I`m Alex. Trying to optimize my knowledge acquisition workflow


I`m Alex. Trying to optimize my knowledge acquisition workflow. Using Obsidian and another software for those. Usually taking notes from videos.

    I'm with you when it comes to optimizing acquisition workflows. Life is short. So many good books, and there is the FOMO. The discussion in the thread How I refined my Youtube knowledge acquisition turned me on to a way to 'optimize my knowledge acquisition" that has nothing to do with YouTube or capturing ideas but focuses on idea relationships. Knowledge acquisition is not all, only some about optimization. Slow meandering, daydreaming, and play have a place in knowledge acquisition. The keystone step in knowledge growth is finding relationships between new ideas and established ideas is what I'm trying to "optimize."

    My zettelkasten is for my ideas, not the ideas of others. I will try to remember this. I must keep doing my best even though I'm a failure. My peak cognition is behind me. One day soon, I will read my last book, write my last note, eat my last meal, and kiss my sweetie for the last time.
