Progressive Summarization III: Guidelines and Principles

In Part I, I explained Progressive Summarization, a method for easily creating highly discoverable notes. In Part II, I gave you many examples and metaphors of the method in action.

In Part III, I will give you further guidelines on how to make Progressive Summarization (PS) a part of your daily work. They have been gathered from several years of using the technique in my own projects, and teaching it in my workshops and courses.

There are 4 guidelines:

  1. Don’t apply all layers to all notes
  2. Use resonance as your criteria
  3. Design a system for the laziest version of yourself
  4. Keep your notes glanceable
