  1. Urgent vs Essential | The Weekly Briefly

    On today’s show: choosing to focus our time, energy, and attention on creating something worthwhile instead of constantly checking our inboxes and trying to keep up with the “new” and “cool” and “urgent”. Because so long as our attention is focused on the urgent or the incoming, we won’t be able to do our best creative work.


    Henri Nouwen: “If I were to let my life be taken over by what is urgent, I might very well never get around to what is essential.”

  5. Technical Difficulties - 058 - Scanning

    Evernote Inbox

    Like Gabe, I have my ScanSnap import to Evernote by default. Beyond the ScanSnap itself, the key to keeping my scanning workflow as easy-to-use and frictionless as possible is maintaining an “Inbox” notebook so I can decouple the scanning and processing stages of my workflow.

    With a dedicated Evernote inbox I can quickly scan in several document sets, then figure out what to do with it all (what to call the notes, what to tag them, where to file them, etc.) at a more convenient time – usually “later”. If you find yourself being lazy like me and leaving a lot of time between processing periods, Evernote’s OCR saves you by allowing full search of the PDF whether you’ve figured out where to file it or not.

    This kind of search (especially while mobile) is what makes Evernote practically irreplaceable for me.

    Filesystem Inbox

    Like Erik, I also have “legacy” ScanSnap, but I’m not an Evernote user. I like batch processing as well, so my ScanSnap just dumps the OCRed PDFs into a folder within my Dropbox that I’ve set up to act as an inbox.

    Incidentally, the Fujitsu scanning software can be set to OCR after each scan using ABBYY FineReader, which Fujitsu includes with the ScanSnap. You can also use FineReader to OCR your PDFs in batches later, and the accuracy is very good either way. What I like is that the OCR data becomes a part of the PDF, making it searchable by more than just Evernote.
