What is Notion?

Simply put, Notion is a workspace for everything. 

It's the place where you can organize your thoughts, access your team, and plan out every aspect of your life - all in one place.

Notion is a super powerful workspace and a central hub that is literally changing and overrunning a ton of productivity tools.

The fact that it has a built-in database capability makes tracking things over time a breeze, and it has a thriving community that shares some of its best creative workspaces with the world.

There are no limits to what you can do with Notion.

How do I start with a Notion Template?

Getting started with Notion is both free and easy.

First sign up for a free account, either by logging in with your Google account, Apple account, or with the plain old email + password method.

Next, choose a Notion template that you would like to use in this blog post, and open it up.

Once open, click duplicate on the top right corner of the screen, and you’re all set!

How I use this Notion template to skyrocket my productivity

Below I’ve linked to the template I use to solve any type of procrastination issues. This template alone will literally 10x your productivity using things like advanced cognitive reframing.

The template is created by Andrew Kirby, a 500k+ YouTuber.

Once you’ve duplicated the Notion template, the most useful tools will be the procrastination log and the cognitive restructuring. 

Just follow the guidelines and let the magic happen. Check this out for more in-depth information on how to use this tool.

Notion Templates: Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Eisenhower Matrix?


The Eisenhower Matrix sounds like some futuristic cool experiment that is very unknown.

But it’s actually a very simple yet powerful decision-making tool to prioritize what tasks that you should actually do to progress towards your goals.

You run your tasks through the quadrant of boxes and see where it fits in depending on if it’s urgent or important.

  1. If it’s both urgent and important, you do the task immediately.

  2. If it’s urgent but not so important, have someone else do it for you.

  3. If it’s not urgent but still important, schedule it for later.

  4. If it’s neither urgent nor important, just delete it altogether.

Wrap Up

On the surface, Notion looks just like any other note-taking app so you might not give it a second thought.

But the power behind what this little software is capable of is immense, and the upsides limitless!
