Pocket is one of my absolute favorite tools.
When you find an article online that you love or one that you want to save for reading later, all you have to do is click the handy "Save to Pocket" button and Pocket automatically adds it to your account for safe keeping.
22 million users have saved more than 2 billion articles to the platform. In fact, it's where I save all of my favorite ideas for this newsletter, for example.
Check Pocket out here.

Congrats! You're already in motion by reading this newsletter ;) Now get out there and make something happen!
- Objects in motion tend to stay in motion
- It's not just about working hard, it's also about working on the right things
- Your productivity is a balance of opposing forces
Until next Friday, Thinkers.
