How To Use Evernote For Your Grocery Shopping List

In this post you will learn How To Use Evernote For Your Grocery Shopping List.  One of the easiest ways to start using Evernote is for the simple things in your life.  As simple as creating a grocery shopping list?

Let me show you how to create a grocery shopping list in Evernote.  It is quick and easy.  In addition, it will save you time when shopping.

People ask me all the time what can you use Evernote for.  To answer this questions I wrote the following article about 21 Ways Evernote Will Help You.  

My first use of Evernote was to create a grocery shopping list.

Let me show you how it works.

Traditional grocery shopping list on paper.

It is likely that you would normally have written down the grocery items you need on a paper pad. Or, on the back of an envelope randomly lying around.  This may have been as you thought of each item.  However, if you are organised, you would spend the time to check the items you need before you go grocery shopping.

With your paper list and pen in hand, you would be walking through the market, crossing the items off as you place them in your basket. (more…)

How To Use Evernote As A Notebook

Did you know that Evernote can be used for a lot of different things?  Today I will show you how to use Evernote as a notebook.

There is the argument of an analogue paper notebook versus a digital notebook.  Everyone has at some stage used a paper notebook for school, for work or even a daily journal to just simply writing down the weekly grocery shopping list. Even you and I, right?

When it comes to digital note taking apps you can sometimes be left feeling a little cold.  There is often a real connection between a good pen and the crisp page of a notebook to get the creative mind flowing which is something that a digital notebook may not provide you.

But what if you can have both? (more…)

Taking Note – A Podcast By Evernote Episode 1. A Conversation With Michael Hyatt.

This Is What I Learned

The start of every new year is always a special and exciting time with lots of things to do, plans to make and goals to achieve.  It was also an exciting time this new year to hear that Evernote were rekindling their podcast again after what seemed like forever since they last uploaded one.

I have recently started to download and listen to more and more podcasts lately so Evernote’s new podcast was a warm welcome.

Taking Note a podcast by Evernote is described by the iTunes Podcast store as being presented by the leader in note taking and productivity.  Taking Note dives into the realms of personal and professional achievement, entrepreneurship and creative thinking.  They will interview experts and trailblazers, uncovering great ideas and best practices to help organise your work and declutter your life.

This is what I learned: (more…)

Crush It! Why Now Is The Time To Cash In On Your Passion. (Harper Studio, 2009)

The title in itself is enough to make you stop and pick the book up.  What grabbed my attention, besides the great big green CRUSH IT! title, was the sub-heading about Why Now Is The Time To Cash In On Your Passion.

I had, for a long time, thought how great life would be if you could do something for the rest of your life that revolves around your passion.  In reading the jacket cover, I bought the book.

Crush It!

Gary Vaynerchuk writes in a very conversational way, almost as if you are at a bar having a drink with him.  This style of story telling really works.

Gary recounts his story and what worked for him when he turned his family wine business into a multi million dollar business with the aid of online and social media.  From this, Gary developed his personal brand which is one of the main underlying themes of the book.

Gary’s advice?

  • Build your personal brand
  • Create good content
  • Choose your platform
  • Keep it real and authentic
  • Build your community

Perhaps the biggest lesson he shares is to Care.  The checklist in appendix: a is one that you will want to learn, memorise, action, rinse and repeat…over and over again.

Crush It!  A quick and easy read to make you start thinking about the rest of your life.



Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want (Baker Books, 2016)

One of the books I am currently reading is  best seller from Michael Hyatt of and Daniel Harkavy, titled Living Forward.

While the title was enough to grab my attention, the sub title, “A proven plan to stop drifting and get the life you want” resonated with me as I had been giving this subject quite a lot of thought recently.  I had to buy the book.

While I am only part way through the book it so far promises to guide me through a step by step process to understand:

  • our wants and needs
  • how to create a plan with clarity; and
  • how to implement what you have learned about yourself to make it happen

Living Forward

There is nothing worse than not being in control of your own life.  Living Forward promises to help you acknowledge the drift in your life and to help you regain control and direction.

Living Forward, so far so great!
