Moving myself from a P.A.R.A. orientation to my FAVA style is taking way more time than I like. However, since I never did any clean-up when I moved from Evernote to Obsidian, there was a lot of detritus. Hopefully while re-classifying and whittling down the entries, I am also freeing up some of my first brain.
One thing I like about the process is the organization template I’m using. It jogs me to think about how I will recover and discover the information. This template goes at the bottom of all my markdown files.
|FAVA||Links & Tags|
You’ll notice some special characters in the above entries which will be explained later. Adding this template to the files saved as P.A.R.A. is cementing my belief that storing in folders/retrieving with [[links]] and discovery with #tags is better than what I had been doing.
