I talk often about my apps, but rarely about how I use them to make things happen. Going share some of my process on October 29th at Tools for Thought Rocks.
Video for the event with timestamps and links below. See also the chat log.

- Capture everything: Get ideas out of your head as soon as possible.
- Organize if needed: Move it where you are likely to encounter it.
- Purge: Do it or delete it as soon as possible.
- avoid interruptions, checking out cool links, do everything later
- make time to read, to watch, often neglected, usually happens eventually
- collect from streams, stash in queues
- batch reading, watching, listening, writing…
- helps to have a place to put things
- queue for audiovisual media
- flashcards for language learning
- memory game
- queue for commiting to memory
- pocket Guns and Green Chile
- threads https://twitter.com/hdevalence/status/1453201816569606145

- removes friction from queues
- cooking motivation
- screencasts custom schema
- banner https://rosano.ca https://rosano.hmm.garden
- time-bound capturing
- not time-bound, “reference”
- todos as plain text list
- mix public and private, https://rosano.hmm.garden, [[Welcome to the jungle]]
- capture, brainstorm, organize, outline, draft, write, publish Writing creates a space for 'the answer to go' ; ubiquitous, local-first, little discontinuity
- queues for various newletters [[eq]], [[0q]], [[mq]], [[etemp]]
- [[journal-]] for jotting things
- 97% stuff anyone can do
- collecting drips of water into buckets; 0, 1, some; eventually ‘enough’/overflow [[#prompt]]
- sort, group, massage, tidy, publish
- “moving stuff around”
- not apping/technologizing/configuring: environment affords writing only
- collect, organize, purge with lots of queues
- let time work in your favour
- spend time on what motivates you
shoutout to jess and tft rocks for the [[#prompt]]
