Playing with notes instead of using them

I've noticed that the most significant disadvantage of digital note-taking tools is that I'm continuously playing with my notes rather than using them. On paper, notes are immutable and there's nowhere for them to go and nothing clever left to be done with them except read them and learn from them. This is decidedly better than spending that time learning the latest "PKM" app or "TfT".
