“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… :-)
