My high school physics teacher often told me to "make the material your own" by
rewriting it, rather than copying it directly. I wasn't very good at physics,
but I still remember the things that I took the time to make personal.
Step 3 is about making the information my own.
It's worth spending the time to really think about what was highlighted - and
why - so that the information is absorbed. Without this step I'm just hording
other people's words without integrating it into my own knowledge.
I'll then split my rewritten note - sometimes with the quoted highlight - into a
separate note. I link to this new note from the original one, and then delete
the saved link from Pocket.
