Staying organized, or even getting organized in the first place, can be tough. You take notes on the backs of business cards, on napkins and in the margins of any printed material that’s handy. Unfortunately, it’s probably more common to lose these notes, or lose track of what you meant when you wrote them down.
The advent of smartphones provided a handy tool in your hand to take notes. But by the time you found the notes app, you’ve either lost your thought or the speaker who spurred on the idea has changed topics.
Laptops and then netbooks seemed to solve the problem of taking notes, but if you didn’t already have the computer turned on and the correct program already running, forget about it. You’ll never jot your thoughts down as you have them.
