I just published an article called “Tools for Action”, on the subject of my recent work.
The main question that the article dives into is:
What if users were given a tool to organize their thoughts and actions with the same specificity as a tool for thought that lets them organize their notes?
I wanted to create this topic to further dive into the topic. For the past 2.5 years, I have been researching and developing tools for action and have been heavily inspired by tools for thought, chiefly Roam Research. I believe there is an opportunity to encapsulate the entire workflow of thinking, consuming, and creating(across multiple apps) in one stream of activity. I am currently working on a few tools for action built on Roam, so I can give people practical examples of the concepts I’ve been mentioning. The first one should be released by the end of this week.
Look forward to continuing the conversation and hearing what others have to say on this subject!
