Day 2: Life’s Master File

Day 2: Life’s Master File

30 Days to Becoming Unforgettable – Day 2

Here we go, now let’s get things off to a good start. Yesterday we gathered the records of our life. Now, what are we going to do with that information and the other items we shall be putting together? We need to have a system, a master file to be able to access, use, find, share at a moment’s notice.

I am suggesting several options on how to organize and set up your master files, but they are by no means the only way.

Option 1 – OneNote

OneNote is a now a free program that is available on both PC and Mac and is available at OneNote.com, if you don’t already have it on your computer as it is part of the Word Office Suite.

OneNote is an electronic notebook, with page dividers and tabs. An added plus is that you can access it not only offline, but can access it through any computer or smartphone through the cloud. You can create numerous notebooks, share them with others or being able to read them anywhere is extremely convenient and useful.

Option 2 – Evernote

Evernote is my digital brain, any information I save, I can quickly retrieve. It too has notebooks, but I prefer tags as the way to locate saved information. Evernote also has the capability to share between devices and with others.

You can also choose to store files on your computer and use options like Google Drive and Dropbox. The idea is have access to your information on any device, and to keep your records in more than one place as a security measure.
