Doodle: Easy Scheduling
As days pass, we are always caught in the illusion of being busy. But the reality is not being able to manage our time effectively.
Usually, when we are doing a full-time job or building a business, we have to get through multiple meetings every day. When you have a team of multiple people working together on something or probably multiple clients. It sometimes gets overwhelming to schedule a meeting where everybody’s time fits in properly.
I had heard about the Doodle app from the Tim Ferriss – 4 Hour work week book. However, I recently discovered that they have a mobile app as well now. Both for iOS and Android. Which makes it super easy now to schedule a meeting.
What you need to do is just open this app and create an event with multiple times slots showing your availability and then that’s it. A URL is created having meeting details and your open time slots. Forward this URL to People and they can just book any time slot available as per their schedule which matches everyone’s open time slots.
Otherwise, this kind of scheduling might involve calling all the invitees individually and asking for their time slots and then putting a meeting invite. Doodle solves that problem with 3-4 taps on this app.
Just in case if I got you curious, you can go check out this app –

It was a grey day rather evening should I say.
My body was drained out of the juice and I wanted to sit somewhere immediately.
That was when I heard a scratching sound which came from an old abandoned house from the left side of the street.
In this tiring condition I would never have turned my head towards this house which was rustic and strangely terrifying.
I saw there was a spiral staircase going up to first floor and then second floor subsequently.
There was something strange towards these stairs which was inviting, in a weird way….Read more

Rustic mystery! . It was a grey day rather evening should I say. . My body was drained out of the juice and I wanted to sit somewhere immediately. . That was when I heard a scratching sound which came from an old abandoned house from the left side of the street. . In this tiring condition I would never have turned my head towards this house which was rustic and strangely terrifying. . I saw there was a spiral staircase going up to first floor and then second floor subsequently. . There was something strange towards these stairs which was inviting, in a weird way. . Outer gate was open. Due to the rush of curiosity my tiredness was gone and I forgot about my body for sometime. . I couldn’t resist and went inside the outer boundary of this house. As I drew closer, the feeling of this strange pull was increasing in intensity. . I was hypnotised?I don’t know. But I was definitely not going inside on my own. . I moved closer towards the spiral staircase. As I clutched the old and rusty railing, my mind lit up and I felt like I was in a parallel universe. It was completely vivid. . The scene felt like 60s. I saw a few english chaps in front of the house and the house wasn’t rustic anymore. It was well painted and maintained house of an english colony. Then I saw a lady was standing at the gate of the 1st floor door, while I was at the start of the spiral staircase. . The lady was beautiful, but her face was expression less. In fact she seemed like a person from whom the life has been sucked out. . She pointed her finger towards me and signalled me to come up. . I felt so strong of an urge to go up immediately. . ‘Hey Boy, what the hell are you doing here? How did you get in?’, I heard this and I was back to reality. Standing just half way of the stairs between ground and first floor, i said, ‘Huh?’ As I got my wits together. . I realized I had a hard grip on the stairs rail and it was rustic and scary again. . ‘This house is spirited boy. Get out and never go back in ever again.’ He shouted again and went back in. I suddenly realised I was inside the house and outer gate was shut with a lock. . ‘How did I get in?’ I asked my terrified self as I jumped over the wall.
