Am I polluting my Zettelkasten?
At present, I am using multiple folders for different purposes - all searchable within my Zettelkasten software (Obsidian currently, but also have used The Archive). Folders include:
- Zettelkasten (my ‘pure’ folder for processed notes)
- Daily Notes (ramblings from the day, todo items, journals, random notes from articles read)
- Reference Items
- Book notes (from Kindle Highlights)
- Incubator (where partially formed Zettels go for further thought before becoming ‘real’ Zettels)
I also kind of use this system as a todo list. Often my daily notes contain morning pages or other random thoughts that come up. Sometimes there is a todo item that I’ll mark to be able to search for later.
When building and linking a Zettel, I like to have a searchable archive of quotes, highlights, etc. from the non-Zettelkasten folder; however, I’m concerned this is ‘polluting’ my system.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Should I keep everything separate or do you think it’s ok (even helpful) to have in one place?
