  • Our Top 10 Mac and Windows Productivity Apps And The “10X Rule” (TPS247)

In today’s episode, we are going to get super-tactical. A question we get asked all the time is “what are your favorite apps?”, or “what is the best app for X?”

Today we’re going to start a 3-part series going through our favorite apps, devices, and tools that make us more productive or just plain improve our lives — and we’ll start in this episode with our top 10 apps for the computer.
