The Every-Person's Zettelkasten

"If creativity is a habit, then the best creativity is the result of good work habits. They are the nuts and bolts of dreaming." - Twyla Tharp, The Creative Habit

Want a quick and easy way to start using the Zettelkasten method in Notion? No complicated formula's or relations - just a template that gets out of the way and allows you think and write and let ideas bubble to the surface.

I created this template for myself as I was reading the book How To Take Smart Notes by Sonke Ahrens. The idea of the Zettelkasten is that it's a system to 'think in.' It shouldn't have to be a system you have to 'think about.'

So I designed a system that was easy to use and easy to create new ideas from.  The beauty of this template is that you can go from literature notes, to permanent notes, to content ideas - all without leaving your note.
