Get It Done Day and Office 365 help balance life’s demands

On Thursday, share your stories about how technology helps you accomplish life’s tasks and be part of the aptly-named Get It Done Day.

No matter where you are — the office, airport or the gym — the need to get things done away from the office has never been greater.

As the lines between life and work blur, more than half (55 percent) of office workers say they need to be able to get work done no matter where they are, and more than one-third (37 percent) said they do their best thinking outside the office, according to a recent study conducted online of 1,000 U.S. office workers by Harris Interactive Inc. on behalf of Microsoft.

“The Harris survey brings to light compelling points about what people expect and what they would be willing to give up to accomplish more in a day,” said John Case, corporate vice president for Microsoft Office. “That’s where Microsoft Office 365 can help. Taking on the ‘enemies of done,’ from lack of Wi-Fi to that important document you need to send now that’s on your computer at home, Office 365 is productivity reimagined and way beyond anything else in its class. It is much more than just the Office used by a billion people around the world. This is the new Office, for the new world of work and play.”

People can tweet using #GetItDone to share with others where they collaborate when they are away from the office. Get inspiration from the Office 365 Facebook and Twitter, which carry more stories about how people and companies are coming together to get things done, anywhere and anytime.
