I’m curious to hear your thoughts. For me, I don’t know if obsidian has made me smarter, but it’s definitely made life easier, since I can write stuff without worrying about the files being lost. It’s much better than google docs. The search function helps to find older files as well.
If being able to recall knowledge faster and more accurately = smarter, then yes.
Using LYTKit and thinking about how to apply that has taught me new ways of thinking, so also yes.
I think it depends on your workflow. Obsidian is a note-taking app.
so, it depends on what you do with your note.
Do you really revisit them, do you create something (output) with it.
It’s similar to taking photos so that we do not forget the moment, but we actually do not really revisit the photos anyway.
