Today we’re going to look at a lesson from my Obsidian course where I show you some of the workflows I use to make connections with notes. You can get all the lessons by becoming a member or by purchasing the course below.
Today we’re going to look at fleshing out a big research project I’ve been toying with for a few years. We’ll look at some Obsidian plugins, how I search DEVONthink for more content I may have captured at different times and Shortform to evaluate resources that may fit with the project. Shortform is a sponsor […]
Getting your notes into Obsidian can be a bit of a chore. I find adding a book to my notes as I’m reading a book particularly time consuming, and it breaks me out of the reading workflow. This is where Quick Add can help automate some of the process of adding specific types of notes. […]

I know I’ve said before that you shouldn’t use your PKM system as a task manager, but we’re still going to talk about using some of the task management tools available in Obsidian because they do feel like they make sense in my workflow lately. Specifically, is content to manage and someday maybe content I […]
