Simplify Your Life Without Notion, Apple Notes, Google Docs, Evernote, and Paper

There are many benefits to writing things down. It helps you plan, think clearly, and remember things.

There are also many options for where to write things down. Notion, Google Docs, Evernote, and paper can help, but there is a simpler and more powerful solution.

What is Simpler?

Twos is an app and website to simply remember *things*. homepage

Twos is built to quickly write *things* down. Forget Notion pages, Google Docs, and losing or running out of paper.

Twos helps keep your *things* organized for life with a simple system of days, lists, & *things*.

How We Got Here

In college, I used Apple Notes to remember random information, Google Docs to journal and write essays, Evernote for class notes, and paper to study.

I have used shared Notion pages and also listened to friends express the challenge and time commitment to set up and maintain information in Notion.

How it Went

I found them inefficient.

Apple Notes was a mix of important and unimportant information leading me to not write many things down because I was uncertain if I would find it later.

Evernote was slow and notes were hard to find when I wanted to apply what I had learned.

Google Docs was also slow to load and it was hard to find syllabuses.

Lastly, paper and notebooks were quick and easy, but the information was hard to find and I no longer have them :(.

What Changed?

In 2015, I interned at Qualcomm and my manager suggested I write down what I accomplish for interviews in a year, five years, or 50 years.

I loved his advice and began writing down much more than what I was learning and achieving. I wrote down my goals, thoughts, experiences, and notes.

My goals and resolutions from 2017

I found remembering things felt good and I never knew what I’d forget or what I’d want to remember.

That summer, I had an idea to create an application to quickly capture any *thing* you wanted to remember and would stay organized for life.

I began building Twos (, an app and website to simply remember *things*.

How I Use Twos Today

For the past 6 years, I have used Twos every day. Whenever I think of something I want to remember, I write it in Twos.

A view of my list for Today

For thoughts, ideas, *things* I need to do, reminders (Twos uses artificial intelligence to easily set reminders), memories with my family… I quickly capture these *things*.

Twos helps me plan my days, set goals, journal more, remember meetings, remember *things* that matter to my friends and family… truly any *thing* I want to remember.

Having one quick and easy-to-use place for all types of *things* makes my life much simpler and I never worry about forgetting *things*.
