How To Run Your Life Inside of Notion

Marie Poulin gives a tour through the most impressive Notion setup I've ever seen

Quick note: do you want the templates Marie mentions in this post? You can find them here.

Marie Poulin’s Notion is a mirror.

Drop into any piece of her system, and you can see her life reflected as a series of linked database entries. She has a Daily Journal which links to her Quarterly Goals. She has a Quarterly Goals database which links to her Yearly Vision. She has a Yearly Vision which links to notes on books she’s read and projects she’s completed.

As each aspect of her life changes and evolves her Notion shapeshifts to display it.
