Save System Resources & Productivity With This Chrome Extension

Save System Resources & Productivity With This Chrome Extension

 

I currently have over 66 tabs on 3 different Chrome browser windows. This led to me having crashes and sluggish performance before I found the Great Suspender extension in the Chrome web store. If you are like me and want to stop having your browser crash, freeze or worse yet become sluggish install this extension now.

What I Love About It

  • Frees up system resources – RAM (Memory) and CPU usage.
  • Stops Chrome from crashing and freezing
  • You can automatically suspend tabs
  • You can tell it for how long you want to suspend a tab or if you don’t want it suspended at all
  • Even when your browser closes out completely the suspended tabs come back up on reboot

It’s a new year and time to evaluate some of the systems you have been using. In this month’s podcast I discuss whether or not you are asking and answering yourself the right question when it comes to getting a new app or implementing a new piece of software or system for your business and how this helps you avoid the trap of the bright shiny object syndrome.  Listen in!

Show Notes:

Don’t fall for “shiny object” syndrome! Focus on what problem does this solve for me right now in my business that this can help NOW.

  • Ask yourself “What can I use this app or software for right now?”

I am back! Let’s get this party train rolling. This week I talk about how to avoid app overwhelm and finding what works best for you. Listen in!

Show Notes:

With so many apps out there how do you know where to start? What’s the best for you? Here are some quick tips to help you overcome app overwhelm.

  1. Pick 3 or 4 apps to start.
  2. Learn how to use throroughly. You can take a live class, read, or go to Youtube. Trial and error has also been of great help to me when learning new things.
  3. 30 days please! Tak 30 days to try out the app. This gives you plenty of time to see how it works in your life and business.
  4. Re-evaluate. After your 30 days it is time to evaluate what is working and what is not working. If you find that the app is not for you or you didn’t like it then delete it. Don’t just let it sit and linger on your phone or tablet. If you have found that it works for you and you like it then keep it and don’t go looking any futher.
  5. Stay focused! Avoid the “bright shiny object” syndrome. If you have found an app that works for you then stick with it. Don’t go looking for better, because there is always better out there. If someone mentions some new app, make note of it, but don’t go rush to download it and try it out. Stick with what is working for you.
  6. Bonus Tip: Group your apps into catergories. For example: Business, Spiritual, Reading, Email, Finance. You get the picture. Also you want to keep your most used and important apps on the front screen of your phone or tablet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tidbit Tuesday: Update Those Apps!

Tidbit Tuesday: Update Those Apps!

20130903-165840.jpg

Today I want to talk with you about updating your apps. That little number that you see beside the apps icon on your iPhone or iPad means that there are updates.

It only takes a few seconds to update your apps. Don’t wait until it gets to needing 24 or more apps that need to be updated. Because that will take longer and you will need to be on wifi as not to drain down your data allowance with your cell company.

When you have updates to your apps it is usually important and helps the app to run better. If you find that your favorite app keeps shutting down then a update may be the reason why it is not functioning correctly.

So go update those apps! And keep them updated. This is one habit that will help you in the long run. It doesn’t take a ton of time if you do them when you see the little update icon. You should also regularly update your computer too. If it says update then update it!
