Boost Your Productivity in 2021, get a Notion 😎

I recently discovered the Notion App this week, and it's honestly been the best thing in 2021 so far! For those who don't know what Notion is, here's the Wikipedia definition:
Notion is an application that provides components such as databases, kanban boards, wikis, calendars, and reminders. Users can connect these components to create their own systems for knowledge management, note-taking, data management, project management, among others. These components and systems can be used individually, or in collaboration with others.

that sounds good

Here are the main things you need to know about Notion:

It works like any other text editor.

It's features are built-in.

  • You can access features easily by starting your line with the following character: /.
  • You'll get access to numerous 'block' options where you will be able to add in tables, calendars, kanboards, you name it, in order to customize your page to your liking.

Start with a Template

My recommendation would be to get started with a template, when you're just learning how to navigate through Notion. Explore options, play around with the interface. Once you're comfortable, start a page of your own or make your own custom template!

free templates here, here and here

You can also use one of the many build-in templates that come with Notion.
