  • 🗃️ Archive

This template includes an explanation of PARA methodology, videos and additional resources inspired by Tiago Forte's methodology.

Each folder holds information with a different level of actionability. But we can make PARA even more flexible and powerful within Notion. Since Notion allows us to create interconnected databases, we can create a more useful PARA structure.
