I don't think the asterisk belongs in the title at all, to be honest with you. It's perfectly fine to have an unknown word or phrase in your project title, as there's the implicit understanding that you'll explain what the word/phrase means within the project itself.

So just write the title normally without the asterisk--

--and then make sure that, somewhere within your project, you explain what the KonMari method is and where it comes from.

  • Thank you so much!!! I used your advice in my project! =)))
