Watch the video below:
CONTINUE THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:
Now, I don’t know whether you’ve heard of Evernote, I don’t know how much of Evernote that you use, but I’ve been using the premium version for some time now and I like to review the products that I use. I like to review the things that have benefited me and if they benefited me, I like to recommend them to others and I also like to see whether there’s I can do for others, in turn help them out and help your life out.
So Evernote. I’ve been using Evernote now for about 6 months quite continuously and the great thing about Evernote in terms of note taking, I absolutely love the fact that it integrates across the – like the website and mobile app, so I’ve got it on my phone as well and there’s also an extension and you can see here, the great thing about it, you can just see one note here and I’ll get into the details of how I use Evernote but you can see here, I’ve got my ultimate life plan. So this is just one of my roles. I’ve been sharing a number of different videos over the past 12 months, 18 months really on different topics that I use Evernote with, without ever speaking about Evernote itself.
So I thought why not do an Evernote review? So it’s really, really quite good, like this is a note that I created, it’s my ultimate life plan. This is really how I – I read this all the time, you can see if you look at the date here, this was back from July last year so we’re talking 8 months ago and sort of the ultimate life plan is just a set of standards to what I like to live my life by, so all different roles, caring husband, an inspiring friend, and you can see these are just the things that I sort of read on a continuous basis to keep me moving in the right direction, but the great thing about Evernote, if I wanted to just create a note and this is the premium version, and the reason why I’m showing you the premium version is because I checked Evernote and Evernote they actually do a refer a friend and you get to have a go on Evernote for free for an entire month, which I thought was really quite incredible!
So you can check it out entirely for a month, see if you get use out of it. If you don’t get use out of it then you can just not bother with it. If you do, I might have just referred to you something that could potentially increase your productivity or increase your life in some way. So you can just simply add a note and it’s so easy and it just flows nicely. I can add a note here and it goes straight onto my phone. It goes straight onto the Chrome extension, whatever I’m using, as long as I’m connected to an internet, it’s perfect.
So I could put a note saying review Evernote for example, and then it’s just the simple – I can do many things. In terms of like the RPM, I’ve shown RPM for a long period of time now in terms of result, purpose, massive action plans, because that’s how I’m really productive. I could put – and I’m just going through and showing you examples of how to use this. Very straight forward, without the use of paper. I know some people like to use paper and I like to use paper too but it’s quite good to go from paper to electronic, depending on what you’re doing. Sometimes you can’t just have a notepad walking around, because I do have like the ultimate visions that I showed you there, I actually have them in a folder as well, which I carry around but sometimes, like say I can’t carry the folder around, so it’s ideal to have like an electronic software like this and Evernote, you just do the research.
Evernote is very well respected, very inexpensive as well. It only costs something like $3.99 a month, which is really, really small so you can easily just type whatever you want in here and then you can format it, you can put check boxes, you can put in tables, you can paste in photos and screenshots, there’s a lot of things you can do.
So let me just press done. When you look down you can just simply click like search, you can do a chart, I can set up some shortcuts, the notes, I can list all the notes that I’ve ever done and notebooks, here’s you’re going to see my notebooks so I’ve got like book notes, I’ve got coaching clients, coaching with Kathy, I’ve got my goals, investing, online arbitrage mastery. As I’ve showed you, this is how I plan online arbitrage mastery, if you could recall, I actually released a video on this.
This is the sort of process that I used and Evernote is really, really good for it. Let me get back to my life plan. I actually started doing a – which I really like about this, I actually started doing a success log as well. I started doing a success book using Evernote, which is really good because I literally just set up a – I’m not going to show you it because it’s got personal conversations that I’ve had because I like to capture moments, so I can literally take a photograph, I can take a screenshot and I can just drag the files into here, which is really, really good.
The little extension, the clip to Evernote, that’s this thing here. I could literally clip something to Evernote and whether it’s an article or a simplified article, a full page, a bookmark or screenshot, I can pretty much just clip it straight away, so I could be just – for instance, I could be on my blog or I could be on somebody else’s blog, I could be researching key words, whatever it is, and I could take a screenshot and Evernote is brilliant, I don’t have to open up Word and I don’t have to open up Excel or any other sort of program, it’s all on Evernote so I thought I would just quickly show you this.
I thought why not, because it’s something that I use on a regular basis, it’s something that integrates with other things, you can sort of integrate this with different applications and it’s really, really useful. If you do want to have a go, if you click the link underneath, that is my refer a friend. You can see I’m using it, this is the premium version. I highly recommend it, I think it’s great.
I’ve always got use out of it. Like you see, I mean, this note was from July last year, I still read it to this day, it’s really, really useful in terms of book keeping, book notes, I read books. Like on my Kindle I might be – either on my Kindle or my phone or it might be Kindle on my actual laptop itself and I can just take a screenshot and put it in my book notes. So when I go back and read work the system or I read tools of titans or I read any type of book on investing or anything, take a screenshot, put it in my Evernotes and then I’ve got it on my phone, I’ve got it on my laptop, I’ve got it if I shut this laptop down and I go across the world and I sign on to Evernote and then it’s there, and that’s the brilliant thing aboutEvernote and that’s the brilliant thing about planning and keeping your organised.
So if you are interested, by all means, you do get a free month. Obviously you can go to Evernote and just sign up if you wanted to, but going through this link, you get a free month, so I thought why not just record it, share it with you and then it’s up to you.
If you’ve enjoyed this video, if you want to review it in more details, please just give me a comment. Like the video, let me know if you’re using Evernote, what do you think? How are you using it? Can you recommend how I use it better? Am I using it to itss full capacity? I know you can put in files and you can insert, attach files, there are a lot of things you can do with it and I think it’s only going to get better if you’re a note taker.
If you’re a note taker, I know I read getting things done by David Alan, which I did another review on but I always take notes. I’ve got a capture list on Evernote, I’ve got a capture list in my folder and then every single week when I do my planning, I just simply look at my notes and go, what do I need to plan, what’s my highest leverage to dos, what’s my highest leverage outcomes, and then I plan it and then I make some progress, so Evernote has been definitely a big advantage in terms of productivity, so this has been Kev from LifeSuccessEngineer.com, I hope you enjoyed that one and until the next one, cheers! Have an outstanding day!
