Productivity hack – Using evernote to context switch
Everyday, we do different set of tasks that we want to do more effectively. Task can be anything, be it writing blog, working on project A, working on project B, or bill payments for expenses. These tasks can be classified on the basis of context.
A context for any task can be defined as things that were in your mind the last time you were doing that task. For example, you are working on project A and you feel like you are done for the day and want to start writing something or maybe complete some unfinished blog post. Now, this requires context change from “Project A” to “blogging”. This context comprises of all the information to get started, from unfinished posts to new ideas that you were having last time.
You try to remember what you wrote last time, you check your wordpress drafts, and you look for text documents where you have written new ideas. All these things take time. And, this cost hampers your productivity. You never know, this may lead to another reason for procrastination.
