Five Signs It’s Time to Take Your Career to a Big City – Chispa Magazine
I’ve worked in cities and large towns and I have to say I didn’t enjoy it.

Saying that though, there are some careers that will only work in a big city and some people that long for the city so check out this article to see if you recognise any of the 5 signs that it’s time to up sticks.
How to Prioritize Your Inbox – NetCredit
I’ve written in the past about how you can prioritise your inbox but if you’re more of a visual person then this infographic from the guys at NetCredit shows you how interruptions from email can seriously hamper your productivity, tells you how you can minimise email interruptions and how to tame your inbox.
TimeCamp: Projects, Organized – TimeCamp
I’m currently using Toggl for my time-tracking but I do find its user-interface and the way it organises projects somewhat lacking. TimeCamp looks like it may be an interesting alternative.

I use Dropbox as a backup storage area for some of my database files – there are lots of apps that can integrate with it and it’s a great way of having files shared across computers (I use it to store my accounts database so I can access it on 2 different PCs). But, Dropbox isn’t just for file storage, you can do a lot more with it.
I used to use Evernote but became a bit overwhelmed with the amount of things it seemed to be capable of doing. I was also put off when they changed their plans so that a lot of the features I was interested in were moved from the free plan.
Saying that though, I’m sure there are a lot of you who would love to get going with Evernote again but don’t know what to do with all the odds and ends you already have saved so this article from Zapier may help you clean out Evernote and get started afresh.
