This is one persons utilization of Evernote to keep their life organized.
- A master list of everything that they have to do in their life. Work, personal, etc. They still maintain a daily list, but this is their overarching document.
- Create a packing list for trips, if you travel often have a master list like warm places packing, cold places packing, leisure, family, etc.
- Keep a list of long term goals, even adding photos etc, to make it more visually interesting.
- Scan important papers, receipts, business cards, etc.
- Use evernote e-mail address to subscribe to newsletters so they don’t clutter up your inbox
- Clip web pages to read later
- Make digital post it notes so that brainstorms are not lost later and work is not interrupted
- Pick meals from a master list of favorite recipes
- Keep a running grocery list
*The first few items seem silly, I can use any word/pages document even the notes function of my phone/ipad for making, keeping and maintaining master lists. Scanning important documents, okay that might be useful. Clipping web pages to read later, I do that with instapaper but it is a useful function of evernote. Make digital post it notes, that can be useful if you have evernote integrated into your work computer. Picking meals from a master list, this is a great tip, I think I’ll make one on pages. Keep a running grocery list? Again that’s what I have Notes for on my phone, and why is syncs up to my ipad. On a more practical note I was just checking why I stopped using evernote and here it is: Sync across 2 devices If I want to sync my notes on more than 2 devices I have to pay evernote $35 per year. (the ‘evernote e-mail’ thing also requires the ‘Plus’ subscription.) Admittedly $35 per year is not that much in digital terms, but when you can do barely more than my already included with purchase, or free apps then why should I pay you $35 a year? Let alone the $70 subscription where you can scan and digitaze the business cards. No wonder this author uses Evernote for everything you have to justify $70 a year somehow.* Just my 2 cents.
