Hence I've resorted in the last couple of years to write everything down:
- on paper
- yellow post-its
- on todo lists
- I've tried programs such as EverNote and Onenote.
- I use the notes program on my Nokia E61
And so far what seems to work best for me is add an icon to Notepad on my PC, and create on the fly a note for myself for anything. Hence my screen on my PC at home is cluttered with notepad notes. But when I close them or save them, I SELDOM ever reopen them, and start writing up all of that again.
On my new mac, I'm using Stickies (came with MacOSX); on my PC I've tried the 3M electronic Post-It program. Crap.
The problem ? I need a unified way to deal with my thoughts, with my links (I've been using del.icio.us quite a lot lately: I love the shortcut on the firefox extension: 1-click !), and make all of the stuff searchable with categories.
Somehow, OneNote doesn't work for me, and the files are local, I need them to synchronize accross my computers (what .mac does for PIM is GREAT! and I'm sure the guys at SharpCast aren't solving this yet.
Help ! :)
