No Great Insight and No Great Read
on 25 July 2014
I have been an Evernote user for over ten years, I've stuck with it through the various innovations, re-designs, seemingly retrograde steps and bold advances because it s such a useful programme. Although not an 'Evernote Ninja' I now my way around and having read David Allen's Book some years ago I have tried to apply some of the tenets contained therein to my use of Evernote with varying degrees of success.
I saw this and thought this could be the answer, I mean if someone's already figured it out why re-invent the wheel, sadly no great insight was forthcoming and I was left with a disappointing feeling that I had been conned. The book does a reasonable job of giving you a synopsis of GTD and providing a Newbie guide to Evernote, both of which I don't need; what it doesn't do in my opinion is provide a framework for the successful marriage of the two. A better alternative is 'The Secret Weapon - An Original Manifesto - A No Nonsense Approach to Personal Productivity' which can be downloaded from the Web for free.
