Entry #1: Cut Those Unhealthy Attachments



One of the great things about the rise of cloud-based software apps—aside from Angry Birds—is the huge improvements in productivity tools we now have at our disposal.

We moved away from using “legacy software” like Microsoft Word and Outlook, which means we also cut out confusing email attachments (you know when you’re collaborating on a proposal and everyone emails their updated file and you save 8 versions… then later on you can’t remember which files you can delete & which one is the most accurate?), non-compatible file types, version updates—I could go on.

Now, we use Google Apps and Google Drive for email, calendars and document management—the file synchronization, integrated version control, and real-time multi-user document collaboration make for huge productivity gains: no more ‘document_v3_dec20_final.doc‘ email attachments—and no more wasted time!

Hope this helps,
