Your second brain should actively grow and compound


As opposed to capturing a bunch of stuff that’s just rotting in there.

You can use your notes to advance in life. Or you can make it a collection of half-assed, half-baked highlights that you won’t ever look at again.

A wealth of information creates a poverty of attention.
Herbert Simon

Valuable nodes in a network become more valuable by virtue of being connected. Like Emergence.

Rotting nodes infect other nodes.
They take away from them.
It’s the weak link that breaks the chain.

Since ’ Writing is a tool for thinking, do you really want to reflect poor quality of thinking in your notes?
