Like your email inbox, your calendar may not be super friendly to you. It's tough to keep up to date. It's always overrun with meetings other people assigned you. Making room for important items isn't always the first thing on your mind.

This set of Zaps help you take back control of your time so that you can do the things you want to do, when you want to do them.

Evernote is a great tool for helping your organize your life. It only makes sense that you'd like to organize your schedule from Evernote as well. The good news is you can easily create Google Calendar events straight from Evernote.

Just make sure to give your Evernote notes a title that Google Calendar can understand like "Lunch with Jill tomorrow at noon" or "Proposal meeting with Jack at 10am Thursday."
