Chose what to make zettles on - make it less time consuming
I am not working in academia. I have a master in human geography (social science focus). I am reading a lot of modern and classic philosophy. I have been zettling for a year or two.
I find myself spending a lot of time typing notes into my ZK... too much time. I am not quite sure that this is the best way to do things, so want to hear how you go about this.
How I read:
When I read it is not by my computer. I have slip of paper in my book, and note page number and thought or quote whenever I find something interesting that gives a new perspective.
How I zettle:
When I am finished with the book I sit down and type my notes into my ZK. When typed, I split them into small notes, relate/link and expand thoughts.
Maybe one of my problems is that I don't read for writing anything or with any specific project in mind. So I find lots of different bits in the text interesting and produce many notes.
Maybe I am not selective enough? but how to be more selective without loosing valuable content.
I feel that typing takes too long time and are not productive but I don't really see how to get around it. Any one had a similar thoughts? how do you deal with it?
