I try not to have any (OK, many) obsessions; however, one is my consumption for information. Because of this I have to strictly monitor myself from deviating from my present task. I am sometimes easily distracted.
To help me remember about “something I found interesting“, I have a nice little custom link button labeled “Send” that I use in my Internet Explorer browser to quickly send myself an email. The email contains a subject and the link to the website in the body. Yes, you can do this by clicking, File > Send > Link by E-Mail, but this is to many clicks for me. Yes, I am impatient and have to work on this also.
This works with one click – much better. Your Links toolbar needs to be turned on to easily access the buttons in IE. I have my located immediately after the Address bar as shown here.
The only thing you need to customize is the YOUR-EMAIL@HERE.COM portion. Here is a sample of the properties dialog.
To create a link button you can drag the “e“ icon in the address bar to the Link toolbar. To get the properties, right-mouse-click on a link you want to edit. Here is a sample of the properties dialog.
Warning: For me these emails are subtle “tasks” to learn more. Your inbox may quickly fill up. :)
