Advice for Paperless Believers: Process & Apps to Catch Your Ideas On The Fly and Never Let Them Go

Nov 10, 2020

IMPORTANT ADVICE: there aren’t any affiliate marketing links, and I don’t receive anything at all from companies I mention in this article.

I’ve been a paperless guy for more than a decade.

One of the best features and advantages you can take being paperless is the quick data entry. It means the way you insert any new entry into your system.

When I say your system, I mean yourself. I don’t make any difference between my physical self (my body and mind), and my digital self (my second brain), because, fortunately, they’re both connected.

My opinion is that digital information is much better than non-digital, but we are all uniques, and the main point is about not losing anything interesting that comes to your mind.

My old system: Drafts

For me, it’s like a giant bucket that can eat anything you throw in it.

My new system: Notion

1. Productivity advantages

A 24/7 operative system

Ideas come to your mind and disappear in milliseconds. You don’t know when that’s going to happen.

When an idea emerges, that’s the moment to take care of it. You just wait 3 seconds, and it’s gone.

Real work

The One and only entry point

Your brain knows perfectly what to do when something pop ups.

2. Security advantages

This security and control sensation will give you peace of mind, which also translates into higher performance.
