Being an intellectually curious obsessive nutcase when it comes to human performance, I consume a lot of new information. The high cost of task-switching between deep work and consumption makes it a bad idea to consume info haphazardly. Here’s what I do instead:
– Automatically or manually move content to the pocket app
– Consume blogs, articles, podcasts, etc. during a scheduled “reading list” appointments I make throughout the week
Without rules and systems for important things, bad habits form – or at the very least, good ones don’t. Batching and scheduling tasks rather than waiting until I “have time” has proven useful.
