Origins of smart notes & difference from "regular notes" [QUICK Notes Series #1]

The first in a series about how to take better notes so you never start from scratch with a new idea. In the first episode I cover the origins of the Zettelkasten, Smart Notes, and how they're different from how I took notes as a student.
My name is Matt Ragland and in each episode I share a short lesson about how to be more focused and productive. I draw these lessons from personal experience, work with clients, modern psychology and real-world application.
