RECORD- / INFORMATION-KEEPING is something I am somewhat obsessed with. I have tried all sorts of methods for wrangling my thoughts, ideas, to-do items, appointments, journal entries, and everything else you can think of. In the process, I’ve had some interesting revelations—and found some methods that work really, really well for me.
This is a new section, so I don't have many articles or pages about it yet:
- The Art of Personal Indexing: The Complete Guide to Indexing Your Paper Notes, some 3500 words on how to do exactly what it sounds like. I may convert this into a series of pages instead of a really long blog post in the future, and I plan to update it as I learn more about the topic.
- YYYY-MM-DD: The Best Way to Write Dates, why familiar systems of writing dates are inadequate for computer and record-keeping use, and how to do it right.
- The blog category won't miss any future posts even if I do.
