If you got a new phone, tablet or computer and you plan on doing anything more than play games on it you are going to want to check out Evernote. Evernote will let you save pictures, documents and other forms of information in a single place and then access them for virtually any and all devices.
And if you check out Evernote you are going to want to check out Evernote Essentials: The Definitive Getting Started Guide for Evernote by Brett Kelly. Evernote Essentials is a PDF book with some great tips that will get you up and running with Evernote in no time. As Brett explains:
The amount of information we want and need to keep track of today is, frankly, ridiculous. Not long ago, my desk was covered with piles of financial statements, medical records, automotive service receipts — and that didn’t even include everything dealing with my job. We all struggle to keep our information organized and accessible, but without the right tool for the job, it can seem impossible. Thankfully, a tool like Evernote excels at doing exactly that — it’s a single place to organize everything that’s important to you. The tricky part is learning how best to use it so that all of those bits of information are a few clicks away when you need them.
We reached out to Brett and asked him to share a few additional tips that aren’t in the book. We posted the first two last week and now we are back with the third.
Delete Me- Tag temporary or transient notes with “delete-me” or similar for easy purging: Many of the things I add to Evernote are transient in nature: grocery lists, holiday gift ideas, etc. Tag these notes with a common tag (like, “delete-me” or something) so you can easily find and remove them when the job is done.
Evernote Essentials is a must for new Evernote users and has something to teach those who are more seasoned too.
