Productivity, Creativity, NoCode Tools 🛠️

👋 Welcome!

We begin Friday with another brilliant Superorganizers post by Dan Shipper, this time on the talented Ali Abdaal. Not only is Ali a practising doctor, but he’s also built a productivity YouTube channel with over 1M subscribers. He’s just begun a sabbatical from medicine to spend more time on this work as well as his podcast, email newsletter, and blog. In this post, he gives a brilliant review of his workflow when developing and building a video using tools such as Notion, Things, Drafts and Roam Research. He also practices Tiago Forte’s Building a Second Brain methodology. Great insights for anyone wanting to improve their productivity. Read the full newsletter.
