I still had some questions about how I was going to use Obsidian. I knew vaults were not the answer for me, having read a post on here regarding that not being the way the brain works and also being conscious of ‘siloing’ information and losing the power of connectivity.
But it wasn’t until I really engaged with and started to fully understand - not there yet - MOCs and their usefulness that I realised how powerful obsidian is as a tool, and how it can help me.
For example, if I use a piece of hardware that has a method of being set up that is slightly pedantic, I can create a note on it so that if I have to revisit it in 5 years to setup again, there it is. But it’s only through the MOC - in this case TECHNOLOGY INSTRUCTIONS MOC - that I have built a connection in my brain and know that this is what Obsidian is, in part, used for.
And of course, I have a MOC of MOCS which can help. And I also make all MOCS capitalised in their note heading to make them easy to discern at a glance. Powerful stuff!
