Hello. I just recently started creating my own PKM, using Zettelkasten, Evergreen Notes, and LYT, so there’s still a lot I don’t understand. Can I ask you a few questions, please?
- Do I always have to write notes in my own words? It’s just that I often write down some useful recommendations, terms, rules and tips from the Internet and everything is set out there very briefly and clearly, and I can’t even think of how to write it in another way (((
- I don’t understand what to do if I study information on the same topic from different sources. Let’s say I read about healthy eating and look at several different sites on this topic. Each of them has its own “definitions of healthy eating”, but they may differ slightly from each other, and sometimes even contradict each other. What should I do in this case? Should I write down each definition in my own words in a separate note or create one for everyone, where to combine them into one thought? And in this case, how can I create a link to the source, if it is not one?
- How would you advise to write a note if it contains several points and each of them has an explanation?
- Point 1
- Point 2
- Point 3
Should I create a separate note for each point and write a description in it (to make the system more atomic), or just make each point a drop-down title and write this description in it? What would you do?
