Zettelkasten Philosophy

  1. Atomicity: One idea per note.
  2. Autonomy: Self-contained - you can read notes on their own.
  3. Always tag and link
  4. Spend time connecting notes and building navigation, for example by writing TOC’s (table of contents).
  5. Use your own words.
  6. Keep references.
  7. Don’t worry about structure (develops organically).
  8. Keep files up to date (use git to version them).
  9. Add notes without fear: you can’t have too much notes.
