Wednesday Review – Pocket

Distraction is everywhere, and is especially heightened on the internet.  I may jump on the computer to quickly check my bank balance and send and email, and before I know it I am scanning the latest articles on my Facebook feed and completely forgot the reason I powered up my computer in the first place.   One click leads to another and I’m deep into a rabbit trail of reading that, while interesting and potentially enlightening, is not ideal at the moment.

Enter pocket.

Why did I not know about this website sooner?

So now, instead of seeing an article and feeling compelled to read it right now, neglecting what I was supposed to do, I can save it to my pocket and read later.
