I am starting a YouTube series called OneNote LifeHacks. I will share detailed tips on how to set up OneNote to work for you. My system has 5 steps
- You wanting to change your habits
- Capture to OneNote collection section from all platform
- Processing and organizing information
- Prioritize using custom tags and find tags to create todo lists
- Executing on the lists and induce flow using the Pomodoro Technique
The system is heavily inspired of Getting Things Done, Inbox Zero and the Pomodoro Technique, and you can incorporate good habits that resonates with well with you. It is a robust system and all you have to do is to get started with the capture process and the rest you can do as a bonus
Check out my OneNote LifeHacks explained video
The YouTube series is based on my popular OneNote talk from MVP Community Connect in Madrid 2017 and my article on getting started with OneNote in structured way that I wrote in august 2016. The article has more than 6000 views and are still very popular. The video has over 11500 views and over 130 likes with good feedback. This is very motivational and makes me want to share more of my tips and tricks to succeed with OneNote and get stuff done using some productivity methodologies like GTD and the Pomodoro Technique
Catch me at Microsoft Ignite 2017 where I am talking about OneNote LifeHacks in a 20 minute theater talk. Will be happy to share tips and tricks in OneNote productivity
I am super excited to be picked out to teach productivity soft skills to the MVP’s and Regional Directors attending MVP Community Connection in Madrid June 1st. For the past year I have developed my OneNote productivity framework that I still use and succeed with. By borrowing and combining known productivity methodology such as take back your life, Getting Things Done and the Pomodoro Technique, I will talk about stuff you already know, but still need to be reminded of.
Why OneNote? There are three factors that works well for me with OneNote
- Flexible notetaking tool, you can paste anything anywhere and it works great with touch and pen.
- Syncs across devices through OneDrive with great apps for all operating systems including mobile.
- OneNote tasks are key and works the same on all devices so I easily can complete a task on my mobile.
It is all about getting a finite list of all your activities and thoughts so that you can prioritize and execute on the most important task at any given time. And the result? A happy life, and a productive life :) People who have tested the framework report back that a burden has been taken off their shoulders. Turns out that your mind is for having ideas, not holding them as David Allen says. By dumping everything in your head, you free up space to relax, enjoy the moment and focus on your current task at hand.
