Like everyone, I often run into interesting content that I don’t have time to read then and there. Bookmarks to the rescue!
But then I end up with a mountain of bookmarks. After years of experimenting, I’ve finally come up with an effective system.
Bookmark things in chrome (or your browser of choice) as you find them.
Roughly once a month, make a few folders to try and do some basic grouping.
About once every 6 weeks, remember that you’d seen an interesting link on a specific topic, but you can’t seem to find it.
At about three months, realize you’ve now bookmarked more content than you could read in a month. Declare bankruptcy, delete all links you can’t read in that sitting, and start over.
In a later post, I plan to apply this same technique to handling email.
