I’m trying to find a piece of information I recorded over the summer, and I can’t find it. The problem is that I don’t have one system. I save some thoughts in Evernote, some in Google Docs, and some in OpenOffice documents or text files. Usually, I remember where I entered a piece of information, but right now I feel flummoxed.
Unfortunately, the “cloud” is not always reliable, and right now the search function in Google Docs is not working. I like Evernote because information is saved both on my hard drive and in the cloud, and I can easily access it on my iPhone. However, I don’t record my every thought there. (It would be nice if they had a spreadsheet function!)
What system(s) do you use to record your thoughts and save your ideas?
