Do You Have What it Takes to Lead?

Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap. – 1 Timothy 3:2-7 (NIV)

Basic Text Formatting in OneNote

I just uploaded another short video to YouTube; this one is on formatting text in OneNote. If you’re brand new to using computers, or just in need of a quick refresher, I think this will be worth your time.


Sandy Morgan on Using OneNote in Her Small Business

I ran across a great post on the Microsoft Office blog this evening. It was written by Sandy Morgan, who talks about how she uses OneNote in her small business.

It’s a quick read, and she has several good ideas and suggestions. The one that I had never thought of is keeping track of regulatory requirements in a separate notebook. It’s a great idea for an easy and convenient way to keep track of the regulations that pertain to your small business.

He Who Must Not Be Named

For Harry Potter fans:

All the wizards and witches were afraid to say Voldemort’s name aloud, for fear he’d be able to track them. So to me, that sounds very similar to a magical version of Google Alerts, where you get notified by email every time a word or phrase comes up.

But here’s the thing: all the wizards and witches used a very distinctive phrase as a substitute his name: “He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named”. So why couldn’t Voldemort just set up a magical alert for that phrase and achieved the same results?

Just something to ponder.

Adding Tables in OneNote

I just uploaded a short video to YouTube on how to easily create a table in OneNote. It’s not hard to do, but sometimes it’s easier to see something done, rather than figure it out from a description.


Updates to OneNote Free

Great news! I just found out that the free version of OneNote has had many, if not all, of the annoying feature restrictions removed. That means you can now use password protection on sections, insert Office documents or other files directly in your notebook, and more. For more details, I’d recommend visiting Paul Thurrott’s blog. Enjoy!
