Systems Come Next

Got a great email from a reader about the value of systems for consistency and enabling you to do more. My reply -

Awesome email B, 100% agree.

I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I think you could define three stages towards becoming very very successful -

1. Basic learning/understanding: Figuring out what's worth training in/learning, what's legit, what isn't, starting to read the right books, figure out what to work, confront unpleasant reality when necessary, etc.

2. Start spending your time on what matters: Fitness, building, sales, connecting with people, interpersonal skills, etc, etc.

How to use Evernote: Capturing printed recipes

On Mike Dariano

I really enjoy using Evernote as my digital cookbook. I have a cookbook, in fact I have many cookbooks and they're all collecting dust - except this and this, the only two anyone would really need - since I began clipping recipes to Evernote. I've seen a lot of people sing the praises of scanning paper but I've found it's always been easier to just snap a picture.Last week I was visiting some family and a copy of Woman's Day was on the table. I flipped through and found this Spiced Chicken and Chickpea Stew Recipe. Well, I could have torn the page out, folded it enough to fit in my pocket, brought it home, lost it will all the other things in my pocket and eventually found it. Instead, I snapped this shot and have the recipe saved. Here's a few other tips for using Evernote this way.

If you want my note with this recipe, it's here.
