Lately I’ve been pouring time into Roam, finding ways to improve my long-term memory, and reading about taking notes, all in service of getting better at synthesizing new ideas.
Central to all of these is the Zettelkasten method of note-taking, a fancy-sounding German word for “note box.”
In addition to Sönke Ahrens’s excellent book on the topic, this post offers a deeper look into the mechanics of the system.
