Few years ago, I received an email from an airline, that my milage points were going to expire. Unfortunately, I didn’t quite have enough to redeem a ticket.
However, I could redeem them for magazine subscriptions. As a result, I was able to subscribe over 10 mags. Subscription included Forbes, Inc., Fast Company, Fortune, Macworld, etc.
After a few months, I collected a stash of over 40 magazines that I couldn’t catch up with…until this weekend. Here is my technique.
Take notes or scan article into Evernote or other note capturing tool
That’s 10 mins per magazine…definite improvement from long magazine reading sessions, or just chucking them into the recycling bin…unread.
