Chats with Evernote


If you followed the Vague Direction bicycle journey as it was happening, you may’ve seen the Evernote logo on the Vague Direction website. They were friends and partners throughout the trip, and I don’t think I could function properly without their productivity tools, which have become an external brain and a place to document everything – from the everyday to the more bizarre. As David Allen of GTD says, “your brain is for having ideas, not for holding them.” And it’s true!

Recently I spoke with them about the workflow used whilst writing the book, as well as the value of grit, creative labours of love, writing terrible rap songs, and more. It’s over on their blog. Hope you enjoy it!
