One of the tools I like to use to stay organized personally and professionally is Evernote.  the beauty of this application is that you can take note with you anywhere.  I use evernote on my iphone, ipad, laptop and my home PC.  Evernote keeps them all in sync, and makes it very easy to find things.


One other cool evernote trick is forwarding emails to Evernote.  You can send meeting notes, expense reports, pictures or anything you would have in an email to Evernote.  It makes a great tool for keeping a clean inbox.

Here are some instructions on how to use Evernotes email features – this is from the Evernote blog.

How it works

First, find your Evernote incoming email address. It’ll look something like[username].12345@m.evernote.com. The address is located under Account Info in the desktop versions of Evernote, under Settings in Evernote Web, and in the Sync tab of Evernote for iPhone. We recommend adding this email address to your address book or contact list.

Next, try emailing something into Evernote. In the subject line of your email, write the title of the note as you want it to appear in your account. In the same subject line, add one or both of the following:

  • Use @ for notebooks: Use an @ symbol followed by the name of your destination notebook
  • Use # for tags: Use a # symbol followed by the tag or tags you wish to assign. You can have multiple tags just make sure each one starts with an #

For example, Subject: Trip to Florida @travel #expense report

Would create a note titled Trip to Florida in my travel notebook, tagged with expense repor
