Keeping Organized with Evernote

My life is often hectic and I'd be willing to bet that yours can be as well. When things get really busy it's a double whammy for me.

1. It's difficult for me to stay organized because I don't have time to get things onto a "To Do" list.
2. When I need access to things I'm working on, I'm in a place where I can't access what I need.

Lately I've begun using a nice program called Evernote to help with these kinds of problems. Evernote is available as a download to my Palm Pre and I downloaded it just to see what it was like. It's a program that is web based, phone based, and also computer based.

It allows you to create notes, photos, documents, etc on any platform and then access them by any other. What this means is that I can create a shopping list from my desk at my office and then access it on my phone on the store.

One of the things that I've really enjoyed about it is using it to keep track of my many projects. This allows me to create multiple notes for each of my articles, speaking engagements, product testing, etc and then access them anywhere if a question comes up. I can also add to or edit these anywhere I have access to the Internet.

The program is free for limited usage and less than $50 for unlimited use. I've only scratched the surface of what it can do, but I can tell you it's making my life a lot easier.
