The inspiration for FAVA
P.A.R.A – Tiago Forte
Tiago coined the idea of “Building a Second Brain” based on Project, Areas, Resources and Archives. He bases his work on David Allen’s Getting Things Done (GTD) and adds a step up to digital materials. Tiago promotes the best tool for the job and offers suggestions.
PPV – August Bradley
August has a focus on the flow of organization which he tags as a Life Operating System based on Pillars, Pipelines and Vaults (PPV). Notion is his tool of choice.
LyT – Nick Milo
Nick promotes using linking as a mechanism to aid knowledge discovery, hence Linking Your Thinking(LyT). Obsidian is his tool of choice.
- Obsidian is a markdown-based, local file information system with sync’ing
- Evernote is a web-based information system with local device sync’ing
- Notion is a web-based information system with local device sync’ing
Other references that I have found with less impact on my thinking but possibly in line with yours.
