We consume a lot, but we fail to use it. The brain is for having ideas, we need something else to store them. We need a Second Brain.
A second brain is built in three steps:
- Remember: curate your choices on what you want to remember. Not every article your read or video you watch has to end up in your second brain. Only add things that speak to you.
- Connect: read about a topic, summarize it into a new note and connect it to existing notes.
- Create: your second brain can be the basis for writing an article or creating a video. Also beginners can create, there's always someone who will benefit from your creation. It's always Creation over consumption.
