10 Apps & Tools for Maximizing Personal Efficiency

October 24th, 2012   |   by Frank Addante

1.  Sanebox (Email Organization):

Service that uses algorithms to organize your email into what’s important and what’s not.  I was skeptical and had a lot of issues with giving up control of my inbox, but I’m hooked now.  It works amazing well.

Tips:  Trust it.  Check @SaneLater twice a day, @SaneBulk whenever you feel like reading newsletters, promotions, etc. and use @SaneBlackHole for all of your junk that you never want to see again.

2.  Evernote (Notes Organization): 

Service to store your notes in the cloud and access on any computer or mobile device.

Tips:  Use for both business and personal.  I take all of my meeting notes directly in Evernote.  I scan/fax documents to Evernote that I want to keep.  On the personal side, I take photos of wine that I like and store them in a notebook called “Favorite Wines” and keep copies of all of my critical documents (driver’s license, passport, insurance documents, etc.) in a notebook called “Wallet.”
