I love note taking and I love the zettelkasten system. At the beginning of my journey, I was all about looking at all the videos of setting up your system. It overwhelmed me with ideas, I was always looking for the new shiny system. There is one problem with showcasing other people zettelkastens, it is their system. This is not necessarily either a good or bad problem; however, it has the potential to set up in the viewers' mind that if their system isn’t like the one they are watching — they could think that theirs isn’t good enough.
