Strangely, I've come to rely over the last year on org-contacts as a lightweight, taggable CRM. However, as the file and C-z notes have grown, performance has really started to drag. I know people have used various schemes (caching) etc to try to improve performance and the like, but updates to

Inserting org-mode heading links the org-refile way

I use ivy and org-refile to process my inbox.org file hyper-efficiently and get things into my GTD system. In a recent discussion on org-roam (which nicely links to files in a nice wiki-like manner) it occurred to me if I had a similar interface to search for headlines in the manner of org-refile
