To Use 🔧🔎
Maybe reading isn't your thing. Maybe you're more of a writer. Or maybe you've read so much that you now want to distill the lessons learned somewhere.
I've been using the minimalist online journal app, Reflection, since September 2021, and I absolutely love it. It introduced me to Holstee, which is a wonderful, intentional company that I've mentioned before.
I use Reflection because I wanted a tool that would just focus on the writing. I didn't want distractions. I didn't want fancy features. I wanted a simple experience that could allow me to journal each day in a minimalist way and tag my posts for later reference.
The more I used this tool, the more I realized that the simple features are actually deceiving--they are actually quite powerful and a lot of thought was put into them. They also have a monthly and annual review feature that finally got me to stick with a monthly-review habit.
Taking Action with Your To-Do's
But Jordan, what do I do to get stuff done?
Once again, I settled on something minimalist.
I love Todoist for tracking my tasks because it's so simple and I can use it where, whether I'm at my computer or on my phone. Their apps are seamless and so easy to use.
My final tool is for the visual folks out there.
I constantly need to remind myself to share visual resources because I'm not a visual person at all. I can't see images in my mind's eye, and I think it's one of the big reasons I've never been drawn to decorating houses / rooms. I could basically live in a work in a drab jail cell of a room and be fine...
But...there is something incredible about Notion.
The tool is all the rage in the tech community, and you will see why. It makes it so easy to organize literally anything in a visual way. With simple text commands and a drag-and-drop interface, Notion could serve as a journal or as a knowledge base.
Check it out, and build something amazing.
