Hopping down rabbit holes? Save it for later

Online distractions

I’m a naturally curious person, which can lead to wasted time going down internet “rabbit holes,” where one topic connects to information on a dozen or more fascinating subjects that I can’t help but be interested in. Sound familiar?

To better manage my productivity, I’m going to try something that entrepreneur Caterina Fake practices. She keeps a “when next online” notebook next to her computer and jots down the subjects, names and websites she comes across while working on a project online.

Rather than getting sidetracked from her current project, she consults her notes next time she has free time.
