[Zettel Feedback] Meta zettelkasting note review "The Power of the ZK Method"
This may be too fluffy for some "rational" types, but I loved working with this idea.
It is a note about making notes. I'm primarily interested in formatting suggestions and questions. I'm up for arguing any of the details of the content.
Bring on the comments. Lossen the bulls!

It helps me remember why they are essential, "deepen learning, and foster original thoughts and connections." The habit of review improves retention. Creating links makes a web of knowledge. "Your notes are finally something more than a messy pile of scraps." - Monk Morning Practice [] This is how I developed my thought system. It's the magic potion to turn yourself into a unique person. My Evernote is an abandoned graveyard of dusty, untouched notes. Take time to append personal reflections to each note. Consistency is a kryptonite for many people. * Links are where the magic happens. Scan for potential links inside indexes/hubs. After I find the right index for a note, I look for link candidates among the other notes in the same index. - Using notes to connect ideas [] The Zettelkasten forces me to think deeply about each note, reconsidering them together from a broader point of view during a review. - Inbox Review [] It amplifies the natural tendency to find patterns and connections between concepts. - Quality of relationships to ideas matter [] * Connecting ideas along varied and novel paths makes them more memorable. It is the meaning that causes the idea to stick in the memory. Connections lead to and are about different things. Look for long notes that I can outline into articles or blog posts. - Writing From An Outline [] ––––– ## References and Resources - The Power of the ZK Method - bear://x-callback-url/open-note?id=41217FC5-235C-4857-BFEA-687B094273ED-32163-0000878BD0E6A93F - [How I Organize My Thoughts With the Zettelkasten Method](https://betterhumans.pub/how-i-organize-my-thoughts-with-the-zettelkasten-method-eb8d0b64799c)
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.
