Mental State Separation Principle


In gtd in 5 stages and zettelkasten, giving separate times to capture and consolidate is a game changer.

My brain is not acting the same in both cases.

When capturing, it explores, it is full of entropy, ready to blow out thoughts.

When consolidating, it brings order, it makes sense, it composes thoughts.

I realize that separating explicitly those state of mind help keeping a clear mind, while trusting my trusted system for helping me growing my knowledge.

My brain needs to expand and compress and expand and compress etc.
