One of the skills that is useful in life when it comes to managing your time properly is recognizing when to do something right away, and when it should be done later. An excellent tool for doing this on the internet is called Read It Later, a Firefox plug-in (and iPhone app) that allows you to archive sites for later reading.
When you come across a site that you know contains information that you need, but you are in the middle of another project, it is best to come back to that site at a later time. This is because switching from one task to another slows you down and when you switch tasks part of your mind is still focused on the previous task, so you work less productively. This is why it is better to focus on one project until you are done with it, before moving onto another task.
Normally saving sites to be read later can be somewhat awkward as you pile up potentially useful links. Bookmarks and tabs can build up fast and you can lose track of them, which can be annoying if you only intend to visit the site once.
Read It Later lets you archive sites to your hard drive or direct to your iPhone. It saves them in the order that you saved them and they can be accessed when you are not connected to the web. This way you can still access a site of interest on the subway or on the go, even if you don’t have a wireless connection.
