Hello obsidian users!
I’m new to obsidian and I have recently discovered “second brain” and GTD, PKM
So far, this is how my pkm looks like:
Calendar → Google Calendar
Notes → Google Keep
To-do & Habits → Ticktick
School Notes → OneNote (I’m inclined towards writing notes/drawing diagrams)
School To-do → Microsoft To-do
Other: writing on a rocketbook then export to OneDrive (School) and Google Drive (Personal)
With the above, I have been really frustrated as I’m unable to find notes I’ve written months ago, or form some kind of connection between notes.
It’s been overwhelming with so many different apps and all my notes are just a mess, just started furthering my studies after working for 2 years, and realizing I don’t remember anything and referencing my notes devastates me even further.
After reading about the concept of the second brain, I’ve researched multiple apps and it seems like obsidian fits my use case the best (local, secure, markdown, data view, UI gives my a sense of familiarity as a software engineer, and many more…)
I’m planning to streamline and have all my notes/to-dos/habits tracking in obsidian, integrated with google calendar.
Functions that I will need (but unsure if they can be implemented in Obsidian):
- Progressive water tracker (with data graph if possible)
- Simple Habits Tracker (Yes/No-Checkbox)
- Eisenhower Matrix
- Sync between devices (2 android devices (phone and tab), 2 windows pc)
Also would love to know what I could do to transcribe written notes in obsidian? (I’m prepared to take a few days to manually transcribe them if that’s necessary)
