      Wow. This threw me for a loop. I never thought a debate about taking notes would make me reflect so deeply.

      Upon reading this, I realize that I was an "essentialist" before COVID19 but am now more of a "pragmatist". And at the risk of sounding hyperbolic, I truly believe this development is changing my life for the better.

      I'd be interested in finding out if others have experienced something similar.

      The paywall is sad though. Never saw such a long article teaser.

        I know! I was upset by that; haha I should have given a warning. My bad!
