One of the challenges that is only going to get worse over time is the ability to capture all of the information that you come across and would like to remember. Sometimes I am at my desk, sometimes with a client on-site, and usually mobile somewhere. How do you capture all the important information that is coming at you from these various locations, sources and formats? More importantly, how will you be able to get access to this information when you need it. How can you remember everything?
Many of you know that WebTools for SalesMakers is the title of my upcoming book. Web Tools are an important part of my professional life. I am always searching for ways to incorporate technology into my work-flow to enhance, speed up and increase the value of my efforts. One of those Web Tools is EVERNOTE .
EVERNOTE allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and search-able at any time, from anywhere. No matter whether you are at your desktop, cell phone or on your laptop at Starbucks, just capture what you feel is important to you. Mac, PC, Linux are all supported along with your cell phone camera.
Here is how it works:
- You capture the things you want to remember using what you already use—your Windows or Mac computer, the web, and your mobile phone.
- EVERNOTE runs everything through their recognition technology, and then synchronize it across your devices. You can then organize and tag the notes, if you wish.
- When you want to find something, just search or filter and there it is just like you remember it.
This tool works simply and elegantly and is free for most of you. If you really get going with this tool, you can upgrade to provides 500 mb of storage and additional security and support for a small fee. It is a great tool to add to your toolbox. Give it a try and tell me how you are using EVERNOTE.
