Productivity Toolbox

This year I opted for simplicity and centralized knowledge. I have abandoned a lot of tools and kept only a few of them. The main reason was to manage tools and not being managed by them.

Tools I use for my personal life and work.

  • DEVONthinkA smart document management which helps me externalize memory, collect, analyze, summarize and keep my data organized in a central repository. Its built-in artificial intelligence function automatically classify’s new information based on how you filed similar documents. I use Devonthink to store only my private data.
  • Evernote  A digital note-taking app used to capture  notes from books I read, particular phrases or passages clipped from the web, important notes from my daily work, scanned receipts, documents I receive by mail, ideas and everything else I have on my mind. My word processor for short stories and articles.
