Organizing Your Life With Evernote
I have gone nearly paperless in my household and business using my ScanSnap and PC folders. However, I know this method is difficult for most and my friend and fellow professional organizer, Dawn George, has a solution that can help you in a myriad of aspects of your life.
Dawn George is a CPO®, (Certified Professional Organizer), NAPO member, Evernote expert and friend. Please enjoy her wonderful advice on how to get control of the paper in your life.
Or how about this one… Your e-mail inbox is filled with emails you might need to refer to in the future. You’ve deleted what you can but the rest could be useful at some point, however it’s nearly impossible to weed through it all to find what you need.
We have all dealt with situations similar to these and oftentimes feel that ideas and information becomes lost simply because we don’t have a reliable system to capture it. Well, the good news is there is a solution and it’s an app called Evernote.
The information stored in Evernote is synced across all devices so it’s available anywhere and it’s completely searchable so you can find exactly what you need when you need it. When I say searchable I really mean it. Evernote searches for words within documents, PDFs, images and even handwritten notes!
You can drag and drop documents, images, PDFs, screen shots and scanned papers into Evernote. You can also save voicemails and photos, forward e-mails as well as clip information from websites into Evernote, and much more.
