The Evernote Certified Experts know a thing or two about making the most of Evernote’s super searchable superpower. But you can easily replicate the secret to their success by doing one simple thing: capture everything into Evernote. Saving emails, attaching PDFs, or uploading images all into one Evernote account allows you to easily create a single source of truth or a database of your brain.
It’s like getting to physically search through your thoughts and ideas, not worrying about having to remember everything. Evernote does that for you. By putting everything in one place, you can save yourself time when looking for something and even reduce friction when trying to organize yourself.
It doesn’t come easy, however. Some Experts say they had to build a habit of capturing into Evernote or change their workflows. But the end result is the game changer that made all the difference for them. Learn what the Experts say about capturing in Evernote and how you can make a habit of capturing in Evernote, too.
