📝Can I apply PARA to Zettelkasten?

PARA Method provides another way to organize information. It seems that I could apply some of the ideas to improve § Zettelkasten to clean up permanent notes.

PARA categories:

  • Project

  • Area

  • Resource

  • Archive


A combined system would contain:

  • A single main slip-box for all permanent notes (Resources)

  • Slip-box for bibliography and literature notes

  • Separate slip-boxes for projects

  • One or multiple slip-boxes for areas

  • Archive for archived projects (and areas)

It might be reasonable to have a single slip-box for all areas. My areas contain little notes so there won’t be much mess.
