I decided to jump into this fancy note taking system

Lately I’ve been reading and watching a lot about this new note taking system called Zettelkasten. I’m amazed that just now it is becoming so popular given the fact that it has been created since (fecha). I guess the power of influencers is stronger than I thought. But i will not be talking about the method per se of how it works (i’ll leave it for another post), i’ll be talking about why I decided to jump on it

I want to take my readings to the next level

I love to read and (a lo largo de toda mi vida) I’ve read a lot of books about a great variety of topics. To be honest I barely remember things about them. I know that when I read a book, some ideas resonate, of course I’ve been learning, but I think I could achieve the next level. Documenting all my reads and thoughts at that time seems powerful.

Having a record of my thoughts

Imagine having a record of what, when and why you thought something. That is such a powerful tool because you could measure your progress, your evolution, your growth! I know, I know, many of you will tell me — Thats what journaling is for — and yes, it is! I’ve been journaling for a few years now but the idea of linking my thoughts is something I’m interested in.

Develop some self discipline

Keeping a system like this requires discipline, time and work. The note won’t be written by itself and I think it’s a great way, along with all the other habits I’m developing, to practice self discipline and achievement!

I’m just at the beginning of my path with Zettelkasten and I know I have a lot of things to learn yet. I’m motivated and interested in this new system so definitely I’ll keep you posted about my progress! The idea is to create this now mentioned second brain.

Thanks for reading! 👽
