Tips for Life in a Mobile Office
Tuesday, February 1, 2011
If you’re like me, you’ve become increasingly dependent on your mobile devices. Technology is a wonderful thing, but it often means you’re working places other than your office. And for those times you’re not near the comforts of your cubicle—riding in a cab, standing in line at airport security, waiting to go into a meeting—mobile options need to be easy and fast. Here are a few tips I’ve found to help you keep things moving:
Sync your devices
Most of your mobile devices can be synced to each other. For instance, there are easy ways to read your email on your mobile phone, which helps a lot when using one over the other. Learn more about how to sync devices from About.com.
Know your work style
Are you better at working in short bursts or when you have a few hours to dedicate? Knowing your work style can help you make better use of the time you spend completing tasks. Take this fun workstyle quiz from Monster.com to see how you work best.
Mobile working can be hectic; you’re always on a deadline and the work is never done. Double-check those emails for typos and grammar, make sure you attach documents, and keep your calendar organized.
