As an executive, your day-to-day schedule is packed with meetings, tasks, to do's, and more. While Google Calendar saves us from becoming unorganized or unprepared for most of our scheduling woes, there are a number of easy tools to help you keep track of all your action items for the day. Here are five time management tools that can assist the busy executive: 

Calendly is a platform built to ease the stress of scheduling. Whether you are scheduling meetings, phone calls, lunches, or video chats,  Calendly syncs to your selected calendars and provides a link you can send to your contacts (or include in your signature) with days and times you are available. Calendly displays your availability, sends a calendar invite to the other person, and once they've selected a time, Calendly automatically schedules it to your synced calendars when confirmed.
