I’m still a little on my productivity kick from going through the 4-Hour Workweek, so here’s my productivity tool of the week (don’t know how long this will last).

Evernote is a great tool that can help compile your thoughts and ideas in a safe and secure place.  Everyone should know that when you get an idea that you want to remember then you should write it down immediately.  But not everyone has a pen and paper available all the time.  Evernote is simple, and can be accessed from any computer with internet access, or almost any smartphone.  Simply log onto your account, open whatever notebook you want to add your note to, and write it out.

The benefits of using Evernote include being able to organize your notes into categories (called notebooks).  For example I have a notebook called American Resurgence Blogs where I write down anything I want to remember about blog posts and ideas.

You can also store images on Evernote, like things you see that you want to buy.  Simply take a picture on your smartphone, and send it to Evernote.

Evernote is also searchable.  After you’ve been using it for a while you will probably have quite a collection of notes.  It might end up being more difficult to find what you’re looking for.  In the top-right part of the screen you can enter into the search bar what you are looking for and it will search through your notes and bring any of them that contain what you’re looking for to the front of your screen.

This is just a sample of the benefits of using a program like Evernote.  It can be very organized, and can be accessed from any computer in the world with internet access.  It is a very useful tool for remembering idea that comes your way.

“Nudity is ok, But Don’t Tell Me About the Value of a Life”

February 8, 2010 at 2:23 PM (Values and Priorities) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This is in response to peoples’ response to the Superbowl ads yesterday.  There’s been a lot of buzz about the pro-life ad featuring Tim Tebow and his mother for weeks.  The question is, why?  The ad was so light that anyone who was offended is obviously extremely convicted, otherwise they wouldn’t be on the defensive.  Other commercials were so much more offensive, like the fact that the most scantily clad people were men running around in their underwear, the Go Daddy Girls had more clothes on this year.  Come on people.  Which one is really more detrimental to our society, people talking about the value of life, or people running around in their underwear? We need to reestablish our values as a country.  Aristotle said “tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.”  That is our problem, we are so tolerant about what is blatantly wrong, and completely apathetic when people attack what is right.  We’re already losing our country, and this is where it starts, in the little things.

Thomas Pain is Encouraged About Americans

January 7, 2010 at 2:13 PM (Lessons From History) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Last April Thomas Pain was encouraged with how the Americans responded.  Let us not forget this year the strength we began the last year with.  We need to build on it and be certain that we get our country back.  Listen to our brother’s words, and wake up to see what our country has become.  Then once you see the tragedy that has become America, do something to help us get it back.  God bless.

Do You Know Where Your Food Comes From?

November 4, 2009 at 6:55 PM (Health and Fitness) (, , , , , , , , , )

Episode 4 of the Wellness Resurgence is up.  This week’s topic is related to the documentary Food Inc. which poses the question: do you know where YOUR food comes from?  Many people do not know where their food comes from, or the process that gets it from the ground to your table.  Many don’t know the farmer who grows their food (if there is a farmer).  This is not the way things are supposed to be.  This documentary will change the way you look at food, for the better.  Please buy this movie and show it to your friends.

Buy Food Inc. from Amazon.com

Thomas Paine Tries to Stimulate America

October 31, 2009 at 10:50 AM (Lessons From History) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Thomas Paine returns to our time to help rally people together to help save our country.  The greatest stimulus package ever would be for the United States citizens to bring back the Constitution.  The Constitution, and Jesus Christ are what our country was founded on and we have removed both.  And as a result, our country has been in decline ever since.  Take back your country and listen to this voice from our past.

October 28, 2009 at 2:31 PM (Productivity) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

A new episode of the Wellness Resurgence is up.  Out of my little incident with laziness today I thought I would change the topic from prescription and nonprescription drugs to the idea of having clear cut goals and solid focus toward those goals.  Feel free to leave comments, and please rate the video and subscribe to the YouTube Channel.  Thanks friends.
