Using Evernote Templates for day to day use.
A hidden gem of Evernote is their templates. These premade forms were created so you don’t have to spend hours making your own checklists and templates. Evernote breaks down areas of life into collections for work, school and life in general.
With these templates you can add them to your own Evernote account. It’s an easy 1-2-3 process.
1. Click the link to open the template
2. Click Save to Evernote
3. Begin working in the template
Business templates help streamline workflow. Goal tracking, planning and brainstorming templates allow you the structure to work through those issues. Evernote has created templates around the Getting Things Done (GTD) methodology. A checklist for your weekly review, areas of responsibility and projects are in a format that support the GTD system.
The projects template starts with a focus on the outcome and intention of the project. There is an area for brainstorming, research and next actions.
The weekly review template walks you through the process. This is great for someone who is starting out with the process. It has a section that highlights your personal and professional trigger list. Crucial for capturing those actions and items that are randomly floating around in your head.
You need to know that several of the templates are in each collection. You’ll find the same party planner and hiring template in the life and work section. In the life collection there are several templates to highlight.
The reflect and correct template helps you monitor what’s working in your life and what changes need to be made. In times of transition and overwhelm, this template can be very handy to track and monitor moods and the effects change have.
The menu planning template is especially helpful for busy households. An added bonus to the menu planning template is that you and your family can use Evernote for your grocery list.
The gift tracker template for birthdays and gift giving holidays can help you stick to a budget. It also ensures that you don’t forget anyone on your list.
