As information becomes more plentiful, we are bombarded with relentless forms of media 24/7, such as blog posts, videos and photos. Our computer hard drives are also getting bigger and bigger (500GB hard drives are not uncommon). This means we have a huge amount of media material on our computers and no practical way in which to organize it all.
Your brain, amidst all this mess and disorder, just can’t keep up with what it has to remember. The mental filing cabinet begins to overflow and you start to get all muddled. Enter Evernote to bring order to that chaos. With Evernote, you can transfer the contents of your brain to your computer. Everything you need to remember can now be stored in your Evernote account for future browsing and searching.
