🎶 songs to notion to, notion fitness inspo + notion is basically harry potter
By Frances Odera Matthews  • Issue #10 • View online
Hi hi! 

It’s Q4 baby (screams internally). If you’re north of the equator, that also means cooler temperatures, darker nights and lots of blankets. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to be inside. My post-panini summer has been back-to-back-to-back with social events to the point where I’m looking forward to entering ‘founder-hibernation-build-mode’ (iykyk) and doing mostly nothing this winter.
In prep for my hygge-era I’m transitioning away from my afrobeats–disco-bussitdown playlists for slower, soul-filled beatz. The result… I’m getting… a lot of work done. I’ve put my favourite tracks in a playlist I like to call ‘songs to notion to’ that I’ve been playing in the background of my Notion coaching calls and while I do client builds.

It’s mostly vibey nu-soul tracks which instantly lower your anxiety levels but with a little bounce thrown in to push you though a marathon session of deep work. I’m personally obsessed and have been receiving so many compliments on calls.
Just imagine Notioning in a coffee shop listening to these tunes, bliss.
ALSO, I’m still reeling over this tweet.
It deserved a special shout out from the usual Tweet Wall you get at the bottom of this newsletter (keep scrolling boo). Honestly, the more I think about it, the more I can’t unsee it. Next time someone tries to tell me Notion is a productivity tool I’m going to send them to this tweet! Notion is a possibility tool, not a productivity tool 🪄

Everyone keeps chatting about how 'that Leo graph' was a waste of time

So I wasted 24 more minutes in @NotionHQ pulling even more stats about how Leonardo DiCaprio refuses to date a woman over 25
