This is one of the “Tiny tips” series.
The purpose is to share little pieces of helpful practices and tricks that will make your work better and more pleasant.
Take a look at the other tyny tips like: Automate your environment.
Upgrade your working environment by surrounding yourself with easily accessible helpers.
Print out some useful (for you) content that can be used as a quick reference.
Of course, you can store all of those cheat sheets in electronic format somewhere on your hard drive (or URL bookmarks).
However, I would advise you to have some on paper.
That way you will not search for the file and disturb your inertion.
The physical version has a psychological aspect as well. You know that a piece of particular knowledge is exactly somewhere in the space around you and you can have a look at it for a second. So you are going to make references to those “extensions of your brain” in an absolutely natural and even semi-unconscious way.
