Gina Trapani at Lifehacker has posted her top ten free or cheap productivity tools.
Pen and paper tops a list in no particular order. I get the hunch that these old-fashioned tools are making a come back in the productivity market. Mike Rohde’s Back to paper post caused quite a splash a month or so ago.
Other old favourites are there too—your phone, a filing cabinet and an inbox tray.
Software doesn’t miss out entirely; Quicksilver and TextExpander earn their spots.
Why are Top Ten lists so popular? Usually you know all the things on them already, but seeing them through someone else’s eyes often helps you to see them anew. Check it out.
