What Is The Notion Application?

Everyone wants to be more productive and stop procrastinating.   Is Notion the application that will finally kick start your productivity?  

Will the Notion Application Be the Kick Start You need?

About six months ago, I started trying to be more productive. I wanted to find software that could help in this endeavor.  I was watching a YouTuber that specializes in productivity. He mentioned the application called Notion.   Now the application claims to be an all in one workspace where you can write, plan, collaborate, and organized. This application will let you take notes, add tasks, manage projects, and more.

Building Blocks

Notion allows you to use building blocks to create your own layouts and toolkit to get work done.  Many individuals call Notion an “internal wiki” because it allows teams and individuals to plan their projects, works, and goals.  Here is a snapshot from my Business Home Page that I created. Next, I will discuss the workspace.

The Workspace

The workspace is clean and beautiful.  You can build your own personal wiki with endless layers of content.  There are multiple ways you can view the workspace.  You can use a calendar, a checkbox, a simple list, or a database view.  It is easy to capture your workflow and record everything creating spreadsheets and databases.  Best of the platform works across all platforms, including Android, IOS, MAC, Windows, and Web.

Best Notion Feature

The best feature is team functionality for real-time collaboration and the ability to share, comment, assign tasks, and set reminders.  I do not presently use the team function, but I can easily adapt to my database.

Here is a snapshot of my Podcast and Video production database.

How Does Notion Work?

According to Notion, the application is “The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.” Many people call it a mixture of Google Docs, Evernote, Trello, and Todolist.  Being able to do all these things using only one application is a dream come true for me.

Building Blocks

Notion uses blocks.  These blocks can be whatever you want; text, image, checklist, bullet points, code, you name it.  You can easily write a sentence and then transform it into a stand-alone page or an entire database.  The possibilities are almost endless.

If you are unsure what I am talking about, go over to their homepage, and test drives it yourself.  There is no subscription required to sign up, and it has a demo page to get you started.

The application allows each user to create their content unique to their specifications.  Also, there are Notion templates that you can use free of charge.  Best of all, there are free courses out there that will teach you how to use Notion.

Notion Application has been beneficial in keeping my Podcast and YouTube Channel up to date.  As much as I like Notion, next week, I will talk about the 5 Flaws that Notion has.  So be sure to subscribe to stay up to date on the latest content.
