I've been raving about Notion for the past few months. My very persistent friend Grant convinced me that I needed to give it a chance. I'm so glad I did.

Notion's official tagline reads: Write, plan, & get organized in one place. People who write things on the Internet like to describe Notion as a mash-up of Google Docs, Evernote, Trello, and Todoist. This is accurate.

What they don't mention in the tagline (maybe they should!) is that Notion is also super fun to use - once you get the hang of it. There's a bit of learning curve, but after I watched a few quick Notion 101 videos, I was good to go.

Content is created in blocks and those blocks can be whatever you want them to be: text, image, checklist, bullet points, embedded code. Everything is so fluid.

As you'll see below, I also customize every page with a unique icon and header image. I use the icons to quickly scan my workspace and find what I need. And the header images just make the whole experience more pleasant. I like to like the environments in which I spend a bunch of time.

I've moved almost every aspect of my life into Notion. Being able to do - and organize - everything in one place has been a productivity game-changer for me. I never have to leave Notion. It has eliminated so many of the distractions I'd come across when transitioning from app to app.
