How To Take Smart Notes: 10 Principles to Revolutionize Your Note-Taking and Writing | Praxis
> Instead of organizing by topic and subtopic, it is much more effective to organize by context. Specifically, the context in which it will be used. The primary question when deciding where to put something becomes “In which context will I want to stumble upon this again?”

> In other words, instead of filing things away according to where they came from, you file them according to where they’re going. This is the essential difference between organizing like a librarian and organizing like a writer.

I know I learned something, but how do I know about the future context I will need this again?

Where is this going? can be useful to design better systems to leverage existing tech to learn anything and be creative in solving problems.

> Principle #2: Do your work as if writing is the only thing that matters

What does this mean applied to writing code? is it writing code that matters? or is it building tools/products to make people's live more enjoyable?

What matters is **gaining knowledge and sharing it**. And writing is just about that, whatever the domain or topic.
