I use Evernote extensively for all kinds of activities.
As you can see from this screen shot of my Evernote notebooks I use it for Messages, Conference Notes, Training Ideas, Blog Posts, Radio Show & so on.
Michael Hyatt is a productivity guru who has posted a very helpful post on how pastors can use Evernote as a filing system for illustrations, quotes, humour & more.
I’ve been using Evernote to store illustrations & humour for some time now.
I can cut & paste direct into Evernote or if someone emails me a brilliant story I forward it Evernote with “@Illus” in the Subject line. Evernote stores it in my Illus notebook. Brilliant!
Last year an elderly man wrote me a marvellous letter with a wonderful story of responding to my encouragement to get involved in his church. I scanned it & now it sits in my Illus Evernote notebook waiting for the right occasion to be used in a sermon.
Plus Evernote is completely searchable.
Sure beats the old paper & Lever Arch filing system.
