Another tweet thread in which a user reported :
Looks like my company notion experiment will go down as a fail.
Why it didn’t work:
To start Everyone hates it.
No one else on my team is a system design nerd, in fact, they are actually on the opposite end.
There’s a philosophical mismatch
Next, I never did any formal type of launch.
Because we’re a brand new company, and because I know what pains we will experience, I brought in @NotionHQ to solve them in advance.
Most people won’t change how they work until it’s beyond painful.
Notion is totally bespoke. It offers very little guidance without meaningful intention and investment.
Slow-burning it didn’t work. Not for me and not for the team.
- Cultural mismatch
- Lack of strong ‘why’
- Lack of care to invest and build
Nothing against the tool itself but couldn’t spark that magic feeling.
Next experiment - Clickup + Roam
NotionHq’s response was very positive :
