Going paperless, getting organized, starting anew. Sort of.

I’ve made the leap (attemping, more like it) to go as paperless as possible. This is coming from a chronic to-do-listaholic. Really, this is epic.

For notes/digital to do lists:

Michael Hyatt has posted over and over again about the program Evernote. So I thought I’d give it a shot. Really, Michael Hyatt has never steered me wrong. 🙂 And boy, do I LOVE Evernote already.

This syncs notes/articles/photos/everything between your computer, Android, iPhone, iPad and beyond. They have a Mac and a PC version. It is free – you have a data “allowance” for each month but unless you’re doing an outrageous amount of note taking, you should be fine.

Plus, the little elephant logo is cute, isn’t he?

Productivity:

I’m trying the Pomodoro Technique for batching my to-do list. Another Michael Hyatt-based life change. Seeing a trend?

The Pomodoro is basically – write your tasks, set up a timer, do one task at a time for 25 minutes and take breaks in between.

For chronic multi-taskers like myself, this is a novel concept. Multi-tasking decreases your productivity by 40 percent. Ouch.

So far, this is working well. It helped me crank out ten blogs in less than an hour. 🙂

Social Media Schedule:

It needed to be done. I’m planning on expanding my blog to post 5/days a week. So I need structure, purpose and a plan.

This is still in development. I’ll let you know how it goes.

QUESTION: Any tips or tools that you use that you love and recommend???
