How Things Changed With @Evernote

I have to be one of the most unorganized people on the planet. I have notebooks in just about every bag I carry. Multiple calendars and I still miss appointments. Slips of papers as reminders with some string of illegible thoughts on them, that, when I find them, I don't have a clue what I was thinking when I wrote them. I have more than 10 different types of projects going on at anyone time. Organization isn't really in my vocabulary. Well, let me say, it wasn't in my vocabulary. But it is now, thanks to Evernote. I had tried Evernote in the past. Ok, so what is it? To boil it all down. Here is a view of my current notebooks. So I have notebooks for work, personal and other work I do. I keep Evernote open on my computer at all times. In this notebook are notes for 3 presentations I did at a recent district technology conference.
