At the end of the last year, I met an amazing online English teacher, from whom I first know excel could be a powerful tool to organize your knowledge. I am good at self-learning as well as bad at organizing what I learned to applications. Most of the time, I trust my memory and collect everything in mind. Before I started teamwork, it's sufficient for me.
About half a year ago, sharing knowledge in the team became part of my duty. At first a few weeks, I didn't do quite well, because thousands of words and hundreds of resources just flow out of mind without control. Maybe I am too used to learning and working alone that I don't know how fast I think, how many materials I could mention and how a mess sharing in this way. So organization in sheet occurred to my mind.
Then I start to use google sheet. There are about twenty google sheets saved in my google drive in different purposes and filled in various contents. But none was continued over a week. The main reason is that there are multi-media materials I need to collect, organize and share, though I could insert links, still inconvenient. I want something to FORCE me to reorganize while learning in joy, FORCE me to seek the relationship between them, a pattern I would benefit from it.
Experiments never end. Thanks for @efran's coda video, I start to use coda, each section in my coda doc is SHEET. Sheet, sheet, sheet.
Before a project, deconstructing the new problem into sub sheets is the first productive step. During the process, new sheets are created, filled and reorganized in handy. It seems that a big problem was turned into a relational database and could be solved step by step.
