If you are anything like me, you probably struggle with keeping your life organized.
On any given day we all have appointments, meetings, receipts, homework assignments etc.
The question is, how do you keep track of all this?
As a Husband, Father & Bi-Vocational Pastor, I struggle with this on a daily basis. I am constantly getting emails, phone calls, meeting with people, Bible study, attending school, running kids places and I often have no real way to keep track of all the “paper trails” in my life.
Evernote is the #1 most used app on my Phone, Tablet and Computer.
The simple definition is that: Evernote is a note-taking application.
But it is so much more than that.
Think of it as a digital filing cabinet. The idea behind Evernote, is that our lives would be much more organized and stress free if we got rid of all the paper trails & thoughts on our sticky notes that line our desks, pockets, random notepads & our brains.
What if we digitized everything?
When I get an important email I save it to Evernote.
Those important notes from the meeting: Evernote.
My Shopping lists, todo list, reminders? I put it all in Evernote.
Any important idea, sermon thoughts, reminders or cool quotes I put them in Evernote.
Anything you want to remember and store: you can save it to Evernote.
In Evernote, you can store pretty much any type of file format like PDF, Word Docs, Power-point, pictures, pages etc.
Here is the cool part…
This is not just a digital equivalent to a paper pile.
Everything you have saved in Evernote can be organized into appropriate notebooks and categories.
Another mind-blowing feature is that everything you have saved into Evernote is searchable! That even includes words inside of pictures.
So you don’t even have to remember where you saved a note, just start typing words that you know are in your note and instantly that note pops up.
There are almost endless uses for Evernote in your personal life, ministry or job.
So if you have a smartphone, tablet or computer, EVERNOTE IS FOR YOU!
Best of all, IT'S FREE!!!
If you want EVEN MORE awesome productivity and power you can upgrade to a premium account for $49.99 a year!
Here is a quick video from Evernote on ways it is being used by people and businesses all over the world.
I challenge you to try using it for 30 days and just start saving things in there. You will see the difference it makes in your life.
