🧠How to get started with Obsibrain?

Getting Started with Obsibrain

Let's dive in and explore how to get started with this comprehensive productivity template.

Note: Configuring Obsibrain the Way You Want

While the Obsibrain template is designed to be a comprehensive productivity solution, we understand that everyone has unique preferences and workflows.

If you need to tweak or customize any aspect of the template, you can easily do so by navigating to the settings.

To access the Obsibrain settings, simply go to Settings > Obsibrain.

Here, you'll find various options to personalize the template, such as adjusting the base folder structure or configuring other preferences to align with your needs. Feel free to explore these settings and make Obsibrain your own.

When you first open the Obsibrain vault, you'll be greeted with a clean and organized interface. The left-hand sidebar displays the core folders that use the P.A.R.A Folder Structure:

  1. 0-plan: This is your central planning area, where you can map out your long-terms goals and have access to periodic reviews to journal and keep track of what's happening in your life.

  2. 1-projects: Here, you'll manage your active projects and your attached tasks.

  3. 2-areas: This section is for organizing your various areas of responsibility and focus.

  4. 3-resources: This section is for topics or themes of ongoing interest.

  5. 4-archives: Use this section to archive completed projects and other unused notes.

  6. 5-notes: This is your general note-taking area, where all your ideas and thoughts are stored.

  7. assets: The assets folder contains all your uploaded images + the scripts and templates folders.

    1. scripts: This folder houses the custom scripts and automations that power various Obsibrain features.

    2. templates: Here, you'll find pre-built templates for things like goal setting, periodic reviews, and other productivity workflows.

Take some time to explore these different sections and familiarize yourself with the overall structure of the Obsibrain vault.
