How do you handle the mixture of a literature note and a permanent note
I was writing some Zettel’s this evening, for the first time in a while, and stumbled across an issue.
Curious to see how others handle this scenario.
I was making literature notes, and whilst making them, on the same Zettel, I found myself explaining the concept back to myself in different words. All very well and good, but ideas that fit into the literature note to help explain the concept, started coming out on screen.
As these were my ideas from the original content, I was struggling to decide if they were literature notes and therefore belonged in the literature slip box, or permanent notes, and therefore belonged in the “main” slip box.
This must happen to others. Do you end up breaking the concept down further until you can separate the concept from the idea? So keep working to smaller atomic notes? I’m not sure I could do this and still keep the original zettel making sense, which goes against the principle of atomicity in my view...
Maybe I need to leave the card alone for a day or two, then revisit?
