A few weeks back I went ahead and signed up for IFTTT – If This Then That.  I had looked at it a few times but never saw a benefit for me.  After signing up, I had them send me a daily “recipe” that other people use.  I have found several that I thought would benefit me or other people I know.

As an example of what this site does, I have a recipe that if I miss a call on my cell phone a ToDo item will be created at ToDoist and show up as a task for me to complete.  One of the other recipes I use is to automatically display the current weather to on my phone at 3:15am so I can be prepared for the weather for the day.  There are tons of recipes available to help automate tasks in your life.  I have barely scratched the surface and hope that I can begin to utilize it more this year.
