Notes and Notion


If you haven’t picked up on this by now, I geek out on apps and productivity tools.  I try out a lot of them and usually abandon most within a few days or even minutes.  But every once in a while I find one that quickly and easily becomes ingrained in my workflow.

The most recent of these is Notion.

I’m obsessed and I don’t know how I ever functioned without it.

I use it for all my note-taking, qualitative knowledge storage, and I’m dabbling with it as my to-do list.

Previously I was using a combination of Evernote + Airtable + Disparate Word docs + a written to-do list for everything I’m now doing in Notion.

If you use Airtable, Notion has a lot of similarities in the sense that it is a zero-code solution that you can customize to do just about anything.  It has interesting database functionality, great organizational structures built-in, off the shelf templates, and a lot of collaboration features.

But I find Notion to be better suited for note-taking and quickly serving up qualitative information, while Airtable suits me better as a data repository, relational database, and project management tool. 

If you are looking for a better note-taking solution or personal / corporate wiki type thing, I highly recommend trying out Notion.

Have a great weekend everyone!
