Getting overrun by permanent notes - please, send help.
Hello. This is my first post in the forum, so, first of all, hello.
Before I start throwing my questions at you guys, I'd like to clarify something: I know that each Zettelkasten system ends up being unique and that I should focus mainly on applying the principles, but I think my problem is precisely with the principles, since I'm not particularly sure if I'm utilizing permanent notes in the most optimal way.
I'm currently working on my master's in philosophy and, trying to organize all the concepts and sub-concepts that I have and how they link to one-another, I have created some sort of mess-monster - but I don't know if this is the mess-monster from which amazinig new connections will arise, or if it's just a mess.
For instance: do you turn concepts and their sub-concepts into permanent notes that you can check later? Or are permanent notes something that should be reserved for my ideas, and not for something that I've read, and I should store notes and concept-definitions in a different way? How do you do it?
Please, send help.
