I am new to Obsidian and have done the initial setup to get started, thanks to many useful guides from the Obsidian community, especially the YouTube series by @nickmilo.
Now I would like to have some guidelines to build my PKM in Obsidian so that it will be useful and joyful to work with. In the past I used various tools (TiddlyWiki, SimpleNote, vim-notes), mainly to record things that I don’t want to forget. But over the time it’s getting messy and less useful, a common problem for many of us.
I understand that a PKM strategy is very personal, and there is no single best way for everyone. I am a software developer and system administrator. I use PKM mainly to keep track of things that I work on. The topics vary a lot, from a quick note about how I fixed some small problem on a server, to a long dive into some topic in software development. I have been using mainly tag + global text search to organize and navigate/search my notes. But I always feel it’s not right, I expect it to help me more.
So I’d like to ask for suggestion/ recommendation from the experienced. I am trying not to spend too much time/effort on over-optimizing my notes; instead I am trying to find the 20/80 sweet spot: try to focus on a few practices that are most efficient and start using them.
Thanks in advance for any hint.
