I've read The Secret Weapon's system for organizing your life using Evernote.
It seems that Evernote is well suited as a digital filing cabinet and note taker.
However I'm not so sure it fits as a good task/todo list manager: Since I'm an engineering student all my to-dos come from h.w assignments or reading assignments (email clutter isn't a problem for me). These types of assignments don't require more than the title of a note (for example: 'finish calculus assignment'). Furthermore, when I'm finished with a note it's supposed to go into the 'Completed' notebook. This seems a bit of an overkill for notes that act as a h.w assignment reminders.
Why then does it make sense for me to use Evernote instead of Trello which offers me a visual to-do list? Should I still give Evernote a chance as a todo/ gtd system?
