Duly Noted: Extend Your Mind Through Connected Notes

Jorge Arango

Thinking better makes you better. And few things extend your mind as quickly and powerfully as the humble note. Notes let you fulfill commitments, manage complicated projects, and make your ideas real. Digital notes take you further: using the right tools and a bit of discipline, you can cultivate a "personal knowledge garden" where your thinking will blossom.
