I have slowly been making my way towards the paperless office, both at work and at home. It’s been a steady process, but there is still some ways to go. One of the best resources for going paperless is Jamie Todd Rubin, the Evernote Ambassador for Paperless Living.
For those of you who are looking at starting the paperless process —maybe a New Year’s Resolution— Jamie has posted a Primer to Going Paperless in 2014. In the article he gives a roadmap with 5 phases to going paperless.
“There are 5 main phases to the process. If you go through each of the 5 phases, you should at the end, find yourself growing increasingly paperless day-by-day. That said, if you have already completed one or more of the phases, you can use this as a guide as to where you might go next.”
Phase 1: Select your tools
Phase 2: Determine your processes
Phase 3: Organize your notes
Phase 4: Practice good online security
Phase 5: Go mobile
If you’re already an Evernote user, this will help you tie-in your paperless processes to that service. If you’re not using Evernote, why aren’t you? This will show you some of the benefits of using Evernote as a tool for going paperless.
