I have struggled a lot to find a tool during the last years that can help me be more productive. The biggest challenge has been to find a tool that is syncing with all of my devices. I used Things for my iPhone and MacBook for a long time but they don’t provide me with a complete sync solution yet. I know Things are planning an update on this soon but after I started to use Evernote it’s not necessary to care more about Things. Evernote doesn’t provide me with the same great task management system as Things but Evernote has everything else in one place with 100% sync between all my devices. I can create my daily to do lists with Evernote too. (link to 3 simple points to live a more productive life).
Eliminating paper distractions
Evernote has eliminated a lot of paper distractions in my life. Evernote allows you to easily capture and store information from anywhere using whatever device you have available. Everything is then also searchable, this is super awesome!
Use your camera
Take photographs of things you want to save and remember. White board sessions, business cards, handwritten notes, notes etc. Evernote identifies the text in pictures, so it’s searchable. This is a time saver for me! I also scan and sync agreements, articles and documents to Evernote.
Take snapshots of websites
When you take a snapshot of websites you can easily read them later in a offline mode. You can use a browser extension for this. You get the whole page: text, images and links.
Keep everything in sync
With Evernote, all of your notes, web clips, files and images are made available on every device and computer you use. One cool feature is that you can share your notes and collaborate on projects with friends, colleagues and classmates. It’s important to have great tools like Evernote when you want to maximize your potential in this fast world.
Big thanks to the Evernote team!
