One of the strengths of Obsidian is that it can be thought of as a toolkit for building machines for thinking. But this strength can be a challenge when you are first getting started. Without an inherent structure, it can be difficult to know where to begin.
My advice to anyone just getting started is always going to be this: Just start making notes, make links and tags liberally, and see what structure emerges to suit the way you think (feel free to disagree with me, but please do so over at Knowledge Management ).
That said, it’s often useful to see examples of how other people have set up their notes. This thread is for that.
This is a Vault that I’ve made collecting some examples by @cotemaxime, @nickmilo, and myself. It contains @nickmilo’s IMF system, @cotemaxime’s implementation of PARA, and some notes from myself about writing fiction and documentation in Obsidian, submissions tracking, and my own sythesis of PARA and IMF.

Please comment below with links to example setups you would like to share. I’d prefer that this thread be mostly about examples and not descriptions of systems, but if you need to toss in a link to an explainer for context that’s fine.
