Microsoft has just released an all new version of Outlook for Mac, the productivity application for managing email, calendars, address books, and more—and we’ve got a first look course ready to get you up and running with this new version.
The course will be useful for new users. But if you’re upgrading from Outlook 2011, this transition is going to be really easy for you; the new version of Outlook for Mac has barely changed at all compared to Outlook 2011.

Halloween’s over—which mean’s the holiday season is rushing towards us like a freight train.
Between our busy personal and professional lives, the end-of-the-year frenzy makes it all too easy to drop a few balls here and there.
But if you’ve got a smartphone, it’s easy to alleviate some holiday chaos. Evernote provides a great way to channel your ideas into actions, and help keep your holiday season on the rails.

Here’s an odd truth: The very routines that make your day bearable are killing your creative capacity.
We all rely on thousands of daily routines to navigate our basic tasks: the order of our morning routines, the clothes we choose to wear, the place where we buy our morning coffee, the route we drive to work, the people with whom we eat lunch, and so on.
The result? Decreased creative thought. The more we rely on our automatic processes, the less we are actually thinking something through; there’s no real opportunity for new insight.
But you can change that.

If you’re like most people, you’re always on the hunt for the perfect app—the one that does everything. The one that will finally replace all your other apps that do … well, almost everything.
This week on Monday Productivity Pointers, I’m here to take the pressure off. It’s perfectly OK to use multiple apps that do almost the same things. I’m going to show you how I use three apps to manage my daily to-dos.

Ever since we started developing our Typing Fundamentals course, several of us in the Business segment at lynda.com have been holding group typing tests to compete for highest words per minute. (The record is 92 words per minute; can you top it?)
My working hypothesis has long been that quick typing is a key differentiator for the folks who get the most done at work.
