Permanent notes

Date created: 2021-08-15

It’s the final and permanent form of notes in the Zettelkasten system. Niklas Luhmann used index cards so the space is very limited. Another word often used is Evergreen Notes for example by Andy Matuschak.

Some principles:

  • One single idea per note
  • Small and many over large and few notes
  • Should be easy to understand in isolation (e.g., ten years from now when I don’t have the context)
