P.A.R.A. Part 3 — How to build serendipity into your productivity system

Resurfacing Tiago’s in-depth P.A.R.A series

Hi Praxis subscribers!

Welcome back to the third installment in Tiago Forte’s series on P.A.R.A., the organizational system he uses to organize his digital life. 

In this post, Tiago shares a web app, RandomNote, designed specifically to work within the P.A.R.A. system to surface new, random ideas. While he originally anticipated using it once a week, he actually finds himself using it dozens of times every day. It transformed the relationship between his memory, ideation, and creativity, and cut down on his social media time. 

Here are the first and second posts if you missed the previous installments in the series or just want a refresher.
