Yet Another Evernote Fantatic

Notebooks Productivity

“I can’t buy that. It hasn’t got any pockets.”Have you ever said that? If you’re female, you’re never away from your phone, so you have rigid requirements when you go clothes shopping — pockets.

(With luck, some entrepreneur will go truly retro to create pockets which you can tie on. Fashionable ladies wore tie-on pockets for a couple of centuries. We need them again now.)

My phone’s always in my pocket. Aside from its obvious use, I use it to access access Evernote, so I can leave myself reminders and voice notes.

I haven’t given up notebooks; I love writing with fountain pens and ink (Penguin pens and J. Herbin inks). I think better on paper. However, I snap images of important notes and store them in Evernote. Paper isn’t searchable.

Yes, I’m an Evernote fantastic. Evernote contains my life.

Why Evernote? As Going Paperless: How I Get Things Into Evernote | Jamie Todd Rubin says, Evernote is your external brain:

“A big part of the advantage of Evernote is being able to access the memory you store outside your head from anywhere. There are powerful search capabilities and I take full advantage of them, and while I am fast approaching 7,000 notes in Evernote, I can often dazzle people by finding the piece of information I am looking for within five or ten seconds. Having all of this information in Evernote saves me time.”

You’ll find that the more you use Evernote, the more valuable it becomes. I started becoming fanatical about Evernote after a major hard drive crash, combined with backup failures. Now I’m very twitchy about my information. I like it where I can get at it, on any device, at any time.

My phone’s always in my pocket. No matter where I am, I can create a quick voice note in Evernote.

Thus, pockets… :-)
