When to create zettels?
I have been using the zettelkasten system since this time in 2019. I started after reading How to Take Smart Notes and started using ZKN3, however quickly ran into some resistance and found this wonderful site and The Archive. Over 3000 notes later I am seeing the benefits of linked ideas and being able to find ideas which I was alway going ... “I’ve read this somewhere, but cannot remember where”.
I read extensively, often on the go during the day. Often it will be a quick read of a journal article while trying to answer a question which has come up in the run of my work which is immediately put into action. Also this is not immediately entered into my zettelkasten. Thus I have highlighted articles and books collected in my article collector of choice, Readcube Papers.
With regards to breaking this problem with workflow, do people find it easier to make a quick reference in the zettalkasten as a note at the time that they read the information or prefer to sit down and process the work in detail when you have the time?
