More about this course

Roam Research is the new kid on the note-taking block but has quickly become my favorite tool for collecting and processing information.

Unfortunately, Roam has a steep learning curve and it's not easy to navigate at first.

In this class, I will teach you all the basics you need to know to make the most of Roam Research:

  • Understanding the Daily Note and what to do with it
  • Nesting Blocks so you create hierarchies of information
  • The 3 Sidebars (left, right, and top) and what to do with each one
  • Formatting text such as bolding, highlighting, and creating headers to organize your notes
  • Key Commands in Roam and the ones you should memorize to be more productive
  • How to Create a New Page (I'll show you 3 different ways to do this)
  • Linking Notes so you can start building your creativity inbox
  • Using Roam as a task manager so nothing falls through the cracks when it comes to your to-dosTasks
  • How to Reference Blocks

In less than 1 hour, you'll go from someone who never used Roam Research before to having the foundations you need to use Roam in your day-to-day.

By acquiring this skill, you'll be able to use Roam for so many use cases, such as morning pages, journaling, creating a personal CRM, using it as a Zettelkasten, and so much more.

But you can only build those if you know the basic skills.

And that's exactly what this class will teach you.

See you at the class!
