With the rise of PKM tools comes an interesting dilemma. If set up well, your PKM can house all the information you need to know about a project that you have committed to completing. However, what happens when you need to access the files that correspond to that project?
Let’s look at a simple screencast as an example. I can have a note about the screencast with an outline, a checklist for what is to be done, and even snippets from the screencast itself. But I can’t work on the screencast itself from inside that note. Nor do I want to. I would rather use tools that are better for that task.
So we need a way to store files about the project as well as the note for the project. And if we’re going to do that, it only makes sense to be able to jump to those files (and back to our notes) easily and without a bunch of clicking around.
This is precisely why I wrote this Alfred Workflow.
