Made by Evernote Certified Consultant

THE SYSTEM2 is 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.

>> You can see my ECC certificate in the curriculum below. <<

There are three types of instructors offering courses about Evernote:

  1. Regular users offering their experience
  2. Certified Consultants who are officially recognized by Evernote Corporation after extensive training and final exam.
  3. Me, Evernote Certified Consultant who invented his own unique system based on GTD and Secret Weapon.

I've been using Evernote for almost 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.

4+ 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 the 4 years in it's 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 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 let's you use Evernote as task management system and reference storage at the same time


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 is unique primarily because it can be applied to any kind of business. It doesn't matter if you are 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!


At the core of THE SYSTEM2 is simplicity and power of two:


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.

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.

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, superfast.

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.

No Risk, Money Back Guarantee!

This course is guaranteed for a FULL 30 DAYS. If for any reason you don't feel like THE SYSTEM2 is for you or that the course did not meet your expectations, you will get your money back. No questions asked!

You Have Nothing to Lose, Only to Gain!

Take this course now. Take Evernote to the next level and find out why my friend call THE SYSTEM2 Evernote on Steroids! :-)

Hi, my name is Jan. I am Evernote Certified Consultant and the founder of THE SYSTEM2. I run online consulting business at ZAVREL CONSULTING where I explain my methodology for a life of happiness and fulfillment which I call THE FULL CIRCLE

I started my IT career as a Pascal programming language student in 1994. Later I discovered the potential of the web and co-founded WEBXP company, where I created websites and web applications for local businesses. 

In 2000, I started working for a German-based company Caatoosee, where I was the part of a team creating the top of the line web shop for than famous Breuninger Mode & Beauty online kaufen.At that time I also started my very own LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) project and designed, developed and published one of the first so-called discussion servers, that were very popular in my country years before the Facebook became the worldwide success. After 16 years, I am working on its comeback!

In 2008, when iPhone SDK was introduced, I moved to mobile apps world and soon published my first verb dictionary for iPhone which you can still find on the App Store. 

In 2015, I founded BOHEMIAPPS which evolved from simple iPhone app project to creativity platform focused on iOS and web development. 

In 2016, I decided to push my mission even further with SMART PROFIT SCHOOL. I believe that everyone can teach and SMART PROFIT SCHOOL is about helping newcomers start their own online teaching career. I also published my first book in 2016, THE DIGITAL INSTRUCTOR

In 2017 I focused primarily on productivity, became Evernote Certified Consultant, and published my second book, THE SYSTEM2.
