Supporting Notes

Reflection to PARA

  • I like the ATLAS and Calendar entry points. Although:
    • ATLAS is currently covered by META folders
    • Calendar is currently covered by Journal folders but I like the sub-categories for it (like Daily, Plan, Reviw…) .. can make a great folder insights projects
  • I need to start using MOCs more to gain an overview and link things more together. The MOCs then build the central entry points to cross connect information.
  • Extra - is covered by Resources or Meta (and sub folders connected) …here I still need to further optimize and create clarity.
  • SPACES are covered by projects … and currently work better for me
