What is the Zettelkasten Research Method?

my notes ( ? )

Zettelkasten allowed him to: build a huge web of knowledge, retrieve the right memory when needed, find meaningful connections among topics, and develop his ideas, arguments and discussions efficiently...

The first step ... taking literature notes as you read something ... what you don't want to forget ... be brief ... in your own words ...

second step ... bibliographical notes ... reference information on one side of a small index card and a brief note about the content on the other side... in the bibliographical box with the literature notes...

third step ... permanent notes. Go through each note ... thinking about how they relate to what you're learning, your interests, thinking or research... add new values to your existing ideas, arguments and discussions.... finding meaningful connections between what you just learned and what you already know... build a web of knowledge...

more information means more hooks we can use to connect the new information to... more cues ... to trigger the right memory....

find keywords ... to find connections among notes... ask yourself: In which circumstances will I want to stumble upon this note...?
