I love quotes. I love to hear and say what someone else has said. A good quote from a respected leader gives credence to a position. I’ve never been very good at keeping quotes because I’m just not that organized. I heard John Maxwell talk many times of how he has kept quotes on 3X5 cards since he was seventeen years old. I admire him for that. Again, I’m just not that organized.
Thankfully the technology age has and is bringing us tools that make being organized easier. I am trying my best, as much as finances will allow to stay as close to the technology wave as possible. I recently went completely Apple with my computing. I started when I received an iPad a couple of years ago for Christmas. When it was time to get a new phone I left Blackberry and went with an iPhone and recently changed from a PC to a MacBook Pro.
One of the great tools I have become acquainted with over the last few months is an application called Evernote. I had an Evernote app on my iPhone for months before I started learning how powerful this tool is.
Now keeping quotes are a breeze. I just put them in the Evernote app, which I have on my MacBook, my iPad and my iPhone. Regardless of which device I use to input quotes or anything else for that matter it automatically syncs with the other devices. Now the quotes I save (easily) are always at my fingertips. No digging through card files (sorry John Maxwell).
I have to thak Michael Hyatt the former CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing for making me aware in one of his blogs of just how useful Evernote is.
