Digital notes are a great way to organize information that you want to keep. My philosophy is don’t hold onto post-it-notes or random papers unless you are storing them in an organized way. If you know that you will not be able to locate the notes or papers that you are keeping then why keep them in the first place? It only helps you if you can retrieve it when you need it. Apple does allow you to search for words in your notes making them easier to find. Just scroll down in your notes section at the very top and a search bar will appear. I’m not familiar with other phones.
If you want to keep track of Ideas, Books, To Do lists (when traveling or when you don’t have your favorite Planner or Notebook with you) and your current system is NOT working, then give this a try. Think of each note as a file or notebook. Label each note appropriately. Here are a few notes that I have:
You can easily share notes by pressing , then choose how to send your note (text or email). You can also collaborate on notes in iCloud. I hope this motivates you to start using digital notes in an effective way.
