    Great video!
    I wanna know if you schedule and set a timer for the actions of the day in blocks or is it just achieving them without a specific time structure. Thanks 🙂

    Really clear explanation – thank you for the video. (I may be guilty of writing to do lists, so this has definetly changed my mindset on planning). Side note – why do you have to go to bed on an empty stomach?

    I totally love it

    Stefan, great video. I have used RPM in the past & present. I am not consistent with it but when I am it definitely moves me to attain my goals/outcomes. My problem is consistency & discipline. I'll check out the ever-note…but I think I like to write it out. BTW, love your site. You are very generous with your content and sharing. Outstanding example of applying what works and all that you've learned!

    This is MASSIVE! I always felt like I lost my purpose by just following a To Do list, but this synced up with a to do list will make sure that everything follows my purpose.

    Very helpful video Stefan! Thanks for sharing the RPM method and how we can use it through Evernote 🙂 This will certainly help to keep the yearly monthly priorities in order and move forward smoothly.

    You are a "machine" Stefan 🙂 Thanks for sharing this tool and how you use it. You are truly an inspiration!

  • Reply Growth Value May 10, 2016 at 10:20 pm

    Not a huge fan of Evernote (the software is clumsy) and I've lost data a few times with syncing issues across devices, but admittedly I have no good alternative. Interesting day planning techniques, though. I use the best self, self journal to plan out my day.

  • Reply nellas01585 May 13, 2016 at 2:35 am

    Thanks for the insight on how you use RPM/OPA in Evernote. As a long time user on Tony's RPM/OPA methods, I'd be curious to see if/how you use RPM and Evernote to conduct your Weekly Planning.

  • Reply Snir Alayof May 13, 2016 at 10:41 am

    One of your best videos in my opinion.

    I used to do "Getting Things Done" method by David Allen but I couldn't stick with it for too long, now I see that it was indeed a "to-do" list without emotions and purpose behind it.

    I was wondering how do you handle with "pop-up tasks". When you suddenly remember that you had to do something. Do you edit your "Today" note or anything like that?

  • Reply kimy D May 15, 2016 at 2:38 pm

    I use evernote too, it's really a great productivity tool.

  • Reply Holmes245 May 30, 2016 at 8:05 pm

    I can think of software for Windows that would be more ideal for this kind of thing than using Evernote. I would choose something more practical so you're not doing a lot of copy and pasting of tasks that didn't get done or reoccur and moving them to the next day. That seems tedious. Certainly there must be software out there for Apple users that would make this a little bit more efficient?

    Hello Stephen! My name is Dominique! Your video came JUST IN TIME! Was just looking for ways to refocus and this came across my account. Thank you so much for sharing! Going to apply this TODAY!

    Hey Stefan, Thanks for this, I have tried a few different methods of planning my day and none of them have stuck.
    I will give this a try and see how it goes.
    I would love to see how you lay out the rest of evernote If you get chance to do a video, that would be awesome.

  • Reply Lea Kennedy June 7, 2016 at 2:29 am

    Would you "please" tell me what screen share program you're using? I need to use one and nobody seems to want to be forthcoming in what they use. It would truly be appreciated. Thanks.

  • Reply Mandala1967 June 27, 2016 at 2:36 am

    Great video Stefan, I really liked the "could do's" list, rather than "to do's". Found this as a new user of Evernote, so flipped from here to Tony Robbins RPM in order to understand that more fully, and now feel much more on track now for achieving my life goals. Big thanks for your clear explanations!

    I'm going through RPM for about the fourth time now and I've been trying to find an app to do RPM 100% with. Maybe Evernote is that app. I have a few mechanical questions though for how you implement it:

    – Do you only plan your days within Evernote? I'd love to see another video for people who understand RPM and want to see a complete implementation from a mechanical standpoint (apps, workflow, etc) that covers the whole RPM method (Vision, Purpose, Roles, everything)

    – How do you keep this updated with your calendar? Do you schedule calendar events separately? Or do you somehow organize calendar events from within Evernote?

    – How do you organize projects? I was thinking of using note links within Evernote to link "Key Outcomes" in Projects down to the Day RPM level. How do you keep things linked together so you can keep Key Action Items and all this together?

    – Is Evernote the best app you've tried for RPM? Have you tried others? What are the benefits and drawbacks? Have you tried Trello or any todo apps and tried to make RPM work within them?

    Hey Stefan. I am also using Evernote but my layout looks very different from yours. Are the windows and apple version different?

    Executing RPM in an app or software is really difficult! Stefan, did you get the idea to use Evernote for RPM when you attended Business Mastery this past summer? And what do you think about the value of 'writing down your goals' versus typing them in Evernote? Would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Great video!

    Almost all of this makes sense, but I'm not sure how to relate this to my monthly to weekly to daily. Then I don't know how to feel satisfied in the day?

  • Reply How To Write Pro November 17, 2016 at 2:02 pm

    I like your integration, and using a separate note for Daily RPMs, is there a certain structure you breakdown as far as organizing the Notebooks like a diff Notebook for Driving Force, Personal Categories, Prof Categories, Enterprise etc. That's the way I had it at first, but your daily format is awesome! Thanks!

    Hey Stefan, when you do your daily evernote RPM do you copy and paste your goal everyday but change the purpose and action plan?

  • Reply Patrick Barnaby January 8, 2017 at 10:13 am

    Thanks Stefan for such a great example of using RPM. I think I'll start using Evernote + RPM or even create my own Planning system. Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.

Definite paradigm shift for me. Can't wait to start applying RPM using Evernote, I can easily merge this with my system.

  • Reply Snowcloud MX Punto de Venta en la Nube March 30, 2017 at 7:48 pm

    Great video, I installed the app. One question, do you create separate notebooks for each area of your life, or is the RPM plan shown in this video always done with a note made in the same notebook?

    Hi Stephen, in your video back in Jan 2015 titled 'How to Plan Your Day for Optimal Productivity', you were using pen and paper which you mentioned helped you in your thinking process, as opposed to using a keyboard. Would like to hear your thoughts whether moving digital i.e. Evernote changed anything
