Note to self: Getting the most out of RSS

It feels like the 19th time is a charm as I once again dive into the world of using RSS feeds to stay on top of news, current events, etc...

I've distilled the reasons I've abandoned news feeds in the past below with the hope that I don't totally burn out this time.

  1. It’s okay to miss things. Don’t be a completionist, no one productive gets through all their feeds either.
  2. If you feel behind, Mark All As Read and start fresh. It’s allowed.
  3. Anything truly important will last multiple news cycles. You’ll see it eventually.
  4. Don't keep putting off reading something you’ve saved for later. Just delete it.
