🌱 Why do we need a second brain?

We often hoard (or save it for later) content because it gives us an illusion of knowledge. But in the end, it ends up increases our anxiety and doesn’t generate insights.

We didn’t produce any new things.

🌱 The point of taking notes is to think better

We need a place to keep all smart notes and resources that are important to us. And when we need something, we can easily find it later in our second brain.

The best way to truly understand anything is to turn those content into your own content, in your own words.

“Many note-takers hoard content because it gives them an illusion of knowledge.”
