What Am I Using? | Evernote | Tekie Friday

Love Evernote… Really taking it to another level with my life in a effort to go paperless.  Love how it all through all devices and it’s free and powerful.

What is Evernote?  Your mind can only hold so many things.  So why not stick a ton of things into Evernote and then later on you can easily search for things and bring them up.  It’s Free!  So save your ideas, inspiration, things you like, you hear and things you see through pictures + video.  Then you can search Evernote on your laptop, phone, iPad and all your things are synced across all devices.  You can search by keyword or tags and it will find those words inside what you saved into it.  It will even find a word on a T shirt that someone is wearing in a picture you sent to it.

A couple ways how I use it:

– When flipping through magazines like Toronto Life I can simply take a picture with my phone of inspiring things, places to go or places I want to eat at.  I will take a picture of the little bio on it.  Then the words inside the picture are searchable.  I do this for things that I need to get on my wishlist.

– Excellent for helping me GTD (Getting Things Done).  I can add things to “Today” and then sort by things regarding calls, errands, online, emails to do.  It’s easy to create a checklist with little boxes to tick off when things are completed.

– A super way to reference everything.  Articles from the web, websites to keep bookmarked, photo’s taken, audio notes of tasks + thoughts, PDF’s of bus schedules + swimming hours at all the surrounding pools, photo’s of business cards received (text is searchable from inside the photo), all sales receipts are added inside for reference, daytrip ideas with the kids, photo’s of boxes in storage and what’s inside each one, music that I want to download, emails forwarded to Evernote that get filed automatically, contracts, lock combos, warranty info, PDF instruction manuals and a whole bunch of other crap I am importing into it.  I can use “Clearly” (download it from Evernote.com) on my laptop to push a button and have the whole screenshot, article, website captured and sent to Evernote.

– Using it as a Journal of thoughts with video + audio diaries of the day.

– Keep track of all online accounts with reference info and login + account info.  I can also forward any emails from Third-party to my Evernote Email address and simply delete the emails from my inbox.

– Scan kids artwork and school work into it.  I also take pictures with my phone of drawings, test scores, etc.

– All statements for banking + accounts are sent to it.  I take the PDF’s of the statements and email them to Evernote.

– Each Client of mine has a Folder and all communication + notes are inside for reference.

– I use it to hold my list of 101 Things in a 1001 Days.  I also send voice memo’s, ideas and pictures to Evernote about any progress and updates to my list.

– I add songs I hear and I want to download through iTunes when I get online and have a credit to spend on it.

– Always sending links to articles and websites I like and might want to reference later or share with someone.  I do this a lot.

– I snapped a picture for every store card I have… so If they want my card… I can find it and read the number to them… so no more wallet full of store reward cards.

– I snapped pictures of my kids health card & immunization records for future access.

– Marketing ideas get put into Evernote for reference + action items needed to be completed.

– Created shared notebooks that certain people have access to for collaboration on projects.

– I use Evernote Clearly as a Web Clipper and Clip Articles and Recipe’s from the Food Network, Food & Drink, Canadian Living + Martha Stewart.  If I am flipping through a Magazine… I will simply take a picture of the dish, directions with ingredients so I can pull it up if I want to make it in the future.

– Add photo’s of handwritten notes to be reference later.  Evernote understands my writing and all the text is searchable later from the words captured in the photo.  This is super awesome!

All it takes is to open your mind at how you can add many things into it.  We use Google to search for public things.  The more you add into it…. you can use Evernote to “Google” the stuff that your mind can’t remember and you can find things quickly to reference.  It’s wild to think about.  I am throwing more things into it each day.  It’s a record for anything…

Teckie Thursday | Deeper Into Evernote | The Tease | Tutorials

Only have 50 seconds… and want to know what Evernote is… you can watch the video below.  But it’s just a tease.  I use Evernote everyday.  More and more am I finding ways to add to it and throw everything inside.  It’s powerful and free.

Remember Everything!

 

I usually tell everyone I run into about Evernote.  They download it and then don’t really know how to use it or don’t see many ideas on what they can put into it.  This blog post has some videos.  We all like to watch videos.  The great part of these videos is that they are all short.  I’m going to post some videos to start showing you how I use it and some of the side applications I have installed on my laptop, Android phone and my iPod Touch.

Let’s watch some videos about some side applications I use as well as how some people use it in their life for personal + business uses.

The first thing I want to show you is Evernote Clearly, which is a great widget you can download to use on your internet browser like Firefox or Google Chrome.  If you are not using one of these two browsers.  Please turn off your computer and step away!  Before you watch the video… imagine all the websites you visit on your daily routine and think about all the other websites you visit that you discover.  I’m sure you see interesting things you want to remember and archive.  This is where “Clearly” comes in.  So simple… you click a button and it grabs all the details… then click another button and off it goes to your Evernote.

You can download the “add-on” and learn more about it at http://evernote.com/clearly/

Excited? Let’s see “Clearly” again…

It’s opening up your mind on how to use it…

Evernote for Ipod/phone/pad (redesigned):  So easy to use… so easy to import things… and later find things you need to bring up on all your devices.

Then there is Skitch. (Below)  It’s a app for your iPod or Android Device/Phone.  I use Skitch on my phone and Ipod and use it to add details to content that I’m sending to Evernote or content I’m going to email someone with details and instructions.

Learning + Showing Kids about Evernote.  Imagine How My Kids could use it starting now till “Forever”  Below is a cool way a school is using it and taking teaching + note taking to another level with Evernote that the data is kept forever for future reference.

Below is another example of kids using it inside their school.

I use Evernote “Hello” on my phone.  It’s a free application for Android and Apple.  I’m trying to push myself to use it more and remember I have it to save the interactions with people I meet and want to remember and keep in contact with.  See “Hello” below:

 

If you have a iPad… you can use Penultimate if you like to jot down notes and love to brainstorm ideas.  I wish I had a iPad now…

Watch the Penultimate overview below:

Evernote for Small Business.  The more I watch this… the more it opens my mind and how I can challenge myself to use it to add more rich content + ideas that will help me grow my knowledge base on things + topics:

 

 

Ok… here is some tutorials, that are short and breaks down the basic topics of how it works and it’s layout.  First… download Evernote from the website on your home computer & laptop.  Next, download the free app on your devices for Android + Apple Products.  Set up your Notebooks and remember… as you grow and learn it… you can set them up different.  Just get started… and keep plugging things into it.

 

Below is all about adding Notes full of content to Evernote:

Below is all about Notebooks and setting them up:

Next is all about adding Tags inside your Notes so you can sort them, search for content and show all the notes inside a certain Tag (Grouping):

Below is all about the Evernote Search function:

That’s about it.  I hope you enjoyed the videos.  I have another blog post about Evernote and examples of how I am using it.  You can view it here.  If you have any questions about Evernote… you can email me or leave a comment in this post.

Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere. Any file you save to your Dropbox will also automatically save to all your computers, phones, and even the Dropbox website. This means that you can start working on your computer at school or the office, and finish on your home computer. Never email yourself a file again!
