Un-Hoarding

Accumulating open tabs in your Web browser can be a waste of time. Will you ever read it later? Worst is if you save it in a list to be read somewhere in time. It’s better to save immediately any web clipping according to the potential action you can take over it. Reading it is only the first step, what did catch your attention about it? You should archive it or better extract the bits you deem relevant to be found again in a specific place related to a specific project or action. It is still an illusion of productivity and a “who know when it will be useful” so you need to create a workflow where you are continuously reviewing and reorganizing your notes according to their purpose. When should you do that? Each time you find something useful and you want to archive it. Leave the note better than how you found it.
