Wow, thread still going strong...
OK, well I'm back to continue with this experiment. Nearly lost my job due to Covid, but I got a new client and am ok for a little bit.
I still haven't been able to stick to this method, and I still want to try as I am very envious of the output productivity I am expecting. Here are my personal updates. I will go back through this thread to see what has developed with you guys also.I'm thinking of going primitive, with discursion into zettelkasten
I like this visual, it is helpful.
Going off that, this is how I see things going for me:
Inbox, somewhere to dump all incoming things. I definitely will use a folder for an inbox.
Archive, once a thought/nugget is carefully processed and whittled down, it goes permanently here. This is the actual zettel, so I will also have this: a container where all the final stuff go into.
Reference database, I don't think I need this. This part is handled better with all my other software, like the ones that can search, and just have all the media organized somewhere else. I think I’ll avoid this. I use so many things to store/index files, search files, etc. So I don't want or need to bring in massive volumes of stuff. That will be done with more powerful software, and several of them at that. I'll skip this.
Output, this is where I’ll put everything together for the final output. I may not need this either, or only partially, as I think the final output will also be done using several other software. I think instead of real output, I may use an output staging area, where i bring in all the archive links. But from there, I will take it to the other final form software like MS Word, Indesign, Final Draft, etc. I don't need to do this in the zettel.
That's where I'm at.
