You get a  nice note in the mail. What do you do with it? Having a system for organizing those little things is a big thing.

So what do you do with the nice note? Put it in a scrapbook? Perhaps. That saves items chronologically.

But what if you want to keep those memories organized around the people who created them?

This video shows how to use Evernote to create a note for each person who is important in your life. Watch as you see how to record bottom-up the notes from your significant interactions. Using your phone’s camera, you’ll be able to turn that hand-written note you received into a digital memory.

Your notes about that person will stay together. The text in the handwritten notes will be searchable.

Shout-out to Jason Womack for being for inspiration in the area of hand-written notes. If you aren’t familiar with his work, start by reading You Best Just Got Better and Get Momentum (co-authored with his wife Jodi.

You’ll be able to find what you’re looking for. Even better, you’ll also find what you weren’t looking for, because you forgot you even had it.
