Every Minute You Spend Online Is an Opportunity to Learn!

When you are spending time on LinkedIn, Medium, Twitter, Youtube, or something else, look for opportunities to learn. Ask yourself:

Does this post/video add value to me? Do I want to remember it?

Do I want to see more content from this creator?

If any content adds value, save it digitally using a note taking app or Google/Notion.

Handling Text And Video Notes

Text content includes Kindle, Medium, Web Articles, etc.

Video content includes youtube, online conferences, etc.

Taking notes while watching videos online is very important. Think it this way: You know there is an awesome video about a topic that you watched in past. You want to review it for some work but don’t have enough time. If you had created notes while watching the video it would have been a matter of a few seconds. Because watching videos takes 10+ minutes but browsing through content with images and notes takes less than 2–3 minutes.
