He mentioned having project-specific notes instead of just a general vault with highly linked notes. Also referred to the Note-taking should be an instrument, not an end in itself article.

His adjustments for sustainable note-taking:

  • No daily quotes for notes
  • Wait to take notes (let the best ideas “survive” the wait)
  • Stop taking notes on everything
  • Project-based vaults (I use project-based MOCs and folders for this)
