📝Use tags sparingly in Zettelkasten

Zettelkasten is about developing ideas, not collecting them

Assign tags sparingly. Do not think as an archivist—general tags are too broad to be useful. (Use index cards (Structure Zettel) to provide overview of the topics instead.)

Think “In what context I want to stumble on this note again?” Think where it can be useful, not what it describes. Always think in terms of your current project.
