What is Zettelkasten?

Zettelkasten is a method in which you write down your thoughts in notes, tag and connect them over time. I really appreciated this method and I use it when I'm studying some topic. I wrote some notes here. If you want to know more about Zettelkasten, I recommend this post that tell us a story about Niklas Luhmann work and how Zettelkasten helped him to be very productive.

My notes usually have 4 main parts:

  • Notes: they're my notes about the topic.
  • Questions: they're questions I made while studying the topic to perform a metacognitive reading.
  • References: are references that I consulted to write the notes.
  • Backlinks: links to other notes that made a reference to the current note.
