How I use Evernote and Krumplr

Evernote is a dream come true for information hoarders like myself. In a snap, I can bring text, screenshots, photos, and files into Evernote, annotate them, and combine them into notes.

To fit different style of working, Evernote provides abundant tool options to choose from. On my phone, I use their iOS app and sharing extension. On my tablet, I use their Android app. On my Mac, I mostly use their native app and sometime their web UI. I also use the Evernote Helper that shows up in the Mac menu bar and the Evernote Web Clipper in the web browser. That covers all of my workflows nicely.

Gates, Buffet, Musk, and You

Bill Gates reads a lot. So does Warren Buffet. Elon Musk devoured books when he was younger. I don’t know if he still does, since I haven’t yet finished reading “Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future”.

Keeping up-to-date requires reading, usually a lot of reading. Blogs, articles, books. It doesn’t matter if you have your own business, manage people, or if you are an intern – we all want to read more. But as we all know, getting reading done is tricky. The days are too short and reading competes with all the other things we need to do.

3 Steps to Satisfaction and Happiness

“I always look for ways to get more things done in the time I have.” We hear this sentence a lot, particularly from leaders. It sounds good but it’s not quite right. What we’re really looking for is that warm fuzzy feeling of satisfaction. The satisfaction that we got things done, that we moved things forward, and that those things mattered the most. The satisfaction that we gained insights and now have more clarity. That makes us happy, at least a little bit.

iOS Sharing

iOS 8 introduced sharing as one way for users to share the data they look at in one app with another app. You can, for example, add the article you found in a Flipboard magazine to your Krumplr reading list without leaving Flipboard. You also can turn a tweet into a Krumplr to-do right in Tweetbot. Sharing works in Flipboard and Tweetbot and Thousands of other apps. It is a great and simple way to feed your favorite apps information you have in other places.

Asana Tasks

That’s right, Asana tasks have joined the list of to-dos that Krumplr can bring together for you!  Add Asana to your linked accounts in Krumplr, and you can add individual Asana tasks to any of your Krumplr lists or simply type ‘@asana’ to create a list that automatically contains all of your uncompleted Asana tasks across all of the workspaces and projects you have access to.  Of course, you can also create multiple Asana lists and configure them to show you just what you want to see.

Asana support is available today at krumplr.com and in our latest app release for iOS.

Check out the demo to see it in action.  Like what you see? Help us get the word out by sharing it…

No Gmail Missed Ever Again

If you are like us, you get your fair share of emails every day. Some of them cause real work. Work that you better track on your to-do list. For example, answering John will take up sufficient time so that you have to plan for it.

Early on, Krumplr started providing you with simple ways to turn a single gmail message into a to-do. You made good use of that. A few days ago we took the next step: Gmail lists. Gmail lists automatically search your gmail account and show all messages that match the list’s configuration. Nothing left for you to do manually.
