I run a YouTube channel called Keep Productive, and post in a variety of places about “how to be more productive” — whether that is with tools, or with frameworks, I am a contributing factor.
With this post, I’m putting myself out of the job — aha — but these things do need to be addressed. I’m also always trying to look at the better way to portray content online, small step after small step.
Even in this article, I offer ✅ Advice: points… ironic!
At the heart of it, the space is crowded. The last 3–5 years have introduce…
This year for productivity has been super interesting, we’ve seen the release of Notion’s much anticipated API, new apps to help us work
Looking to the next year, what applications will be making that splash and impact in the productivity market.
Recently released and still in beta, Clover looks like an interesting approach to note-taking combining three core elements. Note-taking (with note-linking), daily journal/planner and a creative mood board/mind-map tool.
This approach is perfect for creative individuals looking to merge the way they take notes with their visual demos — from wireframes to diagrams. Something we’re all keeping an eye on in 2022.
About 12 months ago, I confirmed I had stopped using Notion.
Although I have a great respect for Notion and what they are doing, for my own personal use, I wasn’t gaining much more value than what Evernote provided me.
Along with that announcement, slowed my Notion content — it seemed to happen all at the same time.
Essentially, Keep Productive helps people match to a specific tool.
Helps them match with the one that is best suited for them. This doesn’t mean just one application.
Notion content had become harder and harder to keep up with, the specifics…
I believe that, whilst fantastic as they are for note-taking, both of these tools will not become household names.
When I speak household names, I refer to the popularity that tools like OneNote, Evernote and Notion have received over the years.
Roam and Obsidian both include what’s called “bi-directional linking” a concept coined by the note-taking community which simply means to connect one note to another, and build a relationship.
For many everyday note-takers — light to medium use…
Find yourself constantly distracted or maybe unable to truly focus on the task at hand. Whether it’s your next major essay or the deadline your boss has set, using the time slot to focus on the task at hand can be a lifesaver.
Choosing a handful or one focus app can help you to perform better during the workday and get that piece of work all done and dusted.
Mike Vardy, long-time Evernote user and world renowned productivity expert is leaving Evernote for a new note-taking application.
In a recent YouTube video, Mike Vardy has shared his recent decision to drop Evernote, why and what he’ll be moving to — let’s recap everything below!
Mike isn’t shy to using and sharing about Evernote — in the past he has been the biggest of advocates of the “most known” note-taking service on the market.
The reason quite simply for Mike leaving Evernote is the quality of the latest Evernote application. …
Evernote has had its fair share of hardships due to their lack of innovation across the last few years — with a lack of focus on product and more business strategy they’ve found themselves on the back foot in the productivity app market if you compare them to tools such as Roam, Obsidian and Notion.
Will Evernote be able to ever be a contender in the productivity market in the future. This is one of the life’s toughest questions…
Just for fun, I decided to see how much a productivity stack with the most premium of productivity tools would cost you per month.
We all know that productivity applications cost us a bit, but we’ve found the premium tools that we believe would help you get most stuff done, if money was no object.
PS. This is more for fun… Typically people will invest in tools they want to invest, not necessarily on all these.
