# Highlights

Evergreen notes are written and organized to evolve, contribute, and accumulate over time, across projects.

“Better note-taking” misses the point; what matters is “better thinking”.

Write about what you read to internalize texts deeply

# Summary

Evergreen Notes are an approach to Personal Knowledge Management that is focused on understanding and connecting ideas, rather than simply taking notes. It encourages note-takers to write about what they read in order to internalize texts deeply, and focus on better thinking rather than just better note-taking. By linking ideas from different sources together and improving upon them over time, Evergreen Notes make it easier to develop insights and understanding.
