Ready to Track & Reflect on 2021?

Perhaps you're like us & often think that you should give the whole "daily journaling" thing a try. But most templates either cost more than you're interested in paying for or are simply too complicated to keep up with more than a few days. We get it!

Here's where we come in! We've created a new #NotionForAcademics template for you to help you track & reflect on each day of 2021 with three simple daily entries in a free Notion template. And the cost? It's FREE! 

Get the 2021 Tracking Template & receive our #NotionForAcademics Productivity Tips Newsletter by filling out this brief form.
