I just installed the Notion App on my phone. It may be "confusion" in the first place, but after checking out some tutorials of the product, I should say that the App is quite powerful. You can pretty much track and manage anything that you can think of to make you more productive on Notion. It is a very flexible and effective tool for task/project management. But I wish there were a tool helping me come up with good goals and milestones in my life. :cccry:

As a person without self-discipline, the first thing I need to do before talking about productivity or how to organize a plan effectively, is to beat procrastination. This is a tool that has really helped me keep making progress and keep my study plan on schedule: Yeolpumta.

Yeolpumta is a timer that keeps track of users’ study time for each subject. But for me, the most important feature of this app is that it allows you to join study groups, and it “visualizes” study groups, showing you who are currently studying in a particular group and how long the group members have been studying that day:


Also, there are daily, weekly, and monthly rankings for each study group and for the same time zone:


If you have a study plan but are a procrastinator like me and peer pressure happens to be working for you, this tool is highly recommended.
