Best Notion Second Brain Templates [2023 Updates]

Notion Second Brain Banner Image

Creating a second brain is a concept coined by researcher Tiago Forte.

It’s a note-taking method that helps organize your digital life.

We all have so much information and content to keep track of between our personal and working lives.

Documents, videos, articles, websites, podcasts. It’s ovewhelming.

To make the best use of that information we need to package it together for our future selves to use.

Building a Second Brain is a way to do that.

This list organizes my favorite second brain templates for Notion, by creators like Easlo, Thomas Frank, and many others.

This page is one of my many Notion posts, here are a few others:
