Building a Second Brain

Building A Second Brain is a methodology for saving and systematically reminding us of the ideas, inspirations, insights, and connections we've gained through our experience.


  1. Curate the content you want to consume
  2. Keep the notes on the content inside the Project folder (PARA System)
  3. Keep only what "resonates" with you. This is generally what you care about, wonder about, or find inherently intriguing.


Distilling your notes into actionable, bite-sized summaries. Think Zettelkasten

  1. Write notes about the content in a way that the future you can understand(define terms, include sources)
  2. Use Progressive Summarization
  3. Organize your notes bit by bit over time.


  1. Create using the notes
  2. Make small, reusable units of work.
  3. Share often, share online.
