1. Add to Favorites your recent project or page. 2. Open the url of your main Notion workspace, and it will redirect to the most recent Favorite.
Notion app – the task
▸ Notion app is my primary workspace. I have moved most of my projects, big and small, here. The problem is the more stuff you have, the harder it is to find the most important one.
▸ I have several Notion pages bookmarked in my browser. The bookmark folder is getting longer and longer, and I no longer save time trying to find the right bookmark.
▸ The thing is that the most important project is the one that you are currently working on. It’s the project you come back to several times. You can add another bookmark to your already crowded bookmark folder – or you can use a neat but little known feature Notion has for a long time (which I have discovered recently).
▸ When you open the url address of your Notion workspace, let’s say it’s notion.so/myworkspace, the web app will not show you a 1st-level list of projects (Favorites/Shared/Private) but default to the page that has been added to Favorites as the last one.
How to make Notion app open recent page by default
1. Open Notion web page (you can do if from any bookmark you have in your browser) and start a new page.
2. Add that new page to Favorites. Today, it’s your most important project, right? The page will appear at the top of Favorites folder in the sidebar.
3. There is no need to bookmark this page in your browser. Simply, enter Notion via the main url address of your workspace, let’s say it’s notion.so/myworkspace.
4. You can also edit one of your current Notion bookmarks – remove everything that’s after myworkspace and save the bookmark.
From now on, when you open notion.so/myworkspace, or the bookmark with that url, you will be redirected to your last Favorite page.
If you want any of your older Favorites to be the default one, simply remove it from the Favorites and add it back. It will appear at the top of the Favorites section – and it means it will become your default Notion page.

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
by 99U & Jocelyn K. Glei
The world we work in today is not the world of Michelangelo, of Marie Curie, of Ernest Hemingway, or even of Paul Rand. It is a new world, empowered and entranced by the rapid-fire introduction of new technologies—a world where our metaphysical front door is always open, where anyone can whisper in our ear, where a “room of one’s own” no longer means you’re all alone.
Creative minds are exceedingly sensitive to the buzz and whir of the world around them, and we now have to contend with a constant stream of chirps, pings, and alerts at all hours of the day. As these urgent demands tug us this way and that, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a centered space for creativity.
Taking stock of this challenging new landscape, 99U’s Manage Your Day-to-Day assembles insights around four key skill sets you must master to succeed: building a rock-solid daily routine, taming your tools (before they tame you), finding focus in a distracted world, and sharpening your creative mind.
Dedicating a chapter to each of these focus areas, we invited a group of seasoned thought leaders and creatives—Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tony Schwartz, Gretchen Rubin, Dan Ariely, Linda Stone, Steven Pressfield, and others—to share their expertise. Our goal was to come at the problems and struggles of this new world of work from as many angles as possible.
Because we each have a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, and sensitivities, it is impossible to prescribe a single approach that will work for everyone. The right solution for you will always be personal—an idiosyncratic combination of strategies based on your own work demands, habits, and preferences.
One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.
