6 Reasons Why Your PKM Should Be a Fun Thing

2 min read

You don’t want a boring life. You want to have fun.

Your PKM can give it to you.

What is PKM?

If we visit Wikipedia, we get an excellent definition of PKM (Personal Knowledge Management).

“PKM is a process of collecting information that a person uses to gather, classify, store, search, retrieve and share knowledge in their daily activities, and the way in which these processes support work activities.”

PKM Focuses on 2 Main Processes

So, PKM focuses on 2 processes:

  1. Gathering information and processing it.
  2. Using it to support your work.

If you think about it for a moment, that’s exactly what your life is.

You get information, and you use it “to survive”.

With that approach, shouldn’t your life be fun?

That’s why your PKM should be it too.

Why Your PKM Should Be Fun?

If you work towards making your PKM a fun thing, you get all these benefits:

1. It’ll become part of your life.

It’s something that will come out naturally, like any other thing that has become part of your life: brushing your teeth, having lunch, sleeping.

2. Consistency.

When you’re having fun, you don’t want to stop. You want to keep enjoying it. That’s what will drive you towards consistency, making it possible to use your PKM daily. And that’s key!

3. Your “journey” will be fun.

If you use something that’s fun on a daily basis, your own journey, your life, becomes a fun thing.

4. Fun equals relaxation.

When you’re having fun, you achieve a state of peace of mind, unstressed, the state we’re all looking for in our lives.

5. You open your mind.

When you’re in “fun mode”, you open your mind, and that’s how you grow and evolve.

6. To avoid a boring life.

Fun is precisely the opposite of boring. Nobody wants a boring life. Life is to enjoy it, to make the best out of it.


  • If you begin to enjoy managing data, you’ll want to use your PKM daily.
  • Human beings love having fun because you get from it all the benefits you’re aiming for: relaxation, control, security, growth, fulfillment, happiness.
  • In two words: an easy and fantastic life.
