For many users, Notion can seem daunting and complex, especially when trying to find the best way to keep track of their day-to-day tasks. Not knowing how to navigate Notion can be a significant pain point for users, as it can be difficult to find the right information or to set up their own command center according to their needs.
This is especially true for those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), who can benefit from a streamlined system to keep them organized and on task.
Lack of guidance
Notion is a flexible tool, and while this can be an advantage, it can also be a disadvantage for new users who don't know where to start or how to use it effectively. This can make it difficult for users to achieve their desired outcomes.
Without clear objectives, it can be hard to understand how to use Notion to its full potential. Many users may not know what they want to achieve with Notion, making it difficult to use it effectively.
Lack of time
Learning a new tool like Notion requires time and effort, and some users may find it difficult to dedicate enough time to learn Notion and integrate it into their workflow.
Difficulty in customizing Notion:
Notion is a highly customizable tool, but this can also be a disadvantage for users who may find it challenging to customize the app according to their needs. This can make it difficult for users to use Notion effectively and may result in confusion or frustration.
If you have ADHD or struggle with organization, you know how frustrating it can be to try and find a productivity system that works for you. I tried using apps like Trello, Airtable, and Asana, but I always felt like something was missing. I even watched countless YouTube videos, hoping to find a solution that would finally stick. But no matter how many videos I watched or apps I tried, nothing seemed to work.
It wasn't until I discovered Notion that everything finally clicked into place. Notion's customizable interface allowed me to create a productivity system that catered specifically to my needs, and the ability to link everything together in one place meant I no longer had to switch between different apps and systems. With Notion, I finally felt in control of my work and my ADHD, and it made all the difference.
Notion is the first platform that made sense with my ADHD brain
After months of trial and error, I finally felt like I had conquered the platform.
As an educator and marketing expert, I understand the importance of finding the right tools and systems to help people succeed. That's why I created my Notion Foundations course, to help other ADHDers like me finally find the system that works for them. I know firsthand how frustrating it can be to constantly search for a solution, and I want to make it easier for others to find success with Notion.
By taking my course, you'll learn the ins and outs of Notion, as well as tips and tricks for creating a customized system that works for your unique needs.
So I my mind is blown. I feel like I know things and then I realized that I really don't. Jenna Redfield is by far the utmost resource, and it has the expertise in our community
