A while back, I made some big claims, started a new revolution of sorts. I was going PAPERLESS!
Using some fantastic efficiency apps and new toys, I was on my way. Going completely digital and ultra hip. It’s what the cool kids do, these days.
Well, I failed.
This is why:
I LOVE paper. I love my pen. I love the feel of crossing something off a list. I love the smooth swipe of a cursive letter. I love my day planner with the monthly calendar view and the weekly…
I made the transition to the Kindle with relative ease (though I still read many paperback books), so I thought I was “ready ” for this. Using Evernote and my iPad calendar, I could keep everything straight and synced between my home laptop, my work laptop and my on-the-go, handy-dandy iPad.
Nope. Still didnt work. All the high-tech tools of the world couldn’t break me. I ended up not checking my iPad calendar enough and double-booking myself and forgetting to input appointments. It was a mess.
Now, I’m back on the straight and narrow. I still use Evernote a ton! And I still use the meeting notes and requests through Outlook and my iPad. I just had to go back to the notebook to-do list and the day planner.
Have you ever tried a new organization system? Did you have success? Failure? Did you gain a wide, encompassing knowledge into yourself? (Oh, that might just be me…)
