Description

Learn from professional - this course is made by Evernote Certified Consultant

The System2 is a unique methodology designed, created and tested by Evernote Certified Consultant (ECC). ECCs are recognized professionals with comprehensive Evernote training. Their hands-on guidance can help you and your team work more effectively and productively. I attached my certificate so you can check my credentials.

There are three types of instructors offering courses about Evernote:

  1. Regular users offering their own experience

  2. Certified Consultants who are officially recognized by Evernote Corporation after extensive training and the final exam.

  3. Me, Evernote Certified Consultant who invented his own unique system based on GTD and Secret Weapon to bring you the best of both paperless worlds, task management and document storage in one platform.

I can help you getting the most out of Evernote and I can connect you directly with Evernote managers to further work with you.


Do you know what's the biggest productivity obstacle?

Paper and folders! It’s not your fault, that you treat your electronic documents on your computer the same way you treat your paper documents on your desk. You are the victim as all of us because every operating system is teaching us to think this way.

Whenever you start your Windows, Linux or Mac, you’re welcomed by the desktop. There’s a nice icon of the dustbin and folders. Yes, initially when computers were something new and people were afraid of using them, desktops brought to this new and frightening electronic world something familiar.

These days, this familiar approach is the biggest obstacle of productivity and I will show you how to implement a truly paperless approach and start thinking in terms of tags instead of folders.


10+ years of experience with Evernote

I've been using Evernote for more than 10 years on both Windows and Mac platforms and I was always looking for the best way to use it, to squeeze the most of it. I tried almost everything, but I was never really satisfied with the results so I started working on my own system and methodology.

I took GTD and Secret Weapon and created something truly special, something that has no comparable alternative. Don't get me wrong. I constantly optimize my workflow, so since inventing the System2, I tried almost everything from Nozbe through Podio to Asana, but I have yet to find productivity system that will beat the System2.


6+ years in real world use

The System2 is the product of almost 6 years of trials and errors, testing, tweaking, and optimization. I've been using it for more than 4 years in its current version and it is the only productivity tool that supports all my activities. Thanks to the System2, I can keep track of all my errands ranging from my personal life to my businesses like Zavrel Consulting, Bohemiapps, Smart Profit School, The New Fitness and many more. 


One Productivity System for Everything

The System2 makes Evernote the only productivity system you will ever need. What's the most important feature of the System2? It lets you use Evernote as a task management system and a reference storage at the same time

This is a true game changer. Finally, you can have everything in one place:

  1. your documents,

  2. your tasks based on those documents.


At the core of the System2 is simplicity and power of just two types of notes, notebooks, tags and roles.

2 types of notes
Simplicity and power. The System2 brings you both at the same time. You will work with just two types of notes, reference notes, and task notes. That's all you'll ever need.

2 types of notebooks
A notebook isn't the ideal tool for organizing stuff. That's why you need to limit the number of notebooks to the bare minimum. The System2 uses just two types of notebooks. One is for storing reference notes, the second one is for storing task notes. Yes, it's that simple.

2 types of tags
Tags are the real power behind the System2. You will use two types of tags. Reference tags are divided into four categories. Task tags utilize a very special technique called Arrow Notation to further optimize your workflow. Ultimately, this tagging system will help you find anything, super fast.

2 types of roles
The System2 is built on the paradigm of two roles. A truly powerful productivity system needs to work as a task manager and a storage for reference materials at the same time. With the System2, these two roles are combined together efficiently and flawlessly. This is where it really shines.


Bonus: Book included!

This course is based on the book THE SYSTEM2: Productivity Toolbox Built on the Evernote Platform. This book is available on Amazon and was recently reviewed by Eric Nahler from SmartPeople. Eric praised the System2 and said that it was unique primarily because it could be applied to any kind of business. It doesn't matter if you are a programmer, lawyer, accountant or artist. The System2 will adapt to you and grow with you.

Every student of this course is eligible for THE SYSTEM2 book. I will personally send you a free copy as a token of gratitude for taking this course! Just drop me a line and the book is yours!

  • Evernote users who want to get the most of this amazing platform.
