Staying Organized

Feb 26th, 2012 | Posted by | Filed under Indianapolis IT support

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to be more organized. It has been nearly 2 full months and things are looking up. One way I have stayed organized is through managing my note-taking. I used to have paper notes everywhere. Now, I use a few different products to make sure I keep my notes organized.

OneNote 2010

Microsoft’s OneNote 2010 allows me to create notes on my computer and/or my smartphone. This allows for mobility and consistency across the different technologies. If there is a change on my smartphone, it syncs to my computer. Also, there is added security so only I have access to my notes


This product is more for technical note taking. It offers simplicity for quick notes, but also has some advanced features that allow for changes to code and other tasks. This may not be for everyone, but is definitely a step up from Notepad.

TextWrangler and Evernote (Mac)

For all the Mac users, I have found there are a few options similar to OneNote. I briefly used Evernote and that has the mobile sync feature included in OneNote. TextWrangler is more basic, but it allows me to take quick notes and offers a few features missing in basic text editors.

Staying organized is important and manging your notes can help you stay on track.
