I consume a lot of content online.
But the more I consume, the harder it is to absorb the lessons. Which defeats the purpose of consuming content in the first place. So over the years I’ve developed a system that helps me consume and review content more intentionally.
It’s a very simple system, made up of 3 tools that I recommend to every person interested in absorbing more of the content they consume online.
Here are my favorite tools to curate and review online content:
1. Readwise: it’s an app that gathers my highlights from my Kindle, my Pocket, my tweets, and then resurfaces 5 of them in a daily email allowing me to review the most important concepts regularly.
If you use my link to sign up for Readwise, you and I get a free month of Premium ($8.99 value)
2. Save to Notion: Notion is my main knowledge hub. Save to Notion is a Chrome extension that allows me to easily capture information from a webpage and save it directly to my Notion together with highlights, comments, links and everything else in it. Then I can tag the page and reference it when needed.
3. Pocket: This is a reader app. Whenever I stumble upon something I want to read but not now, I save it to Pocket using the iOS extension or the Chrome extension. Then, when I have some spare time, instead of mindlessly browse social media, I open up Pocket and I see stuff I actually know I want to consume.
These are the tools that make up my curation and consumption stack.
