I realize there are methods like the bullet journal's that address this, but they've felt clumsy to me. All the ones I've tried don't even come close. Standard Notes is a valuable note taking app alternative for individuals concerned with privacy and security matters with a strip down user experience that feels overall more lacking than simple, though, and both design choices and a business model/marketing strategy that generate some concerns from a customer point of view.
