Notion P.A.R.A. Method 2 Simplify, Organize, and Master Your Digital Life

Unlock a powerful Notion system that centralizes your goals, projects, tasks, notes, and everything in between.

Building upon Tiago Forte's PARA method, we've expanded its principles to offer a comprehensive productivity and knowledge management system

The Simple System for Organizing Your Digital Life in Seconds. A system that told you exactly where to put every piece of information in your life – every document, file, note, agenda, outline, and bit of research – and exactly where to find it when you needed it.

Build your second brain in Notion with this Notion P.A.R.A. Method template.

Tiago Forte’s mega-popular Building a Second Brain course and book teaches you how to organize your life in a digital “second brain” using four lists: Projects, Areas, Resources, and Archives.

This template brings those four lists seamlessly into your Notion workspace:

  • Dark mode - Notion P.A.R.A. Method template
  • Light mode - Notion P.A.R.A. Method template
  • Training documentation for using P.A.R.A. Methodology. Includes videos

Core to his method is P.A.R.A. – a system for organizing information into Projects, Areas, Resources, and Archive. This template brings the power of the P.A.R.A. Method to Notion.

Tiago Forte’s PARA Method is designed to work within any tool. It comprises four folders:

  • 📂 Project
  • 📥 Area
  • ⚙️ Resource
  • 🗃️ Archive

Since Notion allows us to create interconnected databases, we can create a more useful PARA structure.

📂 Projects: Capture and manage individual initiatives with clear goals and deadlines.

📥 Areas: Track your ongoing responsibilities or domains of your life that need consistent attention.

⚙️ Resources: Organize information, references, courses, or any other materials that feed into your projects or areas.

🗃️ Archives: Store projects or information that aren't active but might be useful for future reference.

📋 Capture Table: A quick "dumping ground" for ideas, tasks, or notes to be processed later, ensuring nothing gets missed.

🌅 My day page is there to help you see which areas are you working on right now. Also, it will help you see the priority project and the tasks that are in your 'Now' list, as well as your favorite notes.

Inbox, Quick actions, and Task Manager, these pages are all about task tracking and you not forgetting to to anything.

🎯 Project & Goal planner will help you plan out your goals and based on your goals, you can plan projects accordingly.

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