I love Obsidian, I love that it can be anything you want it to be. For a while I tried to make it everything but recently I realised that 60+ plugins to do everything possible was basically Obsidian abuse. I have now realised that Obsidian does one thing brilliantly. It handles knowledge. So now I am using it as my complete second brain. I am using plugins like banners and call out manager to make it look pretty, I need that. I am using Templater and Dataview because hello, why wouldn't you and I am using the Tasks plugin with all the optional statuses so they show things like bookmarks and alerts. Also for knowledge based tasks, it I need to research this subject etc. I am moving the rest of my standard tasks back out into a tool that was designed for that very purpose, because it makes sense to do so.
My second brain. The back-linking of notes and the graph view of how all your notes are connected are akin to science fiction but life has been known to be stranger than fiction anyway. Obsidian, killed my 10 year+ relationship with Evernote in 30 minutes.
