    Hello,

    I was pointed your way as you are the creator of Vizel.

    I am a Windows user and new to python. I would love if you could help me run the program so I can start generating a graph.

    There is very little documentation on how to use the program. I have Python loaded and Vizel and Graphviz all installed. I just cannot run any of the commands in the documentation.

    Thanks

    Hello A_M...

    Thanks for your input.

    How do you link notes?

    =======

    I intend to create an almanac / wiki of the town I live in.

    I foresee having many lists with 3 to 20 items per list ...I would then detail (have a note for ) each item in each list. Of course, many entries would not be in a list

    For instance, I hope to have a list of the Mills that once operated in the town, and then have a note for each entry in the MIlls list ... For now, I'll call them Mill A, Mill B, Mill C, etc. Is this workable?

    Other list titles / headers would be: Mill-Owners, Waterways, Streets, Factories, Firsts, Schools, Churches, Railways, Railway Stations, Streets, Mayors, Literary Figures, Athletes, Philanthropists, Leading Figures, etc., etc.

    I intend to have one or more sources per note ... Is one allowed to have multiple sources per note, or is that frowned on by the Z-Gods?

    I am very slow on the tech-uptake, so please keep things simple.

    John

    Hey Steve - I liked your post on "future self" but I believe it was shortened for the purpose of discussion in the forum. Would you be willing to share the whole zettel with me? It sounded very interesting (as was the image, of course). Getting close to 70, I am already living the discussion point.

  • Hello there! I'm pretty new to this method and if someone could clear what are source notes, literature notes, permanent notes, atomic and evergreen notes, it would be really helpful.
    I also wanted to share my workflow with you all and any constructive criticism is absolutely welcome!
    @Will @sfast @improveism

    I've just started to use it. I've decided to have one place to have source notes and one with my Zettels. Source notes, for e.g, would contain parts of an article which resonated with me or like a book summary (some long content and quotes).
    Zettels, would be like my thoughts on it and what I understand from it. My Zettels would be heavily linked with related thoughts.

    I'm using Notion for source notes because I like the database view and Obsidian for my Zettels.
    Here's a snapshot of one of my Zettel:

    (P.S: I'm pretty new so that's the reason it looks a little incomplete :P)

    Hope all is well. I am also a Charlie Munger fan and love his idea of a mental latticework. I am sure you are aware of Farnam Street and Shane Parish? Shane wrote two excellent books on mental models. I am curious to your approach on learning the mental models. They are so fascinating though there are so many that how do you remember which to use in which situation? How are you approaching remembering and applying them? Thank you.

      Sorry for the delay in response! It’s been a busy time, and I only just saw this!

      Yes, actually I have both books (on kindle unfortunately as I can’t seem to source the hardbacks for love nor money), and I’m working my way through them, a model a week. I also cross reference against the article on the fs.blog website too, just to try and glean a little more context (along with Wikipedia).

      I have a colleague who is also a Shane Parrish fan, so we have a regular 30 mins catch up on a Friday morning, that we talk about our understanding of “this weeks” model, discuss, and formulate our summaries from that.
      This helps clear up misunderstanding (which does happen) and triggers other conversation tangents (book recommendations, etc - we have a similar taste and reading habit).

      With regards to application:
      Because I’m now working from home full time, and I have a physical ZK sitting right next to me, I have my 6x4 note cards opened to the mental models/cognitive biases section, and try to flick through them when I’m in the middle of decision making, meetings (cognitive biases are useful here), etc.

      The next book on my to read list after I’m done with the mental model ones, is the laws of human nature by Robert Greene, to start filling out the cognitive bias section a little more, along with some human nature notes. I actually have peoples names written on the back of some of these cognitive biases note cards, of people I know who are prone to this type of thinking, along with the bias they are known for on their 1:1 page in my note book. Same will likely happen with the human nature book too.

      Hope this helps!
