24 ratings

Organize your work & life in ONE place AND get things done without the chaos

  • Capture everything
  • Organize your resources
  • Execute effectively

Introducing Second Mind—the ultimate knowledge management system optimized for focus and action, designed for digital workers, creatives, and entrepreneurs. This comprehensive Notion template offers an intuitive and efficient system to capture, organize, process, and execute on all of your valuable resources.

Philosophy behind Second Mind

I believe that knowledge is power, and the ability to organize and use that knowledge is the key to success. That's why I've created a system based on Tiago Forte's PARA model, which focuses on capturing everything, organizing your resources, processing your information for greater usability, and making progress on your goals.

Further, I believe that knowledge is futile if it's not used. That's why this system is optimized for focus and action with GTD-style task management, goals, projects, resources, as well as deep work, habit, and workout tracking all "hidden" behind toggles to help you avoid distractions and stay on track with your work.

Why I created Second Mind

I am a product manager (5 yrs. of experience) turned solopreneur & consultant.

As a product manager, I was drowning in a sea of information, scattered notes, and lost tasks. I felt overwhelmed and disorganized.
As a solopreneur, I needed a way to capture, organize, and process everything I knew and learned about and transform it into unique content, products, and services.

With Second Mind, I was able to take control of my tasks, knowledge, and resources and turn them into actionable insights and assets.

Because I had ONE place for EVERYTHING, I could reduce my work time & stress, while increasing the results I was delivering—shipped products, completed projects, written articles, etc.

Who is this system for

Second Mind is a template for digital workers, creatives, entrepreneurs, and anyone who needs to manage large volumes of information and turn them into actionable insights and results.

It's particularly beneficial for professionals who manage multiple projects and need to keep track of their progress, as well as students, academics, and researchers. Whether you're planning a trip or learning a new skill, Second Mind can help you slay information overload and achieve your goals.

Benefits & Features

Our resources are things to use, not just things to collect. — Tiago Forte
