Using Evernote As A Business Tool
How can you keep up with growing content on your website when it seems like there are so many new things to do everyday. It can certainly be exhausting and quite honestly time consuming. The daunting tasks of writing content, keyword research, seo, and of course keeping all of your work together are sometimes frustrating. However, these are just some of the things evernote can help organize!
Organizing your writing with Evernote
Using evernote to stay on top of organization
- Write down what matters.
- Sync with your calendar. If you have your most important notes in your Evernote, but they don’t align with what you actually do everyday you might want to add your notes to your calendar. This way you see the reminder and get to work on what matters most.

Ways to use evernote and google calendar to plan your days and schedule your content
Don’t prioritize your schedule, schedule your priorities. Seriously, make a list of your must do’s and add a few tasks you’d like to squeeze in. This can be a personal list, your work to do’s or a combination.
Once you have that list, mark your must do’s (start with 3).
Here’s a sample:
- Style + shoot for X.
- Write today’s blog post
- Clear out inbox
- Organize hard drive
- Write proposal for X business
- Update bio for instagram
- Schedule social media posts
- Plan meals for week
Schedule your tasks
Now that you know what you need to do, go ahead and set the time aside. Identify how long each task will take and give it a time limit. For instance, about 30 minutes to plan meals for the week means to use up to 30 minutes to create your shopping list, meal plan etc. Pick the times that work best and once you have your note go ahead and set a reminder for that note. It will appear in your google calendar and you will receive an alert letting you know to move on to the next task!
Time blocking is the most efficient way to get things done!
7:00-8:00 am: Get coffee + breakfast, get to work
8:00-8:15am: Set up to do list
8:15-9am: Respond to e-mails, social media, clear inbox
9-10am: Organize hard drive into folders and delete outdated info
10-10:30am: Tidy up workspace
10:30-12pm: Knock out writing for the day
12-12:30pm: Lunch + meal planning
12:30-2:45pm: Create social media graphics for accounts and schedule out calendar
2:45-3:15pm: Shoot prep + style
3:15-4pm: Shoot + pick best shots
4-4:25pm: Update bio + clean up profile
4:25-4:50pm: Write proposal for wedding
4:50-5:00pm: Clear inbox
5:00-6:15pm: Social media
6:45-7:30pm: write tomorrow’s list
7:30-9pm: self care, shower, skin etc.
Enter this into your google calendar and you’re done. You will receive alerts which makes it easy to wrap up tasks and move onto the next one.
The most important step is actually getting it done. Write your list and stick to it. Give yourself those 15 minute breaks to get on social media and email so you’re not doing it in the middle of another task!
