About

Productivity501 is a site dedicated to bringing you regular tips and tricks to help increase your personal productivity. This site focuses on original content so the publication schedule is a little slower than other blogs out there. Generally we try to have at least one new article each week, but the focus is on posting when we have something that will benefit our readers.

Author:

Mark Shead – I help companies use technology to enable their business ideas. While this usually involves software engineering, some of the biggest challenges come in creating ways of working that will give the best return on investment. This blog is a place where I can share ideas that help me be more effective in my practice that (hopefully) will be useful to others as well. Most of my formal education has been in music composition and software engineering.
