Do you need big, feature-packed, and sometimes complex tool for your work, to stay organized, or keep track of your tasks?

Maybe not.
Maybe all you need is plain text. Yes, simple, old fashioned, unadorned, boring text. It sounds scary or alien, but it's not.

Do you need big, feature-packed, and sometimes complex tool for your work, to stay organized, or keep track of your tasks?

Maybe not.

Maybe all you need is plain text. Yes, simple, old fashioned, unadorned, boring text. It sounds scary or alien, but it's not.

Plain text isn't just for the geek or the techie. Plain text isn't just for the academic or hardcore productivity hacker. Plain text is for everyone.

It doesn't matter if you're a student, a stay-at-home parent, a writer or blogger or journalist, or someone's grandparent. Using plain text can make your life easier and more efficient.

The Plain Text Project is here to help you figure out if working in plain text and living a plain text life is right for you. In this space, I share ideas, tips, and techniques. I explain how to meld plain text into your life. I try to share my love of working in plain text with you.

Years ago, I was attracted to the simplicity of plain text for doing a lot in my life — writing, managing my tasks, organizing my day, taking notes, keeping a daily journal, and more. For a stretch of time, I was seduced away by more glamorous software and web apps. In the end I came back to plain text, and I don't regret it. Why? Read this article to find out.

This looks like a potentially decent Notion alternate, so to use as a back up / alternate.

The past few months I'be been playing around with Notion and liking it for some things I've been looking of a tools or service to handle. Of late is has greatly expanded what it can do, but having and exit plan and alternate that has been holding me back.
