EvernoteTools are part of the productivity puzzle. You know how when you were a kid and you would be putting together a puzzle and you always ended up with extra pieces that didn’t seem to fit or you couldn’t figure out where they went? That was frustrating, and putting together your productivity puzzle can be too. You want to be able to get the pieces and put them together in a way that fits instead of having extra, strangely shaped pieces of the puzzle. You want tools that fit you and make it easier to get it all done.

One tool that I’ve been in love with and using for a while now is Evernote. It serves me well and my clients who use it rave about it too. Evernote works really well, especially for those who find themselves chasing the BSOs. (Bright shiny objects) If electronic tools are a fit for your Productivity Persona,™ you can probably implement the use of Evernote. It’s like having a notebook handy and so much more. It lets you write anything from short lists to lengthy research; collect information and easily find the things you’re looking for. Some of the things I use it for are bookmarking articles I want to read later, saving research material and sharing information with team members. You can clip web articles with the web clipper app, capture handwritten notes, and snap photos to keep the physical and digital details of your projects with you at all times.

The beauty of Evernote is that it syncs across all devices, your laptop, phone, tablet and the internet. You have access to anything you save from any device in just seconds. I think this is my favorite feature because it lets me have my notes in the palm of my hand. There’s a free version as well as a paid version to support you, a well stocked app center, Evernote For Business as well as physical products you can add to your productivity mix. Visit the Evernote website to see if it’s a fit for you.
