Working with ideas is hard.

We have too many scattered thoughts and lost notes. So we abandon the app of the week and search for the next app that will magically solve the chaos in our brains.

Making leaps of insights with your notes is even harder.

You know Obsidian is the answer, but you still don’t know how to best use it. It can be overwhelming, and you keep asking, “What if there’s a better way?”

Mastering Obsidian makes it easy—and incredibly fun.

Once you master Obsidian, you will astound yourself with what you are capable of. But to do this, you need to get the reps and work on the right stuff. Break the barriers that are holding you back.

Most of us are stuck in first gear.

We have been chugging along for so long we don’t realize there is a better way. We shrug and say, “taking digital notes is okay I guess,” and we never crack Mach 1—we just continue grinding along.

But what if…

What if you could finally travel at the speed of your thoughts?

What if you could use your digital notes to rapidly make sense of your world?

What if you could master being a note-maker in Obsidian?

Here's the good news...

You can.

All you have to do is go outside your comfort zone, do the reps, and master it.

Obsidian Flight School will help you master Obsidian so you can fly around your notes like never before.

Obsidian Flight School

I’m now more fluent in “Obsidianese”. :)

I can work faster, focusing on my thoughts rather than bumping into the often occurring “there must be a way to do this, I wish I knew it”.

Also, I feel more knowledgeable about Obsidian’s potential
and what it can do for me.

If you search “Obsidian” on Youtube, you will probably come across my free Obsidian for Beginners series. It’s just six videos. They have been helpful for a lot of people. The Youtube channel has now been viewed over one million times.

Since then, countless people have asked if I could do a course on Obsidian. I resisted for two reasons: I have prioritized the LYT Workshop, and other people already had made courses.

So I wasn’t really excited to add yet another course to the ecosystem if it wasn’t somehow…different. And it took a while for me to figure out what that difference would be.

But now I know...

I wanted to create a non-linear, choose-your-adventure training program where you get better at Obsidian by actually using Obsidian. That's why I created "Flight School".

Obsidian Flight School is an experience-driven approach to learning. It is an experiment in "curated but self-driven, non-linear education". That makes it a big risk.

Some of you will love it. Some of you won't.

But that's fine.

When it comes to teaching and training, I will never stop shouting "reps, reps, reps".
Watching videos alone is not enough.

If you really want to learn how to pilot Obsidian; then YOU have to pilot it.

I love how you are incorporating hotkeys
lesson by lesson.

I'm finding learning these hotkeys to be so effortless so far, and I'm seeing great improvement in my Obsidian use.

I'm much quicker with hotkeys, and you've shown me interesting ways to use various plugins that I wasn't aware of before starting.

What helped most was how you structured lessons within Obsidian in a way that pushed me to learn to use the program in
a guided and fun way.

You had baked in answers for most of what I faced and I picked it up much quicker AND much deeper because of your efforts.

My ability to navigate in an advanced way in such a short time boggles my mind.

I have used other apps for years and don’t feel as proficient and capable as I do now with Obsidian in less than a month.

Obsidian Flight School
more than met my expectations.

I have a more efficient use of hotkeys and navigating (I knew a bunch but was missing some major helpers).

I feel confident I’ll find many more...

Obsidian Flight School is very practical and useful.
Love the design and thinking behind it...
I’m now getting faster at some core maneuvers
the more I remember and use the hotkeys.
Jen Kuo
After using it, I'm able to create and link my notes much quicker.
I know so many core maneuvers now
that I can use all the time to speed up my note making
and navigating them as I link and curate them.
Doug Warren
There is a great deal of potential in the "rep"
and test idea, and the guided experience is excellent.
The potential of the plugins... was an eye-opener.
R. Anthony Perez-Tamayo, MD, PhD
And so far so good in Flight School. I actually made a note
(as in, for real not in Flight School)
earlier today and used it in some client work, extracted
in a PDF with live links and an embedded photo and everything!  
They were duly impressed and it
for sure made my life easier.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Obsidian? 

Obsidian is a powerful knowledge base on top of a local folder of plain text Markdown files. You can learn more about it here.

What's your refund policy? 

This program includes the complete master vault which cannot be returned. As such, we are not able to offer refunds.

However, to prevent disappointment or dissatisfaction, we have two ways to ensure client fit and client success:

1) Prior to purchase you can review many free videos that will let you understand if the style of the instructor is a good fit for you.

2) If after purchasing you are unhappy for any reason, please contact us and we will go to great lengths to solve problems and address any issues you experience. Let us know if you are having any problems at help@linkingyourthinking.com.

Are there any prerequisites before I buy this?

You should be able to use modern-day note applications. If you have only used Microsoft Word, this is may be too advanced for you. If you have used apps like Evernote or Notion, you should be fine.

What’s the difference between Obsidian Flight School and The LYT Workshop?

Obsidian Flight School only teaches you how to use a specific application called "Obsidian".

The Linking Your Thinking Workshop trains you to sustainably think better and create more value over your lifetime.

Learn more about the LYT Workshop right here.

What kind of support will you offer when I face challenges in using this?

Flight School is a self-directed program, where the Vault will guide you through lessons and practical exercises. No direct instructor support is provided in the Flight School. Instead, you will be provided support videos and access to a community of peers where you can exchange experiences and seek support from.

How often will you be updating this with the new plugins or features in Obsidian?

Version 0.8 releases Nov 18th. Version 1.0 releases January 4th. After that, Updates will be ongoing but sporadic, and never scheduled too far in advance. Updates will mostly cover new features, plugins, and hotkeys.

What if my main device I use with Obsidian is a mobile device?

Flight School trains you to become faster and more confident in Obsidian. 

But it was designed with a keyboard in mind. 

If you are using a tablet like an iPad, try to have an external keyboard. That way, you will still be able to take advantage of the keyboard shortcuts.

If you are on a mobile device without a keyboard, you won't be able to achieve the same speeds, but you will still gain confidence.
