I have been using Notion for more than 2 years now. With time, I’ve realized that it doesn’t allow cross-pollination of ideas. That’s where Roam Research comes into play.
One thing that was a deal-maker for me is that it also acts as a personal CRM. You can tag notes with any person’s name and clicking on that name gives the entire history of all previous interactions.
I have started using it now to put down my raw thoughts whenever they come up. To be honest, I still haven’t got the hang of it. But I have a good feeling that this is the future, especially as my notes will only keep increasing.
P.S. I might switch to Obsidian once it moves to version 1. Right now, it’s 0.12.15 which doesn’t give me a lot of confidence in its stability. I’ll continue using Day One for journaling as it provides password protection and prompts.
Until We Meet Again…
