How do you approach "directional" Zettelkasten work?
I'm currently unsatisfied with my approach for no other reason than the lack of confidence, but here it is for reference:
- Make a structure note for the project inside my "outlines" overview note
- Then gather a bunch of notes, starting from the related structure notes I have
- Brainstorm a bunch of questions
- Brainstorm/search for a bunch of resources that may answer these questions
- Process these sources
Problem: For small projects like articles and short lessons for my own forum, I find it extremely time-consuming. (Or, am I walking down the path of short-term thinking here?)
My (pseudo) solution: I've started writing an outline and fleshing them with my own thoughts, but I find them hard to "zettelize" afterward -- rendering my time "low leverage". (wait -- is note-ify a better term? lol)
I'm curious about your approaches, but any critique to my process is 100% welcome!
EDIT: I also do "indirectional work" but since I have my own publishing schedule, I have to compromise (a bit) with more "directional" work. I think it's a spectrum, btw.
