Brett Kelly, Evernote essentials ebook author, has owned the “Evernote how-to” niche for nearly as long as Evernote has been around. His Unofficial Evernote manual, Evernote Essentials is the must-have book for squeezing all the power available out of Evernote. Whether you’re a beginner or an Evernote expert you must own Evernote essentials, because Brett Kelly knows more than you. That’s why the guys over at Evernote gave him a job in 2010. Brett consulted with them during the writing of Evernote Essentials. The Evernote brains trust were so impressed with the way in which Brett was able to demystify Evernote in Evernote Essentials and make Evernote’s full power available even to novices who have never used evernote before.
When the Student is ready, the master appears
I had do my what I can to find the best ways to use Evernote. Loads of people have contacted me trying to convince me that Evernote sucks or that Evernote is only good for bookmarks or Evernote is no good as an offline tool or that Evernote can’t be used for fitness or goal tracking or capturing reciepts or this or that. I don’t really waste my time responding, the guys complaining that Evernote can’t Manage their projects or park their car for them have missed the point completely. Evernote is simply a tool. A very powerful and flexible tool but a tool nonetheless. I can use the butt of a saw to knock in a nail but it’s probably not the best way to do it. If DevonThink or Springpad or remember the milk works better at certain tasks by all means use them for those things you don’t win any extra points for using Evernote for Everything. (though I’m becoming more and more convinced that you can)
Back to the Drawing Board
No I’m not as geeky as this guy, he wrote a whole Evernote essentials book for goodness sake, but I can dream can’t I? Now I’m a big lover of Evernote as anyone whose visited my site would know. I’ve been on and on about why you should use Evernote to organize your life. I’ve prattled away about why you NEED to read GTD and then cram all the book’s knowledge into Evernote and I’ve regularly ignored my own advice and had to go back to the organization drawing board more than once.
Now I’m pretty okay with my Evernote exploits I do lots of other writing and Evernote and this personal productivity site is more of a tool for me to use than the be all and end all of my life. Brett though has lived and breathed Evernote essentials for so long he’s decided to wear his love on his sleeve, so to speak.
Lots of people think tattoos should only be things that are “always” — they want anything indelibly marked on their bodies to be things that describe them as people and definitely not transitive stuff. I disagree. While most of my tattoos deal with things that will always be true about me (family, religion, etc.), I’m a big believer in tattoos as memories, things that meant a great deal to me at a given point in my life — but not necessarily forever.
So, that’s why I got the elephant (courtesy of my insanely talented brother). Given the amount of change in my life over the last year that I owe it, I think it deserves a couple square inches of meat. Don’t you?
