P.A.R.A. Part 2 — Just-In-Time Organization

Resurfacing Tiago’s in-depth P.A.R.A series

Hi Praxis subscribers!

This week, we’re resurfacing the second in Tiago Forte’s series on P.A.R.A, the organization system he and thousands of others use to run their digital lives. 

In this post, Tiago dives deeper into the distinctions between the P.A.R.A. categories and explains the concept of just-in-time organization — which optimizes for usability rather than mythical standards of perfection. 

If you missed last week’s post, which explains what P.A.R.A. stands for and why it dramatically simplifies the process of organizing information, check it out here.
