The Ultimate Calendar Solution

I've had a glorious few days of getting my house in order ("house" in the broadest possible sense). I felt cluttered and needed to dedicate some time to life maintenance - can you relate?

Part of that has been refining how I manage tasks and calendar events.

Enter Morgen...

I've mentioned Morgen several times in Notes by Martine as it's such an interesting, potentially life-enhancing tool. I've been using it for over a month, so it felt like a good time to share my honest review with you (see below).

Spoiler alert: it's brilliant and now a permanent part of my day-to-day life.

If you want to try Morgen, there's a referral link and discount code in my review article  - I'd be delighted if you used them.

Tweet of the Week

This week's Tweet of the Week is from Ev Chapman of Tana Academy. While the demonstration shows how to do a startup and shutdown routine in Tana, you can apply the process to any note-taking tool. For example, I am experimenting with similar routines in Reflect.

That's a Wrap

As always, thanks for reading.
