New here! Starting up the Zettelkasten.
I am a german actuary in his early forties with a doctorate in (pure) mathematics.
I like to read and think about what I read. I want to learn the Zettelkasten Method to help me with that, to curate lines of thought in my (many) areas of interest, make new connections, and see what comes up over time. If something worthwhile does come up, I would also like to dabble a bit in non-fiction writing.
My start-up setting for the Zettelkasten:
- Fleeting Notes are handwritten (either in my notebook or blank slips of paper that double as bookmarks).
- Zotero as a reference system and storage for finalized proper literature notes.
- Obsidian as a Zettelkasten (but still using the 'Folgezettel'-system).
In addition, I mark the number of the permanent notes in my Zettelkasten each day, together with the hours I worked with the Zettelkaste Method (aiming for at least three).
Looking forward to learning from/with you!
