This lesson walks you through the process of creating a Daily Agenda in Notion, complete with step-by-step tutorials and training videos.

This lesson guides you through the process of identifying your current projects. You will build a simple Project database to organize and track your projects in Notion and will begin to add tasks.
Module 4: Capture
This lesson explains how Notion can be used as the digital “home” for nearly all the content you interact with digitally on a daily basis. You’ll create three additional databases to capture and organize digital and print materials, academic articles, and notes.
Module 5: Weekly Agenda
In this lesson, you’ll pull the components of your Notion system together with a Weekly Agenda that connects to your projects, tasks, databases, and offers the opportunity for weekly reflection.
Module 6: YouHQ
In the final lesson, you’ll build your YouHQ (“You” is replaced with your name 😄 ) Dashboard. This dashboard provides you with quick access to all the elements of your new Notion system.
