Visualizing Self Discovery

Linking and Tagging Emotions in Your Second Brain

"Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." - Carl Jung

Acknowledging and integrating emotions in a tool like TheBrain can greatly enhance the value and effectiveness of your personal knowledge management system. By capturing emotions, your Second Brain evolves beyond a repository of projects to a dynamic map of your cognitive and emotional landscape, providing deeper insights and an enriched understanding of your life.

This webinar will cover:

  • Emotional tagging and thought types
  • Capturing life's high points as they happen
  • Adding anecdotal notes, the juicy stuff
  • People-focused thoughts and notes
  • The importance of passion project collection
  • Cultivating mood-focused sections
  • Visual emotional cues and aesthetics
