PTPL 059: Analog-Inspired Task Management in Obsidian—Does Your System Fit Your Needs?
PLUS Markdown flashcards that work in both Obsidian and Mochi
Welcome to a once-a-week taster of things that I’ve found helpful in my quest to create a simple, future proof, digital-analog workflow.

Whether or not you use a dedicated task manager, does your system embrace the spirit of this approach? Is the way you are currently handling tasks either more, or less complex than your needs require?
