Bigger Ideas

Platform agnostic ideas that may help your PKM process. They may feature a software, but I think they apply to more than a single platform.

Jeffery gave us a tour of his “chaotic” PKM system. I like his note, that it doesn’t have to be all clean. All our systems are really messy.

Jeff Perry’s note system for 3 articles a week.

Scott on his “secret weapon” for notes.

Josh shared his system to reduce friction in his Zettelkasten workflows. I’m sure we’ve all found our systems can get out of control.

Justin showcased his PKM system via the Linking Your Thinking channel.

Dan is going to write a guide on “Reading, Thinking, Writing” and is contemplating using 3×5 cards to get the project going.

untools is a list of tools to help you think better. Not a list of software tools, but frameworks for ways of thinking.

I know many people run themselves in circles looking for the perfect note-taking application.
