# Inbound

An experiment in recording what I’m reading, watching, listening to. I’m thinking this might help me be just a bit more selective about what I spend time with. Maybe I can also spot patterns, or extend this to include brief remarks or at least star the best stuff, or something.

Roughly: if I spent more than 5 minutes on it, I’m logging it here. Seems like a bit of a faff, but if it’s not worth this extra effort, should I really be giving it more than 5 minutes?

I wondered about also logging time spent on Twitter / Hacker News / etc here but it’s too much trouble, I’ll deal with that separately.

My recording has been rather patchy so far, mainly because it’s too hard to add items to this log from my phone. I may fix this soon. Reading back over the log today was kinda interesting. I do rather suspect that a regular “if I spend more than 5 minutes with this, I’ll have to log it” thought would push me to improve the average quality of what I consume. I want to find an easy way to link this log to my reading notes.
