[BPN #44] What is PKM?

Welcome to the Boldly Productive Newsletter!

But what even is personal knowledge management?

What is Personal Knowledge Management?

I have a deep love of learning.

And there’s never been a time in history where so much information has been available to us.

It’s truly overwhelming how much stuff we can access from a tiny device that fits inside our pocket.

With this amount of information hitting us at all times in all directions, it’s impossible to make sense of any of it if we don’t have some way of capturing and organizing the things that are most important to us.

This has given rise to what has become known as personal knowledge management (PKM). A PKM system is a place to filter, store, explore, and connect ideas and information. Put simply, it’s where we take and store our notes. It’s a sandbox of things that interest us, a place to play with ideas, and make sense of the world around us.

Notes and ideas from others to explore
