👋Hi, I'm Aidan Helfant

🧠I have spent 1000+ hours learning to upgrade my thinking using linked notetaking apps like Obsidian.

If you want any of the things below you're in the right place:

  • Do you want to learn how to collect, connect, and create out of the information you consume?
  • Do you want to build a notetaking system that compounds your knowledge across your life?
  • Do you want to learn the best mindsets, methods, and tools for leveling up your notetaking and studying in Obsidian?
  • Do you feel there is an overwhelming amount of information, and you don't know how to organize it all?
  • Do you want to learn better, remember more, and become more creative?
  • Do you struggle to find enjoyment in school learning?
  • Do you want to turn your real life into the most fun game imaginable?

Say yes to anything above? Great! I'm here to help.

🎮How I Went From Addicted Video Gamer To Lover Of Learning

As a kid, I was addicted to video games and YouTube like a fish is addicted to water.

Every day after school, I would sprint to my room faster than Usain Bolt and boot up the computer, sometimes playing for upwards of seven hours a day. However, in college I learned to channel my passion for games into a new real-life game: creating content to help other video gamelearn how to build a PKM system in Obsidian and gamify their real life through the mindsets, tools, and methods I have learned over the past few years.

I write on my blog, post on my YouTube Channel, write an email newsletter called Aidan's Infinite Play, and host a podcast called Personal Knowledge Management with Aidan Helfant.

Instead of looking for them yourself, here are my three most popular articles:

  1. ​5 Simple Levels To Supercharging Your Learning With MOCs In Obsidian​
  2. ​Almost Every Beginner Obsidian User Makes This Mistake
  3. How I Gamified My Obsidian To Make Notemaking More Fun Then Minecraft

I host my working notes from my Obsidian Vault in Aidan Helfant's Digital Garden.

You can also find me on Twitter and if you want to email me, send a note to aidanhelfanthello@gmail.com.
