I’ve been using Obsidian to take notes and track all the action items in my life. I’ve really enjoyed it and even signed up for the paid sync service.
I blame my sister Jen for this, because she’s the one who got me started with bullet journals. I journaled on paper for a few years, but then got a bit behind. I found myself either too busy, too tired, or too distracted to pick up the pen and the journal. I ALSO found myself really struggling with how to even make sense of two years worth of bullet journals and the pile of unresolved bullets.
Obsidian helps out here because I can take notes from my phone, iPad, or computer. I’m also a huge nerd about queries so I’m using Tasks and DataView so I can keep track of and sort the outstanding items.
Like most things I pick up – it INEVITABLY gets put back down when everything else gets too busy – but I’ve found it easy to pick back up.
I also created a “Shortcut” so I can voice activate create a note with Siri. Maybe that’s a post for another day.
