The Problem With Note Taking

The Problem With Note Taking

The issue I have seen is that over the years I have all of these notes that have served a single purpose, but now they sit on a shelf never to see the light of day again. What if there was a method that not only saved them for easy access, but also allowed you to quickly reference them and even build on them in a separate thought,

This is how bsidian works.

Bi-directional Linking

Bi-directional Linking

This is a simple concept where you link two ideas that share a common point.

Say you are consolidating a lit of tasks at work and you need updates or have questions regarding certain tasks.

This becomes useful when you begin closing out tasks, but still want quick access to them later for reference.

Where To Start?

Where To Start?

One popular option for how to use Obsidian is based on the "Zettelkasten" method or note box in German.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
