We are swamped! We are inundated with access to so much great information that we want to read, but the majority of the time when we find it, we’re not in a place to sit down and read it.
One of the great things about how connected we are is that we should never want for articles that are relevant to us. Yet sometimes we find ourselves still hunting for something that is interesting or useful to us.

These days you should be able to build a list of articles you want to read, and then access them later at your convenience. In fact, there are quite a number of services that do exactly this, and I’d like to introduce you to my favorite one: Pocket.
In today’s tutorial I’d like to show you three different ways which you can use Pocket to save articles (and videos!) to check out when you have a few minutes to actually pay attention.
Pocket actually downloads the articles right to your device if you’re running the app on your phone or tablet, so even if you find yourself offline, you can still read. Perfect for those times when you find yourself in a boat in the middle of a lake with no wifi! Seriously though, there are still plenty of times when I find myself without access to wifi, and a lot of those times are the perfect opportunity to catch up on some productive reading.
With Pocket you’re going to have the content, now you just have to make the time to read everything you’ve always wanted. If I ever figure out how to make unlimited time, I’ll let you know!
