Since the last year, I have begun to use obsidian.md as my notetaking software. I found a way to combine different aspects of notetaking in a workflow, at least for my notetaking style. They are
- Goal and project management
- Personal knowledge management (PKM)
I call it LMS (Life Management System), as it handles the most important parts of my life.
The main reference to build this workflow are:
- Progressive summarization from Forte Labs
- Zettelkasten from Niklas Luhmann
- Linking Your Thinking
- August Bradley - Life Design - PPV
Maybe you are also trying to combine different approaches in your notetaking workflow, or just searching for a vault template, which provides sufficient features out of the box. My templates and workflow may give you some help. So, I decided to share my vault template and create guidance for the workflow.
The template vault is hosted on GitHub. laozhou-in-germany/Chens_LMS_Public
Most files in the vault are extracted from my private vault. I optimize them constantly during my daily use. It will be for a long period of time a work in progress.
Default folder for note, drafts of all possible note types, sorted later.
Pillars, value goals, outcomes & projects, also routines and mindsets
Daily routines , events, meetings and other journal elements
Literature notes, atomic notes, evergreen notes and topics
Plan, Review and workspaces
Templates, Config, Help…
