My ADHD Note-taking Journey

I can't retain a thought for more than 5 minutes. I always hop into different tasks before finishing them. At the same time, I always want to understand "why" but never get the chance to piece things together thanks to my scattered thoughts. As a divergent thinker, I wanted something to help piece together my random thoughts and make sense of this madness I call my brain. I've tried traditional organizational techniques with folders and tags and never could figure out a good system. It would st

Filter Fleeting Notes synced to Obsidian

As of plugin v0.3.6 of the Fleeting Notes app: When syncing Fleeting Notes to Obsidian, it's often desirable to only sync certain Fleeting Notes. Everyone has their own workflow and we thought it'd be best to be as accommodating as possible. So, we came up with a solution to allow users to filter Fleeting Notes that are synced into Obsidian based on the text in the note. To enable this feature, go into the Fleeting Notes settings and find the setting to "Notes filter text". Add whatever notes

Our vision for Fleeting Notes

We haven't spoken with many people about my plan with Fleeting Notes but the ultimate goal is to make connected note-taking widespread. Well, what do we mean by that?

One of the most common ways of capturing content from the web is by highlighting/annotating content. There are many different tools to accomplish this like Readwise, raindrop.io, and Hypothesis.

The Best Way to take Youtube Notes for Obsidian

Right now, taking notes from Youtube (YT) to Obsidian sucks. To take YT notes, I need to manually copy the timestamp of the video, annotate the video with the correct timestamp, and put all of this in Obsidian. If I don't keep track of the timestamp, coming back to the video requires me to sift through the video to find where my note is referencing. I don't like this manual work so I decided to add a better way in Fleeting Notes (FN). When taking Youtube notes in Fleeting Notes, the YT timestam
