Are there techniques or software tools that can help me record a series of steps involved in performing a task that I will have to repeat in the future?
This would be useful at work (I am a software engineer), doing home improvements, vehicle repair, or preparing for a trip. Having a set of steps would help my productivity because it helps, when performing step N, to know what step N+1 entails.
Evernote to remember things and store lists, so would be particularly interested in a solution that used Evernote. But most importantly would be a way to record the steps while performing the task the first time because by the time I am done, I have forgotten the steps. In other words a mental pattern that would help me record the steps as they are unwinding in the "figure out" stage so that I can later replay them.
Are there such techniques or even software tools that can help me do that? But it seems that taking a note of every attempt (which can be many before you ascertain it is the right one) would be too time consuming.
