Build Your Custom PKM System Now

Linking Your Thinking is a 6-week hands-on workshop that will teach, train, and support you in building a custom knowledge management system you can trust. Learn how to never lose your ideas again. Connect and create meaningful insights.

The Fall of the Note "Taker"

Suddenly, my notes felt lost to me. Where did it all go wrong?

It was a joy in the beginning. But as my digital library grew, something happened. My notes started to disappear. Not literally, but I couldn't find them because there was so much junk clogging up my searches.

Too much NOISE drowning out the SIGNAL.

Like a chronic headache, a terrible sensation followed me everywhere. My digital thoughts felt locked away. Somehow, I gave myself “digital dementia.”

How did this happen? How does my joy evaporate?

And how did I overcome it?
This isn't "cookie-cutter".
By the end of this workshop, you'll have:
  • New tools to reliably take your thinking to a higher level.
  • Your own personalized, flexible, and future-proof PKM system.
This is the exact system of "fluid frameworks" I’ve used to build my personal digital library with thousands of notes.

It's helped me develop my thinking, expand my businesses, produce fulfilling creative projects, and engage in countless compelling conversations.
From 2008 to 2015, I used Evernote. My notes were great at first. But just like the creepy character in the movie offering our heroes candy, the initial sweetness lured me into a trap that I barely escaped from!
It's a trap image
My notes still have the scars to show for it.
Scars like horrendously formatted text and links that no longer work.

​For the past six years, I discovered a better way to organize my ideas—and build them too.
​​Yes, it's based on linking notes together.
But it's equally based on an emergent structure that can organically support your notes over time.
Linking Your Thinking provides me a method.
A process I now use to grow my ideas.

Before I took this workshop I had thousands of notes on Evernote.
They contain everything that interest me, but these notes make me feel anxious because there was not an easy way to find them or have them related.

Now I have more clarity in putting my ideas in order.

Mapping My Way Out

Even as I sank into Evernote's trap of digital madness, I was clawing back. I developed a basic system of using “Map" notes, which were basically “notes with links to other notes."

I used these "Map" notes to grow, develop, and manage a fitness boxing business — expanding it in the US, Scandinavia, and Saudi Arabia. I also used it extensively to produce two indie feature films—along with a bunch of other common uses like writing, tracking, and journaling.

The Maps—now called MOCs for "Maps of Content"—worked, but the health of my digital note system continued to fail. After several years, just the thought of opening Evernote created anxiety for me. The happiness I used to feel using my digital note library was experiencing “death by a thousand cuts”.

Nick's Background Image
I am so grateful for this community of such talented and intelligent people.

I am always learning new things from them and getting questions answered by a very warm and curious crowd. I really love this workshop and community and can't believe how much it has helped me grow in such short period of time.

It's making me rethink how I organize way more than notes in Obsidian.
So glad that I took the leap.

Scaling Zettelkasten

I left Evernote and went to plain text in 2015. I adopted the Zettelkasten Method and started linking my thinking. But even that was not enough to scale my thoughts.
I craved a higher level to view and develop my thoughts. I craved my maps.
So I continued to develop my mapping system.

I used my MOCs (map notes) as the foundation for my entrance into the entertainment industry in Los Angeles.

In the span of one year, I went from being a PA (essentially getting people coffee), to being the assistant editor on a feature film (working for a brilliant Emmy winning editor), to getting my first credit as an editor (a 5x upgrade in pay).

While being in the right place at the right time certainly played a role, so did having a system of digital notes that I could develop and trust. I used it to accelerate my career by extensively developing 4 major MOCs under the topics of: The Industry, Relationships, Storytelling, and the Craft of Editing.

I felt I had a few special ideas — like MOCs — that I hadn’t seen elsewhere else.

But I also figured it was just a cognitive bias I had. That's when the Obsidian beta came around. That's when I shared the "Linking Your Thinking" Frameworks in a starter kit now known as the LYT Kit.
"You write them like you're going to read them again" was a huge revelation.

Being able to give yourself different types of context, depending on where you are, has been... one of the most valuable lessons for me across any of the parts of this that we're talking about.

What the Linking Your Thinking System Solves

The Linking Your Thinking (LYT) System solves the
two biggest problems in PKM: too much structure and too little.

1. Too much structure
The biggest problem with Microsoft Word and even Evernote was
how dependent they are on folders (not to mention crippling “feature-bloat”).

Our brains don’t work naturally within a folder-dominant framework.
It makes it difficult to develop ideas.

2. Too little structure
The "Folder Rebellion" has now gone mainstream with apps like The Archive, Roam, and Obsidian. They all rely on LINKS as the main way of relating notes.

Links are an evolutionary leap over folders.
Links encourage the development of your ideas to more closely resemble how our brains actually work.

But the problem with only using links is how claustrophobic it can feel…

It's like navigating Mirkwood Forest at night—with only a torch.
Sure it’s adventurous, but sometimes you want the birds-eye view.

(Remember the LYT Kit? It's now been downloaded over 25,000 times!)

The LYT Framework solves both problems in PKM:
  1. You can develop ideas quickly and effortlessly using direct links.
  2. You can zoom out and confidently see the bigger picture at any time!

The Rise of The Note “Maker”

Before the 2020s, a note was just a note. A note was something you took, used, and tossed.

Let's call this: "Churn and Burn".

But now, in the Age of the [[Linked]] Note things are different. Now notes can grow and evolve with other notes, to form
a living system of related thoughts that you can develop throughout your lifetime.

Let's call this: "Know and Grow".

THE ANSWER ISN'T MORE NOTES... IT'S BETTER NOTES.

Thinking through linking your ideas is seriously a revolution. Sure, the internet has had links for decades, but now regular peons like you and me can create links as quickly as we can think of them — without any programming, and in a way that is future-proofed!

We stand on the cusp of this new age of thinking, and like a great frontier, the opportunities stretch out before us.

But with this superpower finally at our fingertips, it's important to have a flexible system you can: customize, scale, and trust.
At first, I was a bit hesitant in joining the workshop because of the price... but I went with my gut, and it was/is so worth the money.

The workshop makes you look into why you need a PKM in the first place and what it could do for you. At the end of the workshop, a new world has opened up, and you will realize this is just the beginning of the journey.

Create your Custom PKM System NOW!

You have the ability to create FAST notes. You have the ability to create LINKED notes.
You just have to figure out a way to: make, grow, develop, and scale your ideas now—and into the future.
With Linking Your Thinking, my prime directive is helping you get more joy out of your digital notes, on your way to accomplishing valuable things with them.

Is This Workshop for You?

This workshop is for you if you are...
  • A life-long learner, a raconteur, or any sort of curious, open mind
  • A writer or researcher or student
  • An independent thinker who is interested in many things
  • Feeling discouraged with information overload
  • Tired of being disorganized with your valuable notes
This workshop is for you if you love...
  • Sharing your unique insights. Like, how you found wildly interesting links between Frankenstein, Ex Machina, and Greek theater—and how they all relate to the use of digital and physical use of masks in society—and you want to be able to share that insight today—as well as ten years from now (with whatever added complexities Life has thrown your way—like what using a mask means in the politicized society dealing with a pandemic).
This workshop is for you if you want to...
  • Build and create things
  • Enhance your working memory when dealing
    with complex ideas
  • Never lose the ideas and hard-earned insights you've had
  • Construct a well-formed essay or write a book
  • Develop a living system of related thoughts that you can tend to throughout your lifetime—and then maybe even pass it on to your relatives as the gift they never knew they wanted ;)
  • Never worry about forgetting your valuable ideas
  • Keep Optionality: the ability to pivot or shift careers, side projects at the drop of a hat (or the onset of a pandemic!)
This workshop is especially for you if...
  • You find thinking to be inherently valuable.

Please Don't Sign Up If You're Still Chasing "Shiny"

This workshop is NOT for you if you want to keep chasing:
  • Rigid "one size fits all" systems
  • The latest apps  
  • Hyper productivity
  • Fragile over-optimizations
Before I took this workshop, I had unanswered problems with my productivity flow that I could only begin to solve.

I continued to float from app to app to app like so many other people.

Now that I've gone through it, I feel confident that I no longer need to do that - my system now is it. I'll still be with this when I'm 120 years old.

Thank you! Your submission has been received!
Oops! Something went wrong while submitting the form.
Six weeks of intensive interactions with:

1) great content
2) great people
3) great organization/production
4) great help to go over whatever issues emerged during the workshop
5) extremely friendly staff willing to help at ANY time even though I was a novice in many areas
6) It was even funny; I had a lot of fun and had many laughs together with my Cohort. The biggest thing I am taking away is one of the most pleasant experiences in my entire life.

If you are looking for a "language" to exchange information between your most inner-self and the external world, this workshop will get you on the way.

The Linking your thinking workshop helped me use my OWN brain when I write or make sense of all the data incoming. And to align what I do in those depths to what my core values and bigger mission is in life.

The experience I liked the most was the idea of making sharp choices: question everything. Especially your own assumptions and hidden ways of thinking and doing.

This was a game changer for me. My PKM is a direct reflection of me and not some half-modelled, half-copied system of someone else.

Moving from note-taker to note-maker is one of the most powerful ways you can improve the quality of your own thinking.

This workshop will show you how to harness the power of idea emergence to improve your thinking, engage with the work of other thinkers, boost your creativity and make each day more productive.

I especially liked the Discourse community. Certain members of our cohort have been terrific about sharing their successes, failures, attempts, frustrations, aspirations and their organizational strategies, and I loved those interactions.

A Workshop Designed and Led by Nick Milo

Nick Milo's Profile Picture - Linking Your Thinking
Nick has used his digital notes to develop, grow, and manage a fitness boxing business—keeping it business for over a decade and expanding it in the US, Scandinavia, and Saudi Arabia.

He's used his digital notes to produce and act in two indie feature films, along with a bunch of other typical uses like writing, tracking, and journaling.

Most recently, Nick used his digital notes as the foundation for his entrance into the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, where he accelerated his career by developing 4 major MOCs under the topics of: The Industry, Relationships, Storytelling, and the Craft of Editing.

In the span of one year, he went from being a PA (essentially getting people coffee), to being the assistant editor on a feature film (working for a brilliant Emmy winning editor), to getting his first credit as an editor (a 5x upgrade in pay).

While being in the "right place at the right time" certainly played a role, so did having a system of digital notes that he could develop and trust — notes that have been compounding in value for him with each passing year.

How long will I have access to the program?

You will have lifetime access to the program.

Plus, as we update the curriculum and continue to provide resources for the workshop, you will continue to have access to those updates.

Can you show me examples of previous students?

For sure! We have so many examples to show, and they are starting to make their way onto Youtube.

You'll see Designers. College Students. Marketers. Interesting Thinkers. Writers and 1000-page novel Worldbuilders...and that's just for starters. This is a handy public reference for you.

Their full Showcase Presentations, along with their Q&A's are available only to workshoppers.

I'm new to Obsidian/Roam/Notion/Remnote. What type of technical help can I expect?

While this workshop isn't course on how to use a specific piece of software, you're surrounding yourself with people you can help, and surprisingly, like to help a lot!

That said, please have a basic understanding of how to make links and how to make tags. This is not a course on teaching you Obsidian!

Now as far as the workshop, all the examples are shown in Obsidian, and the fancy advanced features are not needed. I'll talk about some cool hotkeys from time to time, but the focus is squarely on how we can work with link-based notes. These are timeless fundamentally no matter the software.

This ties nicely into the next question....

Do I have to use Obsidian?

No. You'll just want to use something that allows you to link notes quickly.

So that would be something like Obsidian or Roam or Remnote or Athens (I wouldn't use Notion because it's a bit too clunky for the speed of ideas) but anything that allows for link-based notes can work.

I'm a Roam Research user, will this work for me?

Yes! Because the principles are based on linking ideas.

We had a few people use Roam in the previous workshop. They found the MOCs in particular to be very empowering.

I'd love to join, but I'm from a developing country and the cost is too high for me. Are there scholarships?

"Like a string of beads, it is our unique differences and intricacies that make us so appealing and attractive." — Lindsey Lunsford, M.E.M., Second Edition DEI Fellow

It would break my heart if the reason you can't attend is because of where you were born. That's not just. It's important to me—and crucial for all of our thinking—that we have a diverse mixture of perspectives. This means not turning a blind eye to how the price point can immediately exclude valuable voices.

That said, you can apply for our scholarship program. Please sign up for our waiting list so that you can be informed for the next opening.

What amount of time will I need to commit to the course?

It depends. The minimal time you should be able to commit to make this thing worthwhile is probably around 1-2 hours per week.

For the expected experience, try to budget around 6-8 hours per week—that includes the live sessions of course.

For the best experience, just attend the live sessions (or watch the recordings as soon as they are available), go through the lessons, make comments, read what others have shared, and be an active part of this amazing gathering of inspiring thinkers!

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, we do. But only for Workshop and Workshop +.
The links for the payment plans will be available when we're ready to open the next workshop.
Click here for the Workshop+ payment plan option.

Can’t I just learn all of this for free online or in Youtube?

I do my best to provide MASSIVE amounts of free value on Youtube. But even that content can't compare to the value you get in the workshop.

The workshop is hands-on, focused-work, with people solving the same problems that you're trying to solve...that's how you accelerate your growth! Instead of walking down the wrong path for several years (like I did in Evernote by over-collecting), you can quickly revise and iterate your knowledge management system in "real-time" so you not only build a system that remains useable and scales with your ever-changing needs—but you also ensure that your digital notes remain a source of joy.

Workshop+ enrollment is now open. Limited to 20 spots only. Enroll here.
