  1. Yes, Evernote is pretty similar to OneNote, and Evernote's mobile versions are very popular and seem better than OneNote's current ones. I also considered Evernote in the past; I'm knowing Scrivener and Instapaper now thanks to you, and I think they can be useful for people I know, depending on the use case. Although I prefer .org files also on mobile for the most direct integration, some people use Evernote and Org-mode together. The two can integrate using Emacs evernote mode and org-post-subtree-to-evernote. In fact, many systems and resources can integrate with Emacs Org-mode. In general
  2. On Scrivener and Org-mode, I've just seen an interesting discussion, "Org Writer's room", among Org-mode users talking about Scrivener, with screenshots, etc. (see it in one page or thread). They recommend Emacs Speedbar for quick file navigation similar to Scrivener's. I'm using good old Emacs Dired with custom keybindings such as Shift-F1 for this, but the graphical, resizable and movable Speedbar (see a screenshot) seems user friendly indeed, and both mouse or keyboard can be used for file navigation with Speedbar, like with Dired.
  3. Another alternative to Org-mode is MS OneNote, user friendly like Scrivener. OneNote is an alternative to the note-taking aspect of Org-mode rather than its publishing aspect. Time ago I was considering to use OneNote, but ended using Emacs Org-mode for the reasons I've mentioned, among others. Also, Org-mode is multi-purpose, and an advantage over Scrivener for the publishing aspect is Org-mode's export to LaTeX, DocBook, etc. On the other hand, both Scrivener and Org-mode can export to ODT, PDF...
  4. Thanks, I've just looked into Scrivener, really interesting and user-friendly. I think probably they can interact via import and export, for example: Org-mode <-> HTML <-> Scrivener. The HTML -> Org-mode import can be done with Pandoc; the rest, with Org-mode's export, and Scrivener's import and export. Also, it seems .scrivx files use an XML format, so in theory they could be created directly, customizing org-export-generic; I think this method could keep the project structure. Personally, I prefer open source Org-mode with its plain text files and lightweight markup format (f
  5. And thanks for your kind welcome. By the way, I think an interesting implementation of this kind of Ivy Lee priority task lists is included in the open source Emacs Org-mode:
  6. All right, I've seen a couple more sources on the relationship between Napoleon Hill and Earl Nightingale, and it's confirmed that they knew each other and cooperated for some projects. In the seemingly well-researched book A Lifetime of Riches: The Biography of Napoleon Hill, by Michael J. Ritt, Jr. and Kirk Landers, the authors try to be factual telling both Hill's successes and failures. Hill himself talked about his mistakes not applying to his own life his research findings about remarkable people, on the other hand successfully applied by many of his readers. Ritt, one of the authors, w
  7. About Napoleon Hill, although people often attribute that Ivy Lee story to him, and although he seems indeed the most likely origin of the story, I have not been able to verify it with a reliable source. For example, one of the many people attributing the Ivy Lee story to Napoleon Hill is Dave Albano, who says about it: "this is the same technique handed down to me personally by my friend and mentor Bob Proctor, the very same one handed down to him by Earl Nightingale, who had it handed down to him by the legendary Napoleon Hill... the Father of Personal Development." It's true that Bob Proct
  8. There is another version from 1960, previous to Mackenzie's "The Time Trap" (first published 1972). A quote of what I wrote about it on the talk page of Ivy Lee's Wikipedia article:
