Evernote can be used that simply, and has additional features you may find useful if you choose to make use of them. For offline use, you'll need to get a Pro subscription. The offline sync has been flawless for me in the 3+ years I've been using it. Some additional ways Evernote can help make your commute productive: clip web pages into Evernote for ...

The whole concept of Undergrad studies is to build a foundation in the body of knowledge you chose to study. It is rather a matter of discipline to determine the optimal balance between depth of a subject and getting better grades. As an undergrad, you are required to have good breadth rather than depth and the examination system would attempt to gauge your ...

Ford Shorthand http://www.fordshorthand.com (devised by Michael Ford 2012) is a simplified alphabet that allows you to replace your existing longhand letters with ones that are very much shorter and quicker to write. It is similar to Teeline but, as it just replaces the existing written letters, it has no rules. Learning time is minimal, and, as there is no ...

Personally I don't think there's anything strictly wrong with your approach as it shows a real thirst for knowledge (though I may be slightly biased as my University only allowed the highest marks for knowledge beyond the given syllabus). The way I see that issues could arise is if you have limited space in your memory for all of the information or you run ...

Paper choice I've always been fine taking my math notes on squared-paper sheets. In my opinion, working with squares is way better than working with lines; also, working with plain paper would be the best way, but it is difficult to format notes properly without some guidelines. Instead, squared paper allows you to: Draw diagrams, figures, graphs et ...

With the info you've provided, seems like you just want software to organize todo lists and syncs between desktop/android. I would recommend GTasks or if you feel that it's too feature saturated, Google Keep is much lighter. They both require you to have a GMail account where you can access your tasks on the desktop. There are Chrome extensions/apps that ...

The problem is NOT your handwriting (well, not primarily your handwriting). The problem is this: I'm too impatient to write more slowly than my thoughts pop into my mind. There are three approaches that I take to overcome this problem: Use other, non- written methods where possible Type notes instead of writing them (I use Evernote for this, but ...

As the handwriting is the problem, we might find other approaches that will not use it. Something I do to take notes is using the recorder of my smartphone, as I always carry it around. May not be the best option if you are in a public place, but at least you will not be biased by your handwriting and you don't need to stop walking/driving to take your ...

I make heavy use of checklists (in Evernote) for a lot of processes, especially ones I do periodically, but not quite often enough to make them routine actions. The best way I've found to make good ones is to attempt to log every step as I perform it, then edit on reuse. Yes, that's time consuming the first time, and prone to missing things. Expecting to ...

As a system engineer I am basically in the same situation, and use Google Services or Onenote as my exobrain. As far as I can tell, it is very difficult to log a task as you do it. However, this seems necessary in the case where you only anticipate doing a task once, but want to record the steps involved in it. The only answer I can think of is: Do the ...

I could say I tried hundreds of them. However, none of them are enough and you have to use a combination of them. I personally use Workflowy as a primary productivity app but I have a special setup which I call it Workflowy Journal since I combined the idea of Bullet Journal with Workflowy. You can read about it here: Workflowy Journal. With this setup I am ...
