IdeaJam to the rescue
My friend and fellow Notes enthusiast, Bruce Elgort has IdeaJam, a fantastic tool to tap the power of the social network to find out what's most important, most valuable, etc...
Before I took off for Manila, I wrote to Bruce and asked him if he would set up an IdeaJam space to allow me to share some of my favorite productivity tips that I have collected and allow folks to rank them in terms of value to them. Bruce came though and created the Beyond Planning IdeaJam site. He's created sections for all three categories of tips I plan to share: General, Advanced, and Executive.
The problem is that the internet here at my hotel is very slow (imagine using the internet on dial-up) so I won't be able to upload anything to the site. It would take me all day to do it from here.
I need your help for 5 minutes, today, if possible
First, please spread the word about this experiment on your blog. My internet access may be spotty so this may be something I put in motion and see what happens before I walk in stage. We'll see.
I'm looking for a few volunteers to type (cut and paste, really) productivity tips I have collected into the IdeaJam site to get the process started. This way, folks can vote on them. This could be a few hours work, but I'm sure it will be a valuable learning process to anyone up to the task.
For the rest of you, please go to the IdeaJam site and submit/vote on your favorite productivity tips in three categories:
- General - tips that will be useful to anyone; not necessarily tech tips
- Advanced - tips for the tech geek
- Executive - tips for managers, business owners, and entrepreneurs
Meanwhile, I'll work on my own lists for Saturday's presentation (your Friday) just in case this experiment in social thinking does not work out in time. If it does, I'll not only share the results at the conference I'll also share them on the blog.
What's your favorite productivity tip?
I hope you will take a moment to post it. I'm mostly working off-line right now, thanks to Notes. When/If I get to a live connection, I'll try to upload some links to tips site so that you may review what others have ranked as useful tips and them select the one or two you find most valuable and post them to ideajam
