I recommend that you get yourself a read later app. The two popular ones are instapaper. And pocket. So those are two that are popular. I happen to be using instapaper. But I know pockets popular with a lot of people. The benefit of these read later apps is you’re often find some longer article online. And you want to read it, but you don’t want to read it right there in the moment. And also reading it on websites, often there’s all these distractions, and so forth. So the nice thing about these read later apps is you can save it. And then at some other time, when you’re not, you know, right in the middle of work, you can go back and find those articles that you wanted to read, instead of at that point, like just opening up the news. You can also just auto forward emails to your instapaper. For example, I subscribe to the browser, which I highly recommend, and the browser each day recommends five longer form articles. So I just forward that email from the browser to my instapaper. And I open up instapaper can check those articles out, and then open up the ones that that are interesting. Longer articles, it’s great to save. So it’s not necessarily the place that you want to, you know, have as your quote unquote, second brain. So instapaper is not really a replacement for, let’s say Evernote, if you want to save something for the longer term, you could save it to, you know, Evernote, or notion or another kind of sort of second brain app. But instapaper pocket very useful for just saving things that you want to read at some point, either longer emails, if you get some, if you saw if you subscribe to various email newsletters, various sub stacks, for example, which are becoming more and more popular, you could just set up an auto forward in your email. So all of those get sent to your instapaper and then you can read them at your leisure. And if you find one in instapaper that you really like and you want to keep for the long term, then you can save it to Evernote. So that’s it for this episode.
