One of the best things about Evernote is that there’s no right or wrong way to implement it. This is great because you can mold Evernote to meet your needs, but first you need to make a plan. That’s how you’ll maximize your productivity. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Clarify your goals. What, specifically, does being more productive mean to you at work? What are you trying to accomplish? Create a note in Evernote, spend some time brainstorming what you’re trying to accomplish, and use numbered lists to prioritize your goals.
Start small. Pick a specific, manageable project to begin with. If you’re working on personal productivity, a good place to start is to enter your to-dos and tasks into Evernote, then use the Reminders feature to stay on track. On the flip side, if you’re looking to boost your team’s productivity, start by creating a shared notebook (or one in your Business Library if you’re using Evernote Business) that contains key information that you want team members to have access to.
Grow. One project at a time, build on what you’ve created and expand how you use Evernote. Try sharing project folders with your clients or vendors, or create a central timeline for a project (with reminders) in Evernote, and share that with your team. Add elements gradually and strategically, and you’ll find that Evernote can be a foundation for your continued success and productivity at work.
