Dennis 0 Posted January 29, 2010 Share Posted January 29, 2010 I'm thoroughly enjoying Evernote, with the Premium version. I've adapted my own David Allen/Getting Things Done system to Evernote. Wow! I'm off to a great start after just a little work upfront to implement tags and notebooks. I especially like how adaptable the tags are to create and later change. I've limited the number of notebooks, and have a standardized tag naming convention, and am trying to keep things simple. Now that I see the benefits of Evernote and how intuitively/well it works (near flawlessly, from what I can see) I'm considering trying to keep my office paperless if possible. Are there any reasons (other than the monthly limit on uploads) why I shouldn't start scanning everything in my inbox or on my desk (and forwarding emails to Evernote) that I might want to read/find later...and then toss the paper version? I have a desk top full of papers, business cards, receipts, a large file of "to read" items, a stack of professional newsletters that come in and I want to save, and a large file of miscellaneous "reference materials" that I am keeping for future information. I also get lots of emails from listservs, etc., that I want to save for future reference...but may never ever look at again. I also have various items that need to be saved for a future date (e.g., travel itineraries and meeting agendas), or letters/memos/email attachments to act upon now/soon. A related question is: are there any tips to make sure that my Evernote reference notebook doesn't become unmanageable in the future...I don't know why it would but I'm asking anyway.Thanks!
