Since I first entered real estate in 2008 I have been searching and experimenting with productivity systems to help me stay organized and to streamline processes. After dozens of trials and failures I believe I have finally found the system that works best for me.
I first signed up for Evernote back in 2008. After playing with it for a few days I then moved on to other things. Evernote was a cool tool for note-taking, but I did not see how I was going to make it work for my real estate career.
Several years later, while still searching for the organization solution for my real estate business and while blogging at The Productive Dad, I ran across an ebook by Daniel Gold on Evernote and GTD (Getting Things Done… and that is an affiliate link). While I am not a really a GTD’er I did pick up a lot of information on how he uses Evernote.
After reading Daniel’s book I started looking at how I could implement his strategies into my systems. I started playing with the ideas in Evernote and all of a sudden the light came on.
I had used Evernote off and on over the last few years, but never really saw it as much more than a note-taking application. Now I was seeing the power and the more I used it the better my systems got. I started searching online for other agents using Evernote. I found a few systems and webinars, but I never found anyone that was doing what I was doing and sharing it.
So after talking to Bill Risser of Chicago Title and teaching a local class here I decided to start writing an Evernote for Real Estate ebook. I expect to be done the book by early May 2012 and have it available by mid May. If you want to enter for your chance to win a free advanced copy of the book enter your information above.
