  • Those who do not react flexibly to the demands of the situation become slaves to their stubbornness.

    This post is a good example of why it is important to go deeper and understand the principles behind the methods we imitate (shuhari). That flexibility is difficult to imitate. That flexibility is being able to create on-demand the method that is needed for each situation.

    Thank you for this field report :-)

  • I wouldn't say that you imitate the flexibility, but you add this style of processing to your toolbox when you encounter a fitting book that you want to process.

    It is rather a problem-driven process: You need a proper resistance to have a good reason to build your Zettelkasten muscle. :)

    Yes, I agree that the idea is to have this flexible processing style in our toolbox.

    However, in my previous comment, I was thinking about the case where you don't have flexible tools, and nobody tells you that it is good to have flexibility in your tools. In this case, one way to realize that you need flexibility is to go deeper and master your tools. That is why I said that this flexibility cannot be imitated.

    (This was my case before reading this post: I was always applying the Barbell method without flexibility :s)

    Thanks again for writing this post :-)
