You will get results
The LYT system is fluid enough for me to think the way I am wired, and yet gives structure that my mind sometimes craves.

I didn't think it was possible to do that. It’s transformed my perception of what a system can be like and I am blown by the possibilities!


Sharalene Moonjely
The workshop is forcing me to embrace a "first principles" approach to idea emergence!

Marleaux Flournoy

The workshop prompts surprised me. The 7C's for note-making were super useful to start "wrestling with ideas". The enthusiasm and openness of the participants was amazing.

Cris S.

I was initially quite intimidated, however, I soon embraced what Nick said about “leaning in”, now, I am loving it and am already applying the LYT frameworks in my work.

Narelle Rowe

The Linking your thinking workshop will change the way you relate to knowledge and your own ideas. It will change the way you think for the better.

Helen Zhu

This workshop has helped me actually transition to being a note-maker through a well-paced and very thoughtful curriculum that has, to borrow one of Nick's phrases, helped me "do the reps."

Matthew Strother

I feel very confident about the prospects of leveraging a PKM system to transmute ideas in my head to real-world solutions. Really feels like learning a superpower!

Noah Matthews

The LYT framework, I think, has completely changed the paradigm of what it means to take good notes. I was really wanting to build the foundations of a system that will work for me, and I think I've done precisely that.

Calahan Morse

Meet the creator of Linking Your Thinking

Hi, I'm Nick Milo.

I’ve spent the last 15 years using digital notes to create and grow a fitness boxing into an international company, produce two independent feature films, become a TV and film editor, and—perhaps most importantly—to calm my thoughts and make better sense of the world around me.

I’ve tested and stretched the limits of Personal Knowledge Management in the “real world”:

  • from the fitness industry 🏃‍♂️  to the film industry 🎬
  • from the football field 🏈   to civil engineering 🏗
  • from strength training 🏋️‍♂️  to the boxing ring 🥊
  • from public speaking 🎤  to content creation 🎨

What I’ve learned is this: being effective at managing knowledge is a superpower—and linking your thinking supercharges it.

The frameworks I teach unlock our ability to work with ideas in a way that is fast, flexible, and future-proof. I have taught the principles of linked notes to thousands of people with great results. These principles are flexible enough for you to shape them to your unique use cases and personal needs.

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.

Introducing
image of ENCODE

UNLOCK THE WAY YOUR IDEAS EVOLVE.

The ENCODE framework gives you the keys to reliably unstick your thinking so you can generate more meaningful insights and spend more time doing your best work.

We encounter ideas
<< and >>
We express ideas

We can't avoid it. But we can get better at it.
The ENCODE Framework describes how
your knowledge evolves.

  • Encounter new ideas
  • Note the ideas that interest you
  • Connect ideas to things you know
  • Organize ideas so you can find them
  • Develop ideas to generate new insights
  • Express your ideas to others

Creative expression is NOT a linear process. ENCODE is our diagnostic tool to
decode where you are locked, so every part of you can be playing in sync.

Why the workshop works

Linking Your Thinking created and follows the
six principles of Lean Forward Learning™

Online learning is different. It's the wild west out there.

My deep goal is to inspire other teachers in online education to incorporate the paradigm of Lean Forward Learning into their own educational products and services.

The Lean Forward paradigm is an extension of the "Learn by doing" theory of education set forth by John Dewey in the early 1900's. However, the Lean Forward paradigm is different because it outlines principles specifically for online education.

I believe online workshop designed like Linking Your Thinking are just the beginning of a deeper level of digital learning. Sitting back and passively watching instructional videos is easy, but the results are far less powerful. Instead, the LYT formula forces you to grab the controls and pilot the ship.

Designing the right educational experience with these principles in mind provides students with an effective and profound learning experience.

Here are the Six Principles of Lean Forward Learning™.

  • Curated yet Non-linear: There is a sense of freedom, and yet, a sense of structure. As a student, you have some agency to “Choose Your Own Adventure”.
  • Hands-on Repetitions: The very nature of the workshop builds in inescapable hands-on repetitions with the exact thing you are trying to learn. Just like a video game, if you don't take the controls and move forward, you don't make progress. In other words, it's designed to force "unavoidable engagement".
  • Uncomfortable: The very nature of the workshop means that the adventurer will be uncomfortable, challenged, and sometimes even frustrated. Those are "deep reps". That’s when the deepest, stickiest learning happens! And it's the getting stuck that leads to sticky learning.
  • Immersive: It feels like a special self-contained mini-world...a holistic learning system.
  • Measurable: There are ways to measure a student's progress.
  • Multiple Avenues of Engagement: Students don't just "read" and "watch". They DO. Plus they also do some combination of: commenting, interacting, and sharing. This ties back into getting reps: reading reps, watching reps, doing reps...reps commenting, interacting, and sharing.

The LYT Workshop did not design the six principles of Lean Forward Learning™ . No. The principles were born from the LYT Workshop!

The LYT Workshop is the model for an all-encompassing tsunami of a learning experience.

Learning is better together

Active, not passive

The workshop is designed get you to lean forward and engage—in multiple ways—with the material. The result: deep and lasting personal gains.

Faster alone at first, further together forever

You are surrounded by curious—often brilliant—thinkers. Even if they are doctor and you are a dungeon master, their ideas will create new associations in your mind. From that, you may just solve your own unique use case!

Comfortably uncomfortable

In a safe environment, you will get your thinking muscles burning. You will be encouraged to share. And the insights you gain from seeing your system through the eyes of your peers can be transformational.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your refund policy?

We can inform you more about the details when you've signed up for our waitlist.

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. 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 or anything that allows for link-based notes can work.

I use Notion, Roam, or Logseq. 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 when we're ready to open it soon.

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 +.

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.
