Evernote ($12) is an app that helps you keep track of all of your brilliant ideas that often occur in the most inconvenient places (traffic, deli line, waiting for a train). The Evernote app is available at all times through your computer, phone, tablet, etc., so you will never miss jotting down one of your million-dollar ideas!
Joshua Zerkel is the director of global community and training at Evernote, and he explained why so many people get overwhelmed when trying to organize their lives. "That overwhelming feeling stems from information overload," Zerkel said. "We are inundated with content that we create, content that is sent to us, and content that is found organically, and it is natural for anyone to be unsure where to begin when it comes to tackling that organization process. One way to begin is to start with the old-school method of making a list of your biggest priorities. Doing this before you begin anything else will help you reduce distraction and anxiety around what's in front of you."
