Who needs a long intro anyway?

Here are the 3 ways:

  1. Habit Tracker
  2. Note-taking System
  3. Journal

Habit Tracker

Ever tried building a habit but got inconsistent?

Use a habit tracker

  1. Create a table
  2. Turn properties into checklists
  3. Make each row a new day

Note-Taking System

Have important information to remember?

But you keep forgetting?

Use Notion as an all-in-one note-taking system

  1. Create a list/gallery view
  2. Label each item by a topic
  3. Take notes in their appropriate category


Are you anxious and need a place to let all your thoughts down?

Use Notion to save them.

  1. Create a list
  2. Make a template for your journal prompts
  3. Journal every morning/night

And that’s all! Using these 3 tools, you’ll be more consistent, more focused and more organized with everything you’ve learned.

And if you want to start right away…

I made a Second Brain Notion template (using all 3 tools) that I use everyday.
