Less is More, Where Relationships are Concerned
Don’t Just Add Existing Contacts. Create Notes for People You’d Like to Meet – example Phil Libin below
How to Remember to Stay in Touch in a World of Noise
Filter last updated – OR use Follow Up then OR reminders
Love this in the article:On Karma
Generally when I meet someone new, after I get to know them I always end up asking the same thing: “If there was one thing that I could help you with this week or this month or this year, what would it be?”
I have implemented this in my life and it is an interesting experience. :) Also note that Evernote has its own app for relationship management, called Evernote Hello.
Follow ups and Reminders
- Reminders for bills that is not automated.
- Capturing gift ideas for specific events
- Dealing with milestones (in projects)
- Irregular appointments
- Send info about a person before meeting them – see above about relationship management to Manager
- Reminding phonecalls – can be used with Callnote
- RSVPing to specific events
In another post Jamie mentions is quick reminders:
Quick reminders on mobile
FollowUpThen is a great reminder tool using email and can easily be integrated in Evernote, but since Evernote added reminders this is a bit redundant, but might be a great alternative for your email handling, since it is no install and simply just to send an email
How reminders works in Evernote
As you go on in your life you constantly get tips from friends, blogs, the internet and so on- as we all have a limited time here on earth – I have switched from almost only reading on recommendations, from my friends, or from podcast or other source of information.. How do I manage that? Well.. first of all I follow a reverted version of Jamies tips. His tips for giving other people book recommendations is truly great and simple.
- Create a Recommendations notebook
- Define a tagging scheme
- Add Recommendation to the notebook (use one note per recommendation).
- Share The Notebook
- Tell People about the link
- Keep recommendations up to date.
I HAVE NOT yet implemented this but I plan to do so soon. I am however working on a reverted version of this with recommendations given to me, especially for books, movies, Gear, Services and Gear.. will update you on how I implemented this in a future post.
As a GTD (Getting Things Done) user I love using Evernote to achieve that. The Secret weapon is a great technique that take the versatility of evernote and integrating the methodology of GTD into Evernote. I have been using this since almost a year back and I love it. Since Evernote 5 for Windows just have been released I have not yet gotten around to optimize it but I will get there. This GTD system is soo powerful and soo great that I don’t even know where to begin. If you want to be a PowerUser for Evernote and GTD – you should try it right now!
Their own apps are awesome!
What is skitch? Skitch is a markup tool for all devices that is closely integrated in Evernote. It is available on “all” devices. Skitch for Windows is a great tool for quick screenshots, highlight and mark your images and screenshots. Skitch for iPad is nothing short of MAGNIFICENT! You can there highlight mark, annotate, edit whatever you want. I find it especially useful for PDFs when traveling. Check out this Youtube clip for a deeper understanding
Evernote Web Clipper is a browser “add-on” that enables you to save anything you see online—including text, links and images—into your Evernote account with a single click.
Evernote is great for automation with IFTTT. Some tips of how I use it:

Need more reasons?
Evernote keeps innovating and collaborating
Evernote DevCup: Postach.io
Every year evernote has a “devcup” which is like a conference during a couple of days. This year (2013) the “gold award” was given to Postach.io
Postach.io is a way of using Evernote as a “one stop shop” for blogging. really interesting read more here. This is simply yet another reason as to why Evernote is the number 1, FLAWD app. They keep innovating and collaborating, and that is the 10 reasons as to why you need evernote to win.
Disclaimer: Evernote is not for everyone.
Since it is so powerful it is not recommended for everyone, LifeHacker has made a comparison of different techniques.
There are other alternatives: Google Keep | SimpleNote | Good Old: Pen & Paper, which enables you limitless possibilities – like drawing, mind map and “offline” access out of the box. Never underestimate the power of Low Tech like Pen and Paper.
AS you have “noted”. We truly recommend Evernote is if you want to win. One important thing to keep in mind is that regardless of how great a tools is, it is only as great as its master. So keep innovating and keep going forward! If you are new to Evernote or note taking, give it time! All new routines takes time to implement and integrate into your life. Soo what are you waiting for?

How are you using evernote? We would love to hear your story.
Take NOTES! Be a student of life!
Lastly another quote from Jim Rohn where he mentions 3 treasures to leave behince (they are: pictures, library and journals):
The ideas that you picked up, the information that you meticulously gathered. But of the three, journal writing is one of the greatest indications that you’re a serious student. Taking pictures, that is pretty easy. Buying a book at a book store, that’s pretty easy. It is a little more challenging to be a student of your own life, your own future, your own destiny. Take the time to keep notes and to keep a journal. You’ll be so glad you did. What a treasure to leave behind when you go. What a treasure to enjoy today! – Jim Rohn
