The second brain system.

The second brain system.

Most knowledge systems look like an old garage.

Piles of stuff you no longer want.

All mixed up with stuff you do want.

But no way to find the gold.

Your system takes you to overwhelm.

But not to the thing you need.


So, last year I paid for some of the team to do this course from Tiago Forte.

It’s damn good.

Some blurb:

Building A Second Brain is a methodology for saving and systematically reminding us of the ideas, inspirations, insights, and connections we’ve gained through our experience. It expands our memory and our intellect using the modern tools of technology and networks.

Right now, we are integrating it across all the teams.

A shared Evernote system.

The more we use it, the more useful it will become.

Creativity is about connecting the dots.

But you have to know where you put the blinking dot in the first place.

The brain is for thinking.

Not remembering.

Outsource that stuff.
