Evernote

I'm becoming more and more addicted to Evernote.  It's my go to tool for a lot of things right now.  I use it to track receipts, track ID cards, and my favorite thing of all:  The check list.

I was brainstorming on my white board this morning - and I suddenly noticed that Evernote was becoming my solution for everything.  Weekly check lists, daily reviews, monthly reviews, etc.

I thought of the hammer story... when you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail. 

Evernote is great, but there are some limitations.  Right now the biggest limitation is this:  I'm still learning what the tool can and cannot do.

(If you're in that spot - trying to learn a new tool - go to the Kindle book store.  In the case of Evernote I found 3 free > 4 star books on the subject.  Each one taught me something new).

In this case I decided to not force the issue, and let evolution take me where I need to be on Evernote.  As I learn more I will figure out the balance on what I can and cannot most effectively do with the tool.
