With the absolute deluge of information available online, updating every minute of every day, it’s really easy to be overwhelmed. Every platform seems to have a favourite, like, or bookmarking feature to identify the content that stands out. Apparently, you’re meant to save these for later.
How many times do you favourite and forget? How often do you put something aside to read later? How many of those articles sit, gathering virtual dust in an unknown part of your raft of data collection and recording systems?
Two things to do; firstly you need to read them immediately and annotate them with a tag or some other identifier so you can find them again. Secondly, share them. You can’t remember everything you read so use your contacts, relationships and networks to help you remember the good stuff.
