Happy Friday! I want to move things in a slightly different direction with the newsletter, if I may. I enjoy sharing things to think about as a creative person, but you’ll find lots of that on my daily podcast (this week has had some corkers, if I do say so myself).
Here though, I’d like to get a bit more hands-on, and share something that’ll either give you back a few minutes, or help you go 1% further. And hopefully something you can implement on a lunch break.
Today’s tip is an example of something that’ll help you go 1% further, but is likely not something you’d take the time to do because you’ve got so much on. But this couldn’t be easier, and it’ll lift your mood when you need it.
This week on the pod, I shared the importance of keeping track of compliments you receive for your work. It’s key to motivation, you can use it in your marketing, and like I said, it just feels good.
Here’s how to do it.
If you’re new to Notion, you can create an account for free and start using it to track all of the aspects of your creative work. It combines tools like Trello, Google Docs, ChatGPT and loads more. And chances are I’ll be sharing lots of Notion tips in the future. They have a super-affordable paid option but their free tier is generous in the features it gives you.
If you’re sold on the idea of creating a complements file, don’t waste time recreating the database yourself – use my template.
And that, my friend, is that. Enjoy your weekend!
