Feeling a little overwhelmed by Notion? Don't worry you're not alone! This post will help you with the things you need to have - and nothing else!
Stop. Right now.
There are hundreds of videos/ YouTube channels sharing how you can use Notion. It shares the tips the tricks the formulas the relations the real snazzy stuff you don’t understand but think omg if I use that one amazing feature it will be complete.
Don’t just copy something blindly. Use it, mould it. Change it.
There are a huge variety of templates you can use, that helps you build a Notion Setup that works for you. But they are just the starting point.
Don’t rely on Notion templates by any Notion Consultant & Pro - yeah even mine!
Before you try and decide what template to buy or create get clear on a number of things:
Describe the overall purpose of your Notion system don't just rely on guess work. I sorta want it to look like this...
If you don't have a system purpose, you'll end up with a bloated system that can overwhelm and frustrate you.
We all want to use a new shiny toy and Notion is the shiniest and the great folks at Notion release many new features whilst updating the older ones it's fantastic but also a huge distraction and time sync.
Repeat after me:
I do not need to use all the features inside of Notion to utilize it's power
You need to be clear on your needs, and why you're creating what you're creating. It all must link back to the purpose of your system.
Notion is powerful. It's features are rich, and it's potential is vast. This can be a freaking problem. You will end up diving into procrasti-planning hell! You'll constantly be adding "more things" and end up forgetting why you started in the first place.
You need to think about why you came to Notion in the first place. What was stopping you in your tracks in your business/life.
What features of other Notion users do you like and more importantly - is this a problem you struggle with.
If you don't struggle with it. Don't use it.
Note: You won't get it right first time. This is okay. This is normal. You WILL change your system. But you must have a REASON.
