Notes extend our minds. They offload our memories and allow us to think through complex issues. People have amplified their cognition using notes for a long time. But something is new: the hyperlink. Mindfully linked notes create networks that extend our minds in powerful new ways.
Duly Noted shows you tools, practices, and frameworks for thinking more effectively with notes. You’ll learn to capture insights when they come and recall them later in contexts where they make a difference. You’ll become a better reader, writer, learner, teacher, parent, worker — a better human.
