This week we are going to handle the most used notion templates because it covers one of the main topics that we try to find when we are searching for templates: Starter Packs to go from 0 to 100 in our usage of Notion with a set of pre-built components that will help us on the initial days of use of the platform. And this is precisely what this template does: Created by Easlo, this Starter Pack is composed of five (5) components to try to cover most of the usage of your day. These components are the following:
- Habit Tracker
- Subscription Tracker
- Book Tracker
- Note Tracker
- Daily Journal
So, as you can see, these components are very, very useful to pretty much everyone and cover some of the main concerns most users had when they start to use Notion as their digital brain or central of operations as you prefer to call it and cover different perspective: culture with the Book Tracker, Finance with the Subscription Tracker, Productivity with the Note Tracker, Health with the Habit Tracker and Mental Health with the Daily Journal.
