The Zettelkasten method breaks down the thinking process into physical steps which can be acquired as habits.
Thinking – the ability to connect and understand things – becomes a physical routine.
These Here are the steps:
- Collecting and writing down ideas while I’m watching or reading something.
- Processing information by phrasing it in my own words, then adding the note to my Zettelkasten (one
thoughthought is one card).
- Optional linking and connecting with existing notes in the Zettelkasten to create a network of information.
This routine is very similar to GTD, which is also the thinking process broken down to physical steps and habits.
