Use Zettelkasten for personal reflection
I maintain my private Zettelkasten notes predominantly for self-reflection purposes (see).
Every day, I contemplate on the recent life events. I create notes for any new observations/ insights. Then I’ll establish links to them in the Zettelkasten, as well as updating folgezettel branching if any.
During the linking process, I sometimes end up “surprisingly” linking two otherwise disparate notions together. This might give rise to a new concept, or I might just merge them together.
