Knowledge Work Should Accrete

Many activities in Knowledge work seem to be ephemeral efforts, their outputs mostly discarded after they’re completed [...] We should strive to design practices systems which yield compounding returns on our efforts as they accumulate over time.

Andy Matuschack note

But most importantly, without a permanent reservoir of ideas, you will not be able to develop any major ideas over a longer period of time because you are restricting yourself either to the length of a single project or the capacity of your memory. Exceptional ideas need much more than that.
