I'VE RESTARTED my daily flow with Notion as part of my Personal Knowledge Management, spurred on by Larry G. Maguire and helped massively by Sarah Brennan's excellent YouTube tutorials. I'm writing this blog post to remind myself I owe RedGregory at least five coffees because of her free templates and excellent online teaching style.
I'm taking time to note what's pulling me back into Notion before rewatching the six videos listed below.
- How to build a second brain in Notion
- Notion for productivity
- Notion Buttons
- Weekly Calendar for Task Planning
- Notion Planner
- Notion Shortcuts
The major reason I'm back into Notion is because several top students have used it to achieve laudable results. I want to boost their upward trajectory by porting most of my academic modules into Notion so they can show me how my Notion content looks inside their Notion workspaces. This will be excellent 360 degree feedback for me as a university lecturer. I've mentioned before that I need to cull my haphazard content from Notion, streamlining the process from capturing content to reusing materials.
Besides feedback from my top students, I've been nudged by Larry G. Maguire to mock up a digital transformation teaching programme we can use with students. I've borrowed a template from Monica Rysavy and that has accelerated my work.
I'm still a daily user of Obsidian, mainly because I like its speed on my handset and its failsafe sync with my desktop. It's relatively straightforward to share content between Obsidian and Notion but I will need to tweak the workflow. I like having back-ups to personal knowledge management but I also need to ensure I can quickly use material I discover from subscriber-only content that drops onto my mobile screens.
I'm impressed to discover that most of my Android apps can easily share content via Notion. All of the apps shown above work together. Office Suite lets me link PDFs from its mobile storage into Notion. And I can embed Netflix videos inside pages on Notion.
