|A good task management utility is a thing of beauty!|
Now, there are a number of schemes for using Evernote like The Secret Weapon. The Secret Weapon is a system of nested notebooks and tags that allow the user to mimic a digital version of David Allen's Getting Things Done task management system. I liked the idea of the system and began setting up my Evernote account according to The Secret Weapon's instructions. After a long evening of setting up notebooks, then endless tags that allowed me to categorize each task according to when, where, what, and who, I was ready to go.
But, then I started entering tasks and realized that, while the system was endlessly detailed and allowed me to sort my tasks in myriad ways, The Secret Weapon system is endlessly detailed. Each entry required at least 5 tags after entry. Sigh. There has to be an easier way.

So, how are you organizing your Savory life?
