I find that as I listen to the Manager Tools podcasts, as well as all of the reading that I do (I subscribe to Harvard Business Review and Fortune, and am always reading books like "Winning", "The Trusted Advisor", etc), I'm constantly picking up useful bits of information that I want to add to my toolbox.
The problem is that it's data overload. When you read something useful in a book or magazine, or hear it in a podcast, how do you capture that information so that you can refer back to it when you need it? When I read books, I usually mark them up with a highlighter, which works pretty well. But as for magazines and podcasts, I haven't found a great way to capture all of the miscellaneous bits that I want to be able to refer back to.
Anyone have any tricks that work for them?
