2018 was about acquiring, creating and enjoying knowledge.
414 posts were added, of which:
- 10 summaries, which represent my knowledge in a sentence about a topic.
- 5 highly important topics and another 6 less important.
- 8 asides, which are like axioms, one should know it instinctively.
- 68 quotes, which are good to know when you want to express your knowledge in an expert way.
To acquire knowledge 9 sources were checked every day, more times per day. And 9 people were followed constantly.
Many times when writing posts. It was easy to look up the knowledge base and use the items with confidence. It gave authority to the final result.
A few times helping out friends with good advice, best practices and tools. In seconds.
Worth the effort?
Definitely not. Too much input and far few output. More knowledge was added than queried.
This kind of journaling / knowledge base building is useful mostly / only for research projects. When the amount of input is close to the output.
In 2019 the whole process will be relaxed. New entries will be added a few times a year. Let’s see what the difference will be.
