Burn my notes

i make a lot of notes and meticulously catalogue them so they can be burnt when I kick the bucket.

I showed my wife my elaborate note taking system, with all of its hacks and affordances for knowledge creation.

“So, what do you think?” I asked her.

“What should I do with it when you’re dead?” She asked me back.

If I look past that bit about my mortality, it was a good question. It puts things in perspective. These aren’t Einstein’s notes.

“Burn it.”
