At work, I have a decent system in place to organize my browser bookmarks, emails (Outlook rules and folders, use of priorities and labelling), and notes (organized by day/folder on my Mac)
However, this behavior isn’t reflected in my personal life w.r.t. to the areas mentioned (my home pc’s bookmarks are in shambles, all notes are in one giant folder and search sucks on Windows, etc). My email (Gmail primarily) is really a ‘set it and forget it’ pit and I think something has got to give!
During my downtime, I’ll tackle the problem of my notes first. I’ve finally decided to pony up for an Evernote subscription and begun the task of copying certain notes over. Wish me luck!
