Organized and Productive with Evernote!

I used to have stickies all over my computer and my desk, I also put notes in notebooks and planners, so many notebooks even electronic ones. I felt like a notebook junkie, but really I was just looking for the right solution. During a class I was taking, someone showed me the power of Evernote. I had tried Evernote before but never got the hang of it. It did not seem intuitive to me. Now, it is the most intuitive notebook I will ever need!

Evernote (Every note) Productive!

Evernote isn’t to change the way you take notes, you may like to note everything or hardly anything at all. The way I see it, Evernote is to change the way you file your notes. Where did I put that important piece of information? No more questions or worries about that. Every note has a place.
