It’s wonderful how easy it is now to quickly send information and links to the Inbox. But as a consequence, there is the challenge of working through the Inbox pile and moving items to their appropriate place. When I place a term in the move dialogue, I often get a bewildering number of potential destinations. all featuring the same word.
I’ve developed a workaround by nominating key items as “placeholders” which function as default locations for relevant information in that area. I do this by prefixing the “=” symbol to the item. Then I type a “=” into the move dialogue to bring up the available placeholders.
For me, placeholders are a subsidiary of bookmarks and documents. They are useful primarily for storing information, but I do also have “= Today” and “= Tomorrow” placeholders for quickly categorising actions for my workbench.
