I love Evernote. Does it have it’s share of confusion and hiccups? Sure. However, Evernote is still my digital brain. It holds everything for me from preaching notes, this blog post, take out menus, and Ebooks. It’s important to me and I have no idea what I’d do without it. I really wouldn’t like to find out either.

In the days of stolen credit card numbers and online hacks, security is a priority in our lives. That’s another reason I love Evernote… for their security (you can see a security overview for them here). Not only do they have 2 step verification that ensures that it’s you when you log in, but they give even more security options to a premium user.
Here are 2 things premium Evernote users can do to make their accounts more secure…
There are 2 tools that I’m using increasingly to get things done these days. These 2 tools have helped me be more productive day to day and with large projects. I’ve talked about one of them, Evernote many times on the blog. There’s one, though, that’s making the internet easier for a lot of people. If This Then That is a service that works to connect different services.
I am an Evernote fan boy. There, I said it.
I’ve written about Evernote many times in the past. You can see those posts here. As I change the way I process information and as I lead more and more, I’ve adjusted how I organize just about everything I do. Right now, here are 5 Everntoe notebooks that I’m using more and more. They’re a great start for any young leader that needs some organizing…
I have confessed my love and reliance on Evernote in the past. I’ve used it for years now and really would be lost without it… at least everything I have would be lost without it. A lot of people look at Evernote and use only a small portion of it or see it as just too much for their needs. The truth is, it can be as in depth and carry as big of a load as you’ll let it, but can also be a light weight, quick note taker.
Here are 6 ways I use Evernote on a regular basis…
My first book releases in just a couple of months. It’s a project that I have to be honest in saying that I didn’t want. I didn’t want to spend hours and months writing a book… not with all that I have going on and all of the things I have my hands in on a daily basis.
Nevertheless, after some prodding from a publisher and the Holy Spirit, I agreed to begin working on a leadership book for younger leaders. Being a pretty organized person, one of the first things I knew I had to do was organize all of the ideas and content in a way that made sense to me. Writing Next Up took plenty of time… I didn’t want to have an unorganized mess to work through while I was writing.
Below I’m going to outline how I organized all of my content, notes, outlines, and ideas in Evernote. I’m an Evernote believer (I was before this) even more so now. Evernote made writing my first book a less frustrating experience.
My personal blog has over 1,300 posts. Those posts have come over a long period of time. I started writing my first post on Blogger in September of 2008. Some of those posts have certainly been better than others and some have certainly taken longer than others to publish.
Through those 7 years, I’ve learned a little bit of a process for finding an idea, developing it, and publishing to my blog. Here’s a look at how it usually goes for me when posting a new blog post…
Bible Study Apps
There are several Bible study apps that work well on an iPhone (or any other phone). Of course, the Bible from Lifechurch.tv is great, but I like the suite of apps from Olive Tree. You can add commentaries to it on a purchase by purchase basis and sync across all your devices.
