Sayz Lim’s tips on using Evernote kinda makes me want to revisit my decision to stop using Evernote. His tips are simple yet right to the point:

  1. Simplify your notebooks into inbox and archive only, then utilize tags.
  2. Avoid creating unnecessary notebooks. When you only have two notebooks, you simply save everything in Archives.
  3. Sometimes to stay organized is to stop organizing.

I used to be a quite heavy Evernote user when I was in college. The reason is simple: I hate writing in textbook and prefer typing on MacBook or iPad instead. Once I graduated, I use Evernote less and less simply because it becomes really bloated in my opinion.
