The books have a certain structure where it's the title, which is normally the point of the book, the blurb on the back, which is what you can expect, the table of contents, which is like an overview of like what you will read and then the content itself.
Which is essentially just the same points, but remixed into long form writing. If you think about it that way, what that means is that a book is only a format where you send a point across multiple forms. That's it like, I, I can, I can actually, I can actually guess. What a book is trying to say from the table of contents, right?
If you, and this is something, maybe this is an experiment that you should try, like in your Roam. Um, the next book notes that you're gonna do a summary on, copy the table of contents over and write what you think will go in there
then read the book. Yeah. Yeah. And the reason why is because if, and I'm sure you've, you've done lots of long form writing before in your own time or for your blog.
Um, These are completed products, which means that these titles, these chapters, these words are tried and true and they're accepted for publishing. So these are at the best that they can possibly be, which means that if you have your own interpretation or your own spin of what the table of contents could be.
It's another angle in smart notes. And you might already get to the point already just from reading the table of contents. Yeah. It's another X. Yeah. And that are X can lead to Y yeah. Rome notion, Evernote, all of these are just ways to enable X so you can get to Y right? Like without, without us, then there is no creativity. There is no serendipity. There is no new ideas, insights, inspiration. So
