Feeling unproductive? Clean up your digital workspace.
 
Greetings, Ninja!

Have we reached a tech tool tipping point? For every job-related task, there’s an app for it. But despite how powerful they are, they often feel like remote islands. And the result? We end up swimming in a sea of tabs.

So how do we stay afloat?

More tech tools, of course!

We’ve found three new apps that will help bring order to any chaotic digital workstation. The best part? Each tool offers a free version, so you can test it out before diving in head first.

Rock on!

Communicating is a key skill for every Ninja
 
The Secret to Managing Up? Over-Communicating [MANAGEMENT]
Over-communication might seem like overkill—your boss only has so much time. But it’s key to managing up and avoiding unfortunate surprises down the line. And by keeping it simple, syncing early and often, and being okay sharing bad news, you’ll master this powerful skill.

 
The Art of Making the Complex Understandable [COMMUNICATION]
As a resident office expert, it’s easy to fall prey to the "curse of knowledge" when trying to explain info to others. Reverse the curse by taking an audience-centric approach. From deconstruction to backward mapping, give these six communication strategies a try.

 
To Be a Better Problem Solver, Think Like a Programmer [PROBLEM SOLVING]
Most Ninjas aren’t programmers—but you don’t need to be to solve problems like one. Taking a page from their systematic approach can help you resolve the thorniest of issues, no matter your industry. And it’s a mindset that only takes four simple steps (and practice!) to master.

 
Communication Debt: What It Is and How to Avoid It [PRODUCTIVITY]
