That was fast.
Unfortunately, I pretty quickly remembered what I didn’t like about The Secret Weapon. Because it’s within Evernote, it was always multiple steps to add a task, multiple steps to see what’s on my list, and multiple steps to make sure I was only looking at my 1-Now list instead of everything. And I never felt confident that I was getting everything into view.
I did scan all the business cards I’ve gotten and held on to into Evernote though. So now I can take a bunch of folks out of my contacts list – people I’ve met, good to have handy but don’t need to be clogging up the Address Book.
I’m finally starting to get Evernote. Kind of. For me, it’s to notes what Dropbox is to files – always around, synced on all my devices. I think with a bit of tinkering I can get it into my workflow.
Next up, some good old fashioned automation.
