Digital Thinkers: My friend Kara's Obsidian setup is live!

Published about 1 year ago • 1 min read

Hey Reader!

Thanks for allowing me into your inbox twice this week. I think you're gonna love what our friend Kara Monroe is doing with Obsidian, Fantastical, and Day One.

Whether you use Tana, Obsidian, Roam, or another digital thinking tool, Kara's setup reinforces two things I've learned in 2023 about personal knowledge management and digital thinking systems:

  1. I need a single tool from which to add all your stuff.

One more thing about Kara's work: She's posting every day in June! Make sure you follow her on Medium and/or YouTube.

Eventually, I became the neighborhood record-holder, with a 100-yard ride on my rear bicycle wheel. That’s when all the work I'd put into wheelies got fun. Beating the competition. Until then, I put way too...

Hey Reader! “By popular demand” is such a schtick. Reminds me of outrageous claims and promises that are so silly they're funny. Remember the Old School Ronco TV commercial that promises “set it and forget it” cooking products? Lots of personal development books promise buying their product will change your life…and they can, if you actually work the processes. Because of you — on Twitter or via the previous newsletter edition from a couple of weeks ago — I get to say: “I’m hosting a workshop...

Hey Reader! Hope you’ve had a good week. This week I started doing a bit of digital maintenance that I hope makes for a much improved experience for you. I’m a little late with the newsletter I promised from last week, and I thank you for your patience. Last week you considered a question:What would you change about your life in the next 90 days? This edition newsletter is all about becoming that person through day-to-day actions, behaviors, and mindset. If you haven’t already, break down...
