4) The Stapler Model You work on a number of small topics that turn into a series of conference papers  You figure out somehow how to tie it all together, create a chapter from each paper, and put a big staple through it 

5) Post-it now! Save sources, pages, for the reference list.  Found something interesting? Post-it now, so you don't forget. 
