@justindirose, I tried to go a bit deeper into the topic of ‘Input’ this week! Hope you enjoy.

@drewcoffman yes for sure!! I realized I’m totally the same way and it’s why I have such a hard time using paper vs. electronic methods for note taking and archiving. I WANT TO SEARCH IT!!! but paper is so nice.

Looks like @drewcoffman had even more thoughts on this.

Man, I’m also guilty of data hoarding. I have tons of articles in my DevonThink databases just waiting for me to read. Eventually I had to get an OmniFocus “reading” project just to go through every folder. Sometimes I’ll go through an article to dig something out of it and find that one nugget that I can use in my daily life. Most of the time, I’ll like to read it once and then delete it forever. I don’t have that paranoid feeling that I might lose something if I don’t keep it. I’m sure I can either find it again on the internet somewhere or come up with something else in my discoveries.

I’ve done data collecting where I scour a few of my favorite forums for the “secret” to the ultimate meaning of life. Of course the answer is “42.

But I think I’m becoming more comfortable with slowing down my data mining and just live life.
