3 Ways to Backup Evernote (and Do You Need To?)

Unlike, say, Dropbox, Evernote does not offer a revision history, your content all syncs as-is.

The current approach feels more like a machine-gun approach, where I’m just trying to accomplish whatever I can, and hope that it gets me where I want to be. That’s not quite the way to achieve one’s life goals. So I decided to create the ideal system from scratch.

Learn How to Touch-Type With These 8 Top Tools & Tutorials

Learning how to touch type could mean the difference between 10 words a minute to more than 40. That could also mean the difference between adding half a day to your productivity. Or, more than that if you can clock 100 words per minute as most professional typists do. That’s why I sincerely believe that touch typing along with speed reading is one of the sacred arts of the digital age.
