A big bucket of text

Matt Stein, How I Use Obsidian:

It’s also just a heap of Markdown I’ve carried around and put Obsidian in charge of sometime late in 2021. Those plain text files are mine and they don’t need Obsidian to be useful; I can open the same folder with iA Writer or Sublime Text and get right to work.

This is The Way to think about notes apps. Not a principle or lifestyle, but a layer of leverage over a big bucket of text.

Don’t fret if it starts off as an unimpressive pile of ideas or an overwhelming and unorganized collection of disconnected ideas. Use tools to organize and resurface the ideas, but don’t let that be the end goal. The end goal is to think better thoughts!
