6 Apr , 2017  

I was inspired by my entrepreneurial friend Daniel Irmler who runs ChurchHacks who recently shared a list of things he uses for work. I thought it would be good to list out the things that I use in my daily routine.

I am always testing out new things, but most of the tools listed above are things that I have settled on and are pretty much rock solid solutions for each purpose.

 

I STILL WANT TO ADD ONE MORE

Evernote continues to be an elusive tool. I have dabbled in using it a couple of times over the last decade or so, but I’ve never really figured out how to integrate it into my routine so that it really becomes a productivity turbo charge for me. If you personally use Evernote, please comment or reach out to me so that you might be able to persuade me or even give me a mini tutorial to get me kick started in the right direction.

 

WHAT ABOUT YOU?

It is always interesting to see what other people do and use. Feel free to copy paste my list above and then simply replace with what services you actually use for each task.

    Since Evernote has become more restrictive in their licensing and multi-device use, I have switched to Google Keep. Having an Android phone, Keep is integrated with Google Assistant/Google Now, so you can create notes and lists on the fly just by talking. For instance, this morning, I was using it to dictate a grocery list. I also use it to track ideas and such. Notes can be in a variety of formats, all of which I have found more practical than Evernote ever was.

      Jeremy, thanks for the reminder of a Google Keep. Wonder if it has OCR capabilities as Evernote has. I think the ability to search any scanned images is one of the super powers Evernote offers.

      I’ll have to look into Google Keep again, and see where it might fit into my routines.
