What are your zettelkasting plans for 7 August - 13 August 2022?

edited August 2022 in Your Current Projects

Please tell the community what you've been working on and share your plans for your zettelkasting this week.

This past week found me doing:

  • On Friday, my ZK surpassed 700k words, and by the end of the month, it may surpass 3k zettel. I'm slowly developing a sense of progress.

        11801 Total link count
        2905 Total zettel count
  • I gave up on the "Full Screen" workflow. I couldn't get it working with my Keyboard Maestro macros. I was having no fun.
  • Discovered a minor bug in my favorite advanced search querying macro.

My current plans for this coming week:

  • I will work all out on a minor bug in my favorite advanced search querying macro. It likely will require some more Regular Expression pixy-dust.
  • Reading - The Narrow Road To The Deep North by Matsuo Basho - Travel Journal
  • Reading - The Book Of Form And Emptiness by Ruth Ozeki - Fiction

Here are a few of the titles of zettel I've been working on last week.

These, along with the migration of 55 #code-snippets, make last week a ZK-focused week. Looking back, it feels like I only spent maybe two open and enjoyably stimulating hours per day working in my ZK. By working, I mean bathing in mind-weather and writing.

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.


  • keep trying to use the "incremental writing" concept I discovered last week.
    Integration in gardening and Spaced Repetition routines.
    Should not become an additional construction site, just a tool.

    Now I’m reading A concise history of Germany by Mary Fulbrook and take some notes.

    *edit two typos and include the notes.
