Relating to my PKM and methods: I've built the habit of writing for 30 minutes or 1'000 words per day. I've started on the 24 of September 2019. I've discovered that writing is immensely beneficial. But it is not enough.

Keep reading: a thread follows.
This is where the Building a Second Brain and the Zettelkasten methods came into play.
I am trying to evolve my journaling habit to a reflective and connectivity level.
Dumping thoughts is not enough. I need to build a network of thoughts on top of which I can be creative, innovative and I can deeply strengthen my knowledge.
This requires great changes in my workflow.
Reading is not enough, note taking is not enough, writing is not enough.
If I want to grow my knowledge ecology I need to understand carefully what I observe, read, listen, watch; rephrasing in my own words, writing it down in my PKM system and searching for any connection with my pre-existing knowledge.
This is adding a lot of work to what I was already doing. It's harder to do. Requires more focus and concentration. It's harder to build as a habit because within the same dedicated time I now can do less, much less reading.
So I need to develop "resonance" strategies to drive my attention. I should focus only on those learning activities bringing the highest value to my learning path.
Everything looks great, in theory, but doing it is a real challenge.
In terms of tools I am really sick of losing my data to big corporations locking me down with proprietary technologies. This is happening since the day of my Commodore Vic 20 in 1982. I am done with that.
I want my data to be device-agnostic, free to be used anywhere, anytime with any tool. That is why, while I am keeping an eye on @NotionHQ (Notion), @Evernote, @RoamResearch and the many seeing birth as fungi,
I want to focus on my content, my files without worrying about the tool.
Obsidian, @obsdmd is just one of the many Note Management Systems managing pure MarkDown/Text files without a centralized DB or a proprietary format.
This has limitations, of course, no built-in cloud syncing (they're working on that) and a young and not mature set of features. But I feel free! Maybe for the first time.
No Microsoft Office, no Google Docs, no proprietary tools to read my thoughts! Notepad would do or any pure text editor would allow me to access my Second Brain.
This is what pertains to personal knowledge management for the internal workflow of reading, writing, thinking.
When we talk about collaboration or publishing we need to look at different needs, constraints and tools. In my case I am looking to refine my workflow in which I exploit in the best way my private PKM system to create interesting ideas, connections and speculations.
Then I would extract those notes to create a draft and, at this stage, I am out of the PKMS, I am inside the realm of Microsoft Word or Google Doc. Again, but within a different context and with a different purpose.
Thanks to @technoshaman George Por for the prompt to think and write about my Personal Knowledge Management workflow.
What did I publish so far with this evolving workflow?
