As someone who used and tried way too many tools… you could also rethink whats your usecase and needs, and if obsidian would be the best for it. For example i used evernote a lot some years back, and if my needs were the same today i would still be mainly using it (i still use it for captures tough). Even digging deeper and deeper with obsidian i still use Notion a lot, as Notion gives me structure and some practical tools that obsidian lacks.
From my perspective Obsidian, roam and similares are best for whoever wants to connect many ideas, studies in different fields where overlap happens (or a broad and complex one) or who like to process their insights on everything (articles, books, etc). Even to whom is more focused on introspective tought this sort of linking and flow is amazing… but in no way the only way to do it.
So for example, if theres little to no overlap in your interests, if you mostly save content (instead of comparing and writing a lot yourself) then Notion or even evernote could be more practical. Both allow hyperlinking (Notion now have backlinking as well).
Im only saying that because, first theres no perfect tool (and none that fits every need), and second because Obsidian lacks a lot in terms of structure (Roam even more); They follow a specific filosophy of making links above everything, wich is great but demands upkeeping, some planing… depending on what you want from it quite a bit of work before things get smooth.
I think quite a lot of people get lost in what the tool can do (and trying to make it do more) and lose some perspective in the process. For instance, theres some amazing articles and videos on how to make good moc (map of contents- like indexes) in obsidian, and theres many great uses for then- but just the time it takes to figure it out, and the time it takes to make and upkeep then… it makes sense for some people and uses, but for most they would do good with a simple tree-structured index or just tags and theyre just taking the longer harder way.
My advice is to try different tools, really try, but dont invest too much in each (otherwise you run the risk of investment bias- the more content/work something takes the harder it is for someone to give up on it, even when they would benefit from doing so). That btw happened to me and evernote, when i insisted on using evernote for way more then it was good for and that kept me away from trying different things.
For example i was divided between notion and obsidian… so i kept using both a bit, without caring much about ‘‘creating the perfect system’’ (too early to project that); That made me realize what i liked and disliked in each, what worked best for me…
In my case obsidian is my drafts and freeflowing toughts tool. What some experts call evergreen notes or upper-level ideas is the kind of stuff i do outside of obsidian, some years ago in tiddlywiki, now i do that in Notion. For me obsidian has been useful as a reference, where i clash different snippets, toughts and references against one another without caring much about order; Then when i go plan something or write something i do it in a structured way elsewhere with obsidian one alt+tab away.
PS: i also believe these tools mesh well or worse with people depending on their personality; For example at school i remenber being envy of who had good organization and notebooks, everything at their place… that sort of person id think would do better at Notion- they would have the patience of organizing it (and linking things, it takes longer there). For me that is harder, i like to type as fast as i think, and making links in Obsidian is quicker so that is what drives me to it (despite the markdown, god i hate markdown)
