The Gestalt's Garden

Put the myth of the collaborative genius into practice

| 233 words

A few weeks ago, I wrote an post about a new space in the Gestalt’s Garden: informal talks.

So far, it has exceeded my initial expectations: I have already had the pleasure of chatting with two people who—even though they are neither family nor friends—read what I write! :^)

I think these talks are a good way to put the myth of the collaborative genius into practice. In fact, they made me a recommendation that I’m loving: the book “The Bullet Journal Method” by Ryder Carroll. I had always seen the Bullet Journal method as an efficient way to manage tasks with a journal. That is true, but it is a very limited view of the method. The goal of the Bullet Journal method is:

It’s a recommendation that couldn’t have come at a better time in my life.

In fact, this book is itself a result of the myth of the collaborative genius. On the one hand, Carroll compiles and explains advice—which already exists from different philosophies and methodologies—to attack these objectives. On the other hand, the method that Carroll proposes (the entire workflow with the journal) has been the result of collaborating with his community.

In other words, Ryder Carroll is a collaborative genius.

And now, thanks to his book, I can benefit from his work :-)
