and/or Slack messages. If you can finish a task in under 10 minutes, do it now so it is off your list.

A6: The first thing on my to-do list every day is to triage my to-do list and deprioritize anything that doesn’t have to happen that day. I then focus on knocking out the 5-10 big things that must happen. #ContentChat

β€” John Cloonan (@johncloonan) January 4, 2021

A6: I write down the 1 thing that must get done to keep me progressing towards my goal each day and make sure I do it. I also set aside specific times to look at Slack and read email versus responding in real time to notifications. I also keep set office hours. #ContentChat https://t.co/V8P8sj6DzB

β€” Erika Heald | Content Marketing Expert (@SFerika) January 4, 2021

A6: I keep a list of my tasks for the day, and anything that I can complete in under 10 minutes (without interfering with another deadline) I handle first so that I can cross it off. It helps to get those little things taken care of so they don’t use up mental space. #ContentChat

β€” Alek Irvin (@AlekIrvin) January 4, 2021

Use the Pomodoro Technique, combined with the productivity apps we recommended, to stay focused.

A6. TIP: If I’m getting a little distracted, I will use the @PomodoroTechnique — 25 min of work then 5 min break.πŸš€ Lather, rinse, repeat 4x & then take a longer 25-30 min break. And use my distraction as my REWARD.πŸŽ‰ #ContentChat #ProductivityTip #PomodoroTechnique

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A6. Pair any of the “stay focused” apps with the Pomodoro Technique and you’ll be golden.✨ #ContentChat #ProductivityTip #DigitalProductivity #PomodoroTechnique

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

Take regular breaks and eat away from your workspace if possible. Deb shares two ideas for breaks below.

A6. Perhaps not a trick but *very* helpful: Take regular breaks and eat *away* from your desk. Each of these things helps you to reset so you can focus when you get back to work. πŸ‘‰ Will share some ways to use your breaks. #ContentChat #ProductivityTips

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

Take regular breaks and don’t take calls or check messages when you start work. Get the most important things out the way first. #contentchat

β€” Abdul Shakur 🏑 Property (@AbdulShakurLdn) January 4, 2021

A6. Break idea: Exercise! A short walk, yoga, jumping jacks, quick HIIT, dance! πŸ’ƒ You’ll return to your desk with a pep in your step and be able to resist distractions a bit more. πŸ•Ί #ContentChat #ProductivityTips Next up: time mgt tips.

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A6. Break idea: Something I’ve been doing every day for the last two months is meditating. πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ As little as two minutes away from work can help me reset and give my productivity a boost. #ContentChat #ProductivityTips

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

If your motivation is low, set a timer for 10 minutes and work on a task for at least that long. If you’re not in the right mindset for that type of task by the end of the 10 minutes, simply stop and try a different task.

A6. TIP: When motivation is super low, I work on a task/project for 10 minutes. ⏰ I set a timer and just start. When the timer goes off, I can stop. But most times, though, I put in more than 10 min. #BabySteps #ContentChat #ProductivityTips

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A6b: I also recognize when I don’t have brain cells left, and use those times to knock out mindless stuff that has to be done. #ContentChat

β€” John Cloonan (@johncloonan) January 4, 2021

And at the end of each day, get organized for the next day by reviewing your to-do list and cleaning up as needed.

A6: I always get organized at the end of the day for the NEXT day. Before closing up the workday, I’ll review my to-do list and make sure it’s updated and ready for the next morning. #contentchat

β€” Melanie Graham (@WriterGirlMel) January 4, 2021

And preserve your wellbeing by following regular working hours and stopping work at a reasonable time.

A6b: With everyone working from home and on flexible schedules, it can be tempting to work all day / every day. But that’s a recipe for burnout. #ContentChat

β€” Erika Heald | Content Marketing Expert (@SFerika) January 4, 2021

Q7: What is the one physical item you’ve bought for your home office in the past year that has made the biggest difference in your ability to getβ€”and stayβ€”organized and be more productive?

Some of the recent buys that our community recommends include: external monitor, whiteboard and markers, monitor riser, standing desk, wireless earbuds, and a space heater. What physical item has improved your work-from-home setup?

A7: Three things

– I finally ponied up for a gigantic monitor.

– I bought a brand-new box of whiteboard markers in 12 colors

– I built a charging station#ContentChat

β€” John Cloonan (@johncloonan) January 4, 2021

A7: I bought a pretty monitor riser for my desk that has cubbies to hold my panners and pens, and to make sure I am not straining my neck (which I used to take care of via a monthly massage when that was a thing!) #ContentChat https://t.co/baYk6hhvG2

β€” Erika Heald | Content Marketing Expert (@SFerika) January 4, 2021

A7: Standing desk. I can change locations often and change my view in the same workspace. Sometimes just standing for a call can make all the difference in work productivity and mood. #ContentChat https://t.co/QQxKkM4PXO

β€” Megan Ingram┃#YourBrandYourStory (@thedataoutlier) January 4, 2021

A7. My 2020 productivity purchase: This may sound strange — a portable heater. πŸ”₯ I don’t like being cold. Otherwise, that’s all I think about & I’m not able to get anything done. #ContentChat #Productivity pic.twitter.com/wI0xyj30GC

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A7. The nice thing about working from home is that you can control the temp! If you share your workspace, dress in layers, or keep a sweater close by. #ContentChat #Productivity

β€” Deb Lee (@DAllisonLee) January 4, 2021

A7 Wireless earbuds. Being able to quickly get on a call without having to untangle headphone wires is a game changer. LOL #contentchat

β€” Martin Lieberman (@martinlieberman) January 4, 2021

A7: Second monitor!!! Ugh what a game changer!!! #ContentChat
