Frequently Asked Questions

What is this course all about, and what can I learn from it?

Linking Your Thinking is a workshop where you'll work to create your custom PKM system. PKM stands for Personal Knowledge Management. It is a way of working with your ideas in your notes so you can be a better thinker.

The LYT workshop is also a community-driven learning experience. So you'll have a great time learning more from and with your fellow crew members.

The live workshop will run for 6-weeks. But you can continue to work with your PKM system and connect with others after that. Because all members will have lifetime access to the curriculum and alumni community.

Linking Your Thinking is all about making a change in your relationship with knowledge.

Will this course teach me how to use Obsidian?

No, but you will naturally learn a lot about it during the workshop. Nick’s course—Obsidian for Beginners, Fiddlers, and Noodlers—will be available early Fall 2021. (Feel free to join the waitlist right here to be the first to know when this is ready.)

If you're eager to join the workshop, but you feel the need to start learning Obsidian, you can start learning our free Obsidian course right here.

How much is the workshop?

You can join the LYT Workshop through the following options: 

  • Workshop: $922
  • Workshop+: $1422
  • Workshop++: $3322

The details for each can be found here.

How does the workshop work?

LYT Onboarding
In the following weeks after your enrollment, we'll be sending you guided and step-by-step email instructions on how to get the best workshop experience.

Learn with your crew

In the 6-week workshop, you'll be working with your assigned crew. Your crew will be up to 15 diverse members from all over the world and led by a crew guide.

6 weekly lessons + LYT Guidebook
There will be 6 units focused in providing you the tools and insight to create your LYT PKM system. We release each unit every Friday at 9:00 PDT / 16:00 UTC. You'll also receive an online guidebook for each unit every week. It will provide you the summary of each unit and prompts to work on.

The learning tools
1. Discourse to connect and connect with your crew members.
2. Zoom for the 2 live sessions each week.
3. Your linked based app of choice. (It doesn't have to be Obsidian. It can be Roam Research, Athens, Logseq, etc.) As long as it's an app that can create links to other notes, the LYT lessons will work for you.

The live sessions
1. Tuesday live sessions - we'll review the latest curriculum insights. We get hands-on time in breakout rooms. We rapidly develop our systems and ideas. We get and receive feedback to instantly iterate.

2. Wednesday live sessions - these are Nick's favorite part of the workshop. They are high-value training sessions where we work the note-making muscles. These sessions are not just a fun exercise; they are a way to rebuild our muscles of thinking critically, creatively, and connectively. We get the repetitions. We drill the skills. Sensemaking sessions are an environment to coax out and habitualize your best thinking.

Showcase & Closing Ceremony
We also call these sessions "opening up the garage doors". It's the place and time for our members to share their best insights and progress so far in making their PKM system. A lot of our workshop members look forward to this session because of the different and creative applications of the LYT lessons. You can watch some of them right here.

Alumni Rendezvous
One of the best parts of the LYT community is connecting with like-minded thinkers during the workshop. But what about after? The LYT Rendezvous will be an environment where you can easily find and connect with people in the broader LYT community trying to solve the same problems you are!

What is a LYT Crew and LYT Guide? How will they help me learn more?

To make the learning more joyful and effective, you will be assigned with a crew of diverse LYT workshop members from all over the world. The group will be up to 15 people.

The LYT Guides will be the ones to help facilitate and guide your learning experience. There is usually one or two assigned for each crew.

What is the Linking Your Thinking curriculum?

Unit 1 - PKM & Idea Emergence
Unit 1 sets the scene of “Personal Knowledge Management”.

✅ We will explore the rocky transition from the “folders-only” systems we all     grew up with, to systems that allow for robust linking.
✅ We will identify how note-taking practices have failed us, show how note-making practices are needed.
✅ We will identify the ways we can make relationships between notes.
✅ We will reflect on our own unique PKM drives, styles, goals, and use cases.


Unit 2 - Growing Value

In this Unit, we dive deeply into questioning where “value” comes from.

We explore the Time Value of Ideas, and the compound effects of your PKM habits.
We get hands-on reps creating and building evergreen notes.
We consider how we actually even approach our knowledge in the first place.
And we finish by playing around with the LYT Workshop’s PRM (“Personal Relationship Manager”).

Unit 3 -
There will be 6 units focused in providing you the tools and insight to create your LYT PKM system. We release each unit every Friday at 9:00 PDT / 16:00 UTC. You'll also receive an online guidebook that will have the summary of each unit and prompts you'll need to focus on.

Unit 4 -
1. Discourse to connect and connect with your crew members.
2. Zoom for the 2 live sessions each week.
3. Your linked based app of choice. (It doesn't have to be Obsidian. It can be Roam Research, Athens, Logseq, etc.) As long as it's an app that can create links to other notes, the LYT lessons will work for you.

Will there be a recording of the live sessions?

Yes. We aim to upload all recordings in 1-2 hours after the live event. They will be posted in our forum. Recordings will also have timestamps and chat transcripts available.

Will my learning experience still be great even
if I can’t attend the live sessions
and just watch the recordings? 

Yes. But it’s up to you. Here’s what you do...

Watch the recording as soon as possible. Make comments below (since we use Discourse, everything is integrated beautifully). Ask questions below. Like bees to honey, you’ll attract your fellow workshop members to respond. And once they do, you’ve not only continued the conversation—you’ve brought it to you! In that way, it’s the next best thing to being at the event live. Can you commit to watching the recording, making comments, and asking questions? I would hope so.

So you feel it’s still valuable for me as a person in a different timezone to use the recordings and experience it asynchronously there

Yes. Every workshop has robust interaction between all participants. That’s where you get the best experience: by leaning forward, commenting, sharing, and asking questions. If you do that, your asynchronous workshop experience will be a powerful one.

How often are the course materials updated?

In every workshop, Nick is in there tweaking this, fine-tuning that. The core curriculum won’t be changed and many of the videos are so good there is no reason to update them, but everything in the workshop—every lesson, every question, every prompt—is gone over with a fine-toothed comb and constantly tweaked for an even better curated experience for every workshop. It’s a labor of love and rest assured, you will only get the best.

Can I download the lessons?

No. The lessons are deeply integrated into our custom learning platform (on Discourse). Learning isn’t just about consuming videos. The best learning is a mixture of text, audio, and video blended seamlessly with organic interactions through comments and side-channels—stirred consciously with live sessions and group discussions.

What did your graduates say about their experience in the workshop?

We’re grateful for the positive feedback we’ve received from the last four workshops. You can check their testimonials here. You can also check some of the PKM systems they’ve built here.

Can you help me decide? Which is the best option for me: Workshop, Workshop +, or Workshop++?

If you want to maximize your progress and time is your priority, you’ll go farther in less time with the Workshop+ and Workshop++ programs.

That said, the core Workshop program is so robust, it’s usually the best choice for most people.

Will you offer a teacher or student’s discount? Do you offer scholarship programs?

We support teachers and students. That said, scholarship applications are closed for now. We will open applications again for Workshop 5 around January 10, 2022. Join the waitlist so you'll be the first to know.

Will Nick be able to answer all of my questions?

Nick will be able to answer your top questions, and he will be highly active in the forum. And based on our alumni's feedback, the equal value will be coming from the bonds and discussions you create with your crew members and the entire cohort.

For Workshop+ members, you will have a LYT Coach who has gone through the LYT Workshop and guidance of Nick. They will be able to assist you directly.

For Workshop++ members, you will have a one-on-one session with Nick Milo. You'll also have a members' only session together with Nick and the other Workshop++ members.

I'm just starting out. Can I really build my
custom PKM with this workshop?

It's more important and valuable to attend the workshop now—at the start of your journey—as opposed to later, so you do things the right way at the very start. You'll avoid a lot of pain years down the road.

During the Summer Workshop, Manuel was completely new to PKM—just like you.

He wrote up a very nice testimonial. We're sharing it ALL below, but definitely read the bolded words. Hopefully it helps bring clarity for you.

Manuel's Testimonial about the LYT Workshop

I’m a student from Porto, Portugal, currently studying Computer Science.

Before the LYT workshop, one of the problems I had with my digital notes was being able to structure my notes in a way that would help me quickly find a "place" to store a new note or to have a safe and fast way to recall notes that I had previously written.

Because of that I often found myself having notes in duplicate, which made it quite difficult to organize everything.

I was invited to the beta group of LYT from Nick.
My main concern was that I thought that PKM being something new to me, would make me fall behind others that were already familiar with it. But even though there were such people I quickly realized that the workshop was built in a way that even someone who is only slightly familiar with PKM could understand.

After joining the workshop, I feel much more comfortable with my system as I feel I can fairly quickly find something that I've written, and there's barely any struggle to find where to write/save a new note.Another difference was that I found myself thinking more with my notes, I started noting down ideas that I either read or popped up in a conversation to see if I could gain anything from it. Eventually I started connecting those ideas in several (sometimes quite different) contexts, and seeing it in different perspectives is very interesting just by itself but can even improve what I know about the idea.

Something that even though it was mentioned in the workshop I hadn't really thought it through was how I could step away from my notes for a while (days/weeks/...) and came back to it later, being able to in no time get familiar with how most things were organized just by spending some time just browsing in it. I really believe this comes from how I now structure my system.

I learned a lot in the workshop itself of course, but I learned a great deal "just" by hearing and seeing how other people dealt with their problems (in PKM), some were things that I saw as an obvious improvement of what I was doing, and others just new ideas of what I could implement on my own.

Having a place built from these concepts/structures can really improve how you do many of your daily activities. You would definitely be surprised by how fundamental it can be in so many of the things that you already do. It's so pleasing to have a place where you can save and then quickly find many of the things that I want to remember.
