§ Zettelkasten is about developing ideas, not collecting them

Do not turn slip-box into archive of notes, or worse—a graveyard of thought.

Things to ask when you add a new note:

  • how it supports or contradicts your other notes?
  • what do you think about it?
  • what questions are triggered by it?
  • can you combine it with other notes to generate something new?
