One of the most requested templates I’ve gotten is for a daily dashboard so here. it. IS! At the moment, the Notion calendar views don’t have a great daily view so this is my workaround!
I’ve found that the most effective dashboards balance inspiration, aesthetic and function while keeping it all simple. To do this, I’ve combined features of other useful daily diaries I’ve used – mood tracking, daily goals, simple task managers and timeblocking!
Now, for a little template tour:
On the top: This is where you’ll find the last seven days of your mood tracking. Enter your mood into the page title, select the template that fits your energy (up, down, neutral) and fill in the page with your daily quote, goals and experiences! If you’re a fan of the five minute journal – this is for you!! *side note* definitely check out “The Living Mountain – Nan Shepard” for some poetic inspo.
On the left: Timeblocking! Start your day by filling in how you intend to spend your time. Drag the “today toggle” over to the calendar in the centre at the end of each day to enter your daily timeblocking into your ‘docket’ database.
On the right: In classic @drdtob style, I’ve embedded a ‘docket’ calendar and corresponding ‘to do list’ for simple task management. Be sure to check out the different views!
Happy daily dashboarding Notion fans!
