Hello synthesizers! Today I would like to ask all of you (and you, @Andrew Kirby, specifically), which software would you choose and why if you were just starting out to build your personal knowledge management system? My perspective is coming from the concept of the 2nd brain from Tiago Forte where you have a system to store information/knowledge, make the connections between that stored information/knowledge and then use that create. Whether you create for yourself or in order to share value with others is an afterthought. I'm personally interested in using a system like that in order to get as deep as I can on what I learn and be able to create wisdom that will bring value for others by helping them solve their problems. I want the wisdom I create to be problem solving and actionable. PS: Please try to put aside the fact that you maybe have been using Evernote for 10 years and you don't want to switch or something like that. Please recommend me what would you use if you were just starting out now from scratch.
Two weeks ago some members of the community started a weekly Zoom call to connect with each other, hold each other accountable, and solve each other's problems. The main goal is to create one piece of content per week, for 6 weeks. To build the habit of creating, and grow your audience. You can see a recording of the first call here. For the halfway mark of the challenge we're switching things up, and doing a 'hot seat' style call, inspired by Think and Grow Rich. Here's how the call will work: A member of the call will be randomly chosen by @Wiktor Romanowicz. The chosen member will describe: 1. Their current situation around synthesizing 2. Their desired situation around synthesizing 3. Any problems that are holding them back from reaching their desired situation. This should take less then 3 minutes, so if you tend to ramble, it could be a good idea to come to the call prepared with a rough idea of what you're going to say. Then the rest of the members of the call will try their best to help the chosen member solve their problem! People can unmute themselves, offer advice, recall times they were in similar situations and what they did, provide content recommendations etc. Ideally responses are short and concise, mindful of everyone's time. Then after roughly 10 minutes, another hotseat member is randomly chosen. I've personally paid a looooooot of money to attend similar mastermind calls, and have received a tonne of value from it (what's more valuable than a group of intelligent people all working on solving your most pressing problems?). The call will go on for around 75 minutes. And even if you're not chosen, chances are people are going through similar problems to you, so it'll still be valuable. Plus teaching is the best way to learn. I will not be attending, but @Wiktor Romanowicz does a great job of hosting.
