Evernote is one of the most powerful note-taking tools in the world, and the classic system Getting Things Done (GTD) details one of the most popular productivity methods. Combining the benefits of both tools, The Secret Weapon (TSW) is a productivity system that will make people think you have super-powers. Ready to accomplish more of your goals while staying far more relaxed? Read on.
The basic idea of GTD is simple. Our brains waste a LOT of energy holding onto tiny details (from remembering the milk, to that meeting you should be preparing for). With GTD you get those details out of your head and into a low-energy system.
Unlike a clutter of lists however, this system feeds you the details only when you need them. This frees your brain power to focus on creatively getting things done, and gives you more time to ponder the big goals you want to accomplish. The Secret Weapon used the brilliant system in GTD and applies it to our busy smart phone, laptop filled world using Evernote.
Now I’ve used Evernote for years, and it’s impressive, but it wasn’t until I found The Secret Weapon that it turned into a tool that literally doubled my productivity. In fact, the more I follow the system, the more I get done.
Ready to get started? On The Secret Weapon home page you will find a series of 10 short videos detailing an overview of the system, how to set it up using tags (like the ‘What’ ‘When’ ‘Where’ Who’ examples below), and then how to use it. Getting this system started takes a few hours of work, but you’ll easily make that time back up with your new found efficiency.
It’s free, it worked for me, and I can’t recommend it enough.
