What makes a good IDEA?

Atomic: Is the idea the smallest it can be? If you resonated to multiple items maybe you could capture them separately.

Self-contained: The nugget should be valuable on its own. You should get most of the value by looking at it. This means short summarised notes work better than lengthy never-ending paragraphs.

Re-usable: The insight needs to allow for methods of interaction. It should be classified in a manner that you recognise, it should point back to the source etc.
