I am writing this blog just because I think notion helped me a lot in organising my life as second brain and this article is not affiliated with Notion and I am not making any money if you choose to sign up with Notion.
What is Notion?
Notion is an application that provides components such as notes, 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.
There are a lot more tutorial videos on YouTube teaching you how to use it in different use cases.
Switching from Trello to Notion
I am a procrastinator and ever since I learn about Kanban board at my current job, I have been using Trello to remember things and keep track of my daily task.
However, Trello is very limited you want to take notes, build a dashboard or customising the way it presents the information.
One day I came across Notion on a tech blog and decided to give it a try, it turns out to be pretty good especially with its integration with a lot of online services (Google, Figma, Slack, Jira etc.) and it gives you more freedom to build a lot of things in its platform.
