  1. Hi there! I'd like to add my two cents to this post. This question, not surprisingly, has come up so many times before. As many know, since I wrote the eBook on how to use Evernote as a full-fledged GTD system, I use Evernote for everything - both todos and reference related materials. That being said, I know that one size does not fit everyone's productivity systems. Everyone works different and everyone has different workflows. Here's my biggest recommendation to you and what I tell so many of my clients: What few things must absolutely go right in order for you to have a productivity system that will make you more successful? I typically follow that question up by asking: What has not gone right in the past? What challenges have you had?

    The best thing to do, in my opinion, is to take a giant step backwards and think about what would your system look like if it were completely analog? Would it be a folder for @calls, a folder for @emails, a folder for @waiting for, and an A-Z folder system for reference related materials? Would you have 43 folders for every month and each day of the month? How would you process your information in a non-digital world? The reason why this is so important is because one must master the process before mastering the tool. If you can figure out how to do that successfully, learning how to do it in Evernote will be simple!

    I truly hope that helps!

  2. Thanks guys. In thinking about it more, I don't see a reason why I wouldn't have the work iPad have my regular Evernote account on it since I have it on my work PC anyway. Only I can access the iPad, so there aren't any concerns there; and plus the iPad has a password on it. As far as data, no it definitely wouldn't put me over at all. I guess if I was really concerned about security (having mixed data in my account), I wouldn't keep my regular Evernote account on my work PC to begin with! :) Thanks all for helping work through it "out loud". Having everything consolidated and easily searchable is the beauty of Evernote after all!

    (Oh, and Chris - yep, I've been titling my reference related notes the way you have it - I think it's addictive really. :) )

  3. Hi everyone - Let me provide for all of you my scenario and please let me know what you think my best would be:

    • I have an Evernote premium account for everything I do - work, my eBook business/blog, and home life.
    • Historically, I've been kept this account on my work PC, home MacBook, my personal iPad, and personal Android.
    • The day job just issued me an iPad that has work only apps on there which is great. The question becomes now what to do about my Evernote information on the work iPad

    My thought process is:

    1. Open a new Evernote account for my day job (I don't mind the $5/month), and share from my personal account to my work account the information I need so that I can access it on the work iPad.
    2. Export the ENEX files I need and import them into the work account.
    3. Just use my regular Evernote account on the work iPad

    Thanks everyone for your input!
