Time Blocking and the Zettelkasten Method
Hello to everyone
I am very fond of the time blocking technique supported by Cal Newport according to which you give a task on each hour of working day. It allows me to do a lot of work and stop at 5 pm so as to focus on other aspects of my life.
The problem is that I have abandoned Zettelkasten altogether. I am sometimes so absorbed to my work up to 5 pm, that although I take some fleeting notes, I find myself not inserting them to the Zettelkasten at all. I tried scheduling a time block called Zettelkasten but I almost always ignore it since I find myself in this flow state.
I wanted to know if my approach to Zettelkasten is wrong. Should I use it as a constant tool by my side as I progress on a task ? In this case, there is no use for having a Zettelkasten block since every block includes working with your Zettelkasten. I am relatively inexperienced with this method. Although I know it for more than a year, every time I try to follow it, I find myself abandoning it.
