One helpful tip per day:)

在我们之前的分享中,我们曾经推荐过 Nat Eliason 的书摘;在今天的分享中,他介绍了自己如何使用 RoamReasearch 来管理这些书摘。尽管书摘都是电子化了,但他还是偏爱阅读实体书,然后用 Readwise 扫描高亮存储下来(才知道 Readwise 有这么棒的功能)。

So as you add more notes to your database, not just from books but from articles, conversations, podcasts, and more, you can start using those notes to enrich your database with whatever information is interesting and relevant to you.
Books are an excellent source of knowledge to reference, so let’s go over some of the ways you can easily start saving your notes from them.
The downside with Kindle highlighting is that it's too easy, and you can end up over-highlighting and having to delete a bunch of them later.
I prefer reading physical books and using sticky tabs to note useful passages as I go, so I can go back and pull out the best ones later (it's not as bad as it sounds, don't worry). This takes a bit longer, but it lets you enjoy reading a physical book vs. being in front of a screen, and it makes the note taking process a bit more thoughtful.
And if you prefer to read physical books like I do, Readwise has a text scanner that lets you take a picture of a page of a book, and highlight the section you want to save. It's a bit more manual than highlighting in Kindle as you go, but even for books where I added a ton of sticky tabs it only takes 15-20 minutes to extract all my highlights.

In our previous share, we've recommended Nat Eliason's book digests; in today's share, he explains how he uses RoamReasearch to manage them. Even though the digests are electronic, he still prefers to read physical books and then scan and highlight them using Readwise (just realized Readwise has such a great feature).
