5 Must-Have Notes in your Evernote Shortcut List

Daily Journal
I first started this daily journal habit years ago. It’s really quick. I note the day, weather, location, scripture and where my emotions are at. I learned this from Michael Hyatt. It’s the first thing I do when I sit in front of my computer in the morning.

My Weekly Template
This is simply my always-working-on template for running my week. Currently, it isn’t as task based as it used to be. Right now it is keeping track of some repetitive pieces of contacting that are important to me.

Sermon and Sermon Series Ideas
I have ideas in here that are YEARS old. I mean YEARS. All the way back to seminary. I don’t do big fleshing out in here…but I get the ideas out of my head to the level I will quit thinking about them. I might not ever use them, but I am letting that part of my brain work and wonder.

Things I Need to Do
Ok. This one can seem really weird. I have a running task list…most of them are medium levels of importance. This is a strategic list and it works hand in hand with my weekly and daily to-do list, especially when it comes to strategic tasks.

Yearly Goals
This is the newest. I made some pretty big goals for 2017. This note isn’t for working through these goals, just marking major milestones and bigger thoughts. I use this note to refer back to my goals pretty frequently, if not every day.

I hope these notes help you develop your own Evernote shortcut list.

Back Matter

Do you use Evernote and Trello? I have specific sub-pages setup for all my content relating to both of these. You can find them at revchadbrooks.com/evernote and revchadbrooks.com/trello.
