Even though it has been almost two years of working from home, India Inc. still faces challenges when trying to define work and life boundaries when managing tasks and time. This inability to manage time followed by the feeling of constant burnout has been gravely impacting their mental health.
With the Internet acting as an enabler, it can also play an important role in defining and adhering to timelines while also ensuring constant collaboration with teammates. Understanding challenges the Indian corporate is facing today, there are a lot of apps, software, and platforms that have come up that can play a pivotal role in redefining and helping you manage your time as well as tasks in a more efficient and timely manner. To name a few platforms to help you manage time are:
- Promodo: This platform gives you 25 minutes of work time and 5 minutes of break to make sure you are moving around and when you work, you are working with focus. This is being used by a major chunk of the population to ensure extreme focus and productive 25 minutes
- Asana: WFH is synonymous to micro-managing and platforms like Asana are making it possible. Here you and your team can note down your tasks, and will give you the liberty to even divide tasks and set a timeline for the same. It also acts as a constant reminder and will keep your team posted on the progress made on the tasks assigned. Trello is another such app where you will be able to do organised work, every single part of your task can be managed, tracked, and shared with teammates.
- Minimalist: Minimalist is a Pomodoro timer app for people who like a sleek, modern look. When you open the app, you’re taken to a blank white screen. From there, you can swipe down to add new tasks. You can assign due dates to each task and also give the task a priority, from low to high. High priority tasks are raised up to the top of your screen. Then you can click on the task and Minimalist takes you to another mostly white screen with a thin black circle that works as your Pomodoro timer.
