Evernote – Cool Technology to Simplify Your Life
Evernote is a super cool FREE technology that I was introduced to while reading a book by Tim Ferris called “The 4 Hour Work Week”. The book is about ways to make your life easier, to automate things, with the goal being to get all the work you want to get done, as efficiently and as effectively as possible.
Evernote: A Time Saving tool
One of the tools he suggested was Evernote. So being a good student, I immediately sought to apply what I had learned. I googled it, downloaded it, and started playing with it.
What Evernote can do is be a web-based place where you can keep your notes, pictures, videos, web clippings, business plans, basketball scouting notes…and then be able to access it from anywhere! So if you make notes on one computer, just do it in Evernote, and then when you are on another computer, just open Evernote and there they are. The most supercool feature is that I can actually do it on my blackberry as well (or your iphone or droid or ipad or whatever).
Never lose your inspirational thoughts!
As I have told you before, one of the places I get my most in-depth thinking done is when I am on long walks, and some inspiration hits me (Ho’oponopono…are you living from replayed memories or inspiration?) I know that if I wait to get home I will lose that thought. So I just take a second, and enter a note into Evernote, and it will not only be accessible from my Blackberry later, but it will actually synch and then be available from any computer with internet access!! How super cool is that? I have found Evernote has saved me a tremendous amount of time and energy, and made me much more productive (and less forgetful).
Usually if I was out and about I would scribble a note on the back of a receipt or something like that and lose it. Or I would email myself a note…but then I had to take time cutting and pasting and transposing it to something else. You can add photos you take to Evernote. You can add videos. If you have an ipad you can use a program to take handwritten notes and save it to Evernote. You can actually clip interesting pictures/articles from the internet (like YourStressIsGone.com of course…lol!) into Evernote.
Many different uses for Evernote
My cousin Glen Estrabillo ( RetireMeGlen.com ) is a young entrepreneur who has been able to retire himself living off residual income from real estate investing. He travels across North America, and globally on a frequent basis. He also runs courses teaching people how to do it. I don’t know if he used Evernote, but I know he subscribes to my blog…so hopefully he will find out about Evernote and I think it could prove a valuable asset to him.
As a basketball coach, in between games I will make notes on opposing teams we may play, and put them into Evernote. If you need to pick up groceries, make a list on your computer at home on Evernote, including inserting recipes from the internet, and them pull them up on your cell phone. If you have a presentation for work, enter it into Evernote, and then pull it up from work, or vica versa, or if you want to work on it from the beaches of The Mayan Rivera.
