How to Use your iPhone to Apply Success Principles

image

About 40 years ago, I read Napoleon Hill’s timeless classic, Think and Grow Rich (Kindle version $ 0.99). Hill interviewed hundreds of turn of the century magnates such as Andrew Carnegie and Thomas Edison to discover what makes people successful. Hill’s books, as well as other “success literature," had significant influence in my subsequent success as an entrepreneur and magazine publisher. Having a clear intention, committing to it, and persisting are fundamental themes in most success literature. 

In my recent May/June 2013 iPhone Life magazine iView column, I wrote about a lecture on Steve Jobs and a course I taught on consciousness and entrepreneurship at Maharishi University of Management. After reading the column, Oscar Andermo reached out to me. 



Evernote — the 'Getting Things Done' Software Solution?

image

In iView—my inside, back-cover column in iPhone Life magazine—I discuss David Allen’s “Getting Things Done” organizational and time management scheme in the July/August 2013 issue. In the article, I briefly summarize Allen’s thinking and suggest iPhone, iPad, Mac, and PC software to best implement it. Since writing the article, I’ve settled on Evernote (free), and am quite pleased with it.

Here, I will post much of the article and will add more information about Evernote. If you would like to comment and add knowledge from your experience with the software, that would be great.

Really enjoy reading on iPhone 4

I actually got an iPhone 4, yesterday, a day early due to some lucky mail fluke. Today I tried FaceTime with blogger Todd Bernhard. Todd will probably write about it here and/or in our next issue. I also used the flash in the camera. I liked both features, although both have a ways to go. However, what I was most impressed with based on what I will get the most use of is the ebook reading experience.



iOS 4 For iPhone Expected today

It is likely that Apple will release iOS4 for the iPhone today, perhaps around 10 PST. iTunes will update you automatically on the date listed in Summary. To proactively update your iPhone, in iTunes click on your iPhone (under Devices on left column). Then in Summary screen click "Check for Update".

The feature I am most looking for is folders. That will allow me to place icons for all my iPhone Apps on the iPhone . The other feature I look forward to, multi-tasking, will evolve in its usefulness overtime, as developers conform to iOS4 API.



Nokia vs. Apple

No, this is not about Nokia’s suits against Apple for patent infringement. (I think the end user is the loser in most such legal battles.) Rather this brief essay is about Apple and Nokia’s approach to innovation.

Microsoft prototype of 2-panel tablet rivals iPad

I am REALLY liking my Apple iPad. In fact owning an iPad made my mouth water for the Microsoft Courier. You can see some great demos of a prototype or the 2-panel Microsoft Courier at Engadget. The Courrier is more business oriented rather than for the consumer.
