I’ve been a scribbler for as long as I can remember, in fact I’m not sure that I write everything down because I have a bad memory or if I have a bad memory because I write everything down.
About a year ago I stopped using notepads and tried to go completely digital. I bought a premium Evernote subscription and started using Wunderlist for reminders. I have to say that it was a difficult transition for me, I’m so used to jotting things down constantly that it was difficult to start typing away on my tablet or phone. I found that I’d have to force myself to do it as it just didn’t feel as natural but slowly it became easier.
Now a year later, my Evernote account is a hugely valuable resource. One of the best tools for it is the chrome extension that allows you to clip web pages. Combine those notes with the ones that I entered in manually from my many notebooks and I honestly don’t know what I’d do without it.
That being said, I have found I’ve started taking rough notes back on a notepad (which then I copy into Evernote if I find I need them) so when a colleague showed me this Kickstarter Project I immediately backed it. I’ve never backed anything on Kickstarter before so I really don’t know what to expect. Hopefully it’ll turn up but until then I’m back scribbling away on a traditional pad of paper.
Have a good week.
