comment Alternative methods of tagging to organize thoughts?
I have a little background in UNIX/VI, and am reading and checking into org-mode. Thanks for not taking me down the rabbit hole in this question, but it looks like I'll need to at least poke my head in. Looks promising. :)

comment Alternative methods of tagging to organize thoughts?
Good questions. The information is all for one "project", and contains all kinds of organizational information. Eventually a to-do list will be needed after everything is compiled and sorted, so perhaps Emacs Org-Mode would work. The goal is to end up with a working document that is a cross between a design and reference document. I think this is in the realm of project management, but I don't have a background. I was thinking that tagging things in a more organized way would help sort the data make it easier to reference as goals and action items are formulated.

comment Any examples of diaries of successfull people?
Leonardo Da Vinci? Journalling in the loose sense of the word, is just a process of recording thoughts, ideas and events and don't necessarily have to take the traditional format (ex- Dear Journal, Today I tried...).

comment How do I trigger a dopamine release based on certain stimuli?
I have read in several places lately about the role of dopamine levels and feelings of motivation when just thinking about engaging in activities. Ex- sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/01/130110094415.htm

comment Task management software to organize tasks visually… how would I find it?
I was and am still using Visio. Given the narrative on nodes and the little time I spent playing with Freeplane, I still think this would still be the closest solution to what I am looking for, even if you took Visio out.

comment Task management software to organize tasks visually… how would I find it?
Cloud vs. non-cloud is not important, and no I don't need to access from more than one computer. Windows would be preferable, as that's what I primarily use.

comment Task management software to organize tasks visually… how would I find it?
I predominantly use Windows, but am really just looking for a tool that works well. I have in fact been using Visio (good call), but haven't discovered how the various tiles can have fields/properties other than a label. I'll check into that more, and will definitely try out Freeplane and it's nodes/branches over the next couple days. I know I have tried various mindmapping software, but they all seem to have just a simple single text field that can be copy&pasted into... but not various fields/properties of the objects.

comment Task management software to organize tasks visually… how would I find it?
I'll try this out. I think I will need to be able to move the icons into more visual arrangements than a grid though. For example, one view might be placing some objects onto a timeline, while others stay in groupings.
