From collector to creator

Many note-takers hoard content because it gives them an illusion of knowledge. The best way to truly understand anything is to use the generation effect: to produce your own content, in your own words, and to share it with the world to create a feedback loop.

  • Collect. Note-taking, raw snippets, Kindle highlights + personal commentary.
  • Connect. Link to previous notes. Do not keep orphan notes.
  • Create. Write original article.
