Do You Have a KnowledgeBase for Success?

How do you keep track of important information? Do you know where everything is? Can you access the information you need easily and quickly? Is everything more or less in one place?

Years ago I started keeping a Book of Lists. It was a “list of lists,” if you will. The main list was in one place, but the individual lists were scattered about.

That’s all changed now. I have the most organized, accessible and useful personal knowledgebase ever. It’s a vast and growing universe of knowledge that allows me to manage several businesses, investments, a few special interests and my personal life.

But before I tell you about that, let me share with you a few of my lists. It should help you create and organize your own personal knowledgebase. And in doing so, sharpen your focus, clarify your priorities and concentrate your efforts more consistently (the 3Cs from The Achievement Code).

  • Books to Read
  • Decisions to Make
  • My Dream List
  • My Core Values
  • Goals to Achieve
  • Gratefuls
  • Habits to Acquire, Habits to Change
  • My Happy List
  • Income Streams
  • Investments
  • Key People
  • People to Meet
  • Places to Go
  • Problems to Solve
  • Projects
  • Questions
  • Top Movies
  • Tolerations
  • Win List

There are many more, but you get the idea. I use them to help me brainstorm, journal and plan. And these lists are only part of my personal knowledgebase.

You may look at them and think it’s a bit overwhelming and unwieldy. But I don’t find them so. In fact, since I started using OneNote, they’ve become even easier to manage and access.

OneNote, which now comes free with Office 2010, is what Shane Fielder calls Microsoft’s Best-Kept Secret. And he’s developed a training that is guaranteed to help you get twice as much done with less effort.

I can personally attest to that. I have never felt more in control of my life with my vast and rapidly growing knowledgebase. I’m more organized, better prepared, less overwhelmed and able to get things done much more efficiently.

There’s even a free app for my iPhone (also available for Android) that gives me access to all this information through my phone.

Almost every single bit of information I need is available to me anywhere. And that’s worth a LOT.

If you’d like to find out more about the very complete training Shane has put together (The Ultimate Information Manager),
I invite you to do so on this page . . .

The sense of freedom and power I have because of this system is something I want you to experience as well.

OneNote is the one program I never want to be without. Think of it as a library of information with unlimited notebooks, unlimited sections and unlimited pages. Begin building your personal knowledgebase of success today. And stop looking through dozens of different apps and locations.

I’m not sure we’ll ever get to a paperless existence, but this system can get you closer than anything else available. See what I mean here . . .
