One helpful tip per day:)

如何捡起一本还未读完的书?今天的分享中,作者利用一张小卡片作为书签,然后在在这张卡片上写下这些内容,方便自己重新捡起这本书。

  1. At the first session, I planned to continue with the structure notes on rationality, reason and intellect.
  2. At the end of the second session, I planned to build the structure note on emotionality (as opposed to rationality).
  3. At the end of the third session, I planned to review the sources “Schäfer2002” and “Bechara1995” in the next session.
  4. At the end of the fourth session, I planned to review the source “Berridge2007” and continue to work on note “201811081615” which I marked with a “qqq”

没错,作者是非常狂热的 zettelkasten 笔记爱好者。所以才有第四步里的笔记索引。这一方法在阅读电子书也可以借用,毕竟很多电子书 app 都内置了书签和便签功能。

How do you pick up a book that you haven't finished reading? In today's share, the author uses a slip card as a bookmark and then writes the following on this card to make it easier for herself to pick up the book again.

  1. At the first session, I planned to continue with the structure notes on rationality, reason and intellect.
  2. At the end of the second session, I planned to build the structure note on emotionality (as opposed to rationality).
  3. At the end of the third session, I planned to review the sources “Schäfer2002” and “Bechara1995” in the next session.
  4. At the end of the fourth session, I planned to review the source “Berridge2007” and continue to work on note “201811081615” which I marked with a “qqq”

Yes, the author is an avid Zettelkasten note taker. That's why there's an index of notes in step 4. This method can also be borrowed in reading e-books, after all, many e-book apps have built-in bookmarks and sticky notes.
