Your templates and channel are so immeasurably helpful! Especially for someone like me who recently found out I have ADHD and am trying to learn better skills to organize my life. Thanks for all your work and for sharing all your knowledge!

UB has helped me to organize my life as a Ph.D. student. Using the P.A.R.A. system incorporated in UB was a real discovery for me!

I was creating and ajusting a second brain for myself for more than 4 months and I was hitting multiple workflow limitations on my system. It took me only two weeks to be fully functional and organized on Ultimate Brain, including learning all aspects of Ultimate Brain, migrate all my info from my previous system to the right place and starting to use it to a point of using less time to get the same work done. My favourite part of Ultimate Brain is the Quick Capture page. It was the only method that guaranteed as much urgency as possible making sure I captured all my notes and tasks ONLY on notion while also not becoming a huge mess with time.

I was looking for a productivity tool that would allow me to condense all of the systems I use into one place. Ultimate Brain plus Creator's Companion is that tool for me. The amount of documentation, tutorial videos, and support that Thomas offers has made the major change almost effortless. I would highly recommend these templates to anyone who is looking for an efficient, all-in-one system for managing tasks, notes, projects, and more.

Thomas Frank’s Ultimate Brain is one of the best templates and accompanying tutorials on the market for both personal and business use. It's easy to see his deep and practical understanding of Notion and that he actually uses it on regular basis for few years.

A huge thanks to Thomas and the team for this template and all the work you put into it! I’ve tried to come up with a system that fits my needs for quite some time now, but always found it lacking. Thanks to Ultimate Brain I can now trust that I have a safe and reliable place for all my tasks and notes. This allows me to be productive instead of putting my time into fixing or updating my own attempt at such and system. The tutorials that come with this template are (as with all of Thomas’ content) top notch and make it really easy to get started right away. I really like the flexibility of the system and how well thought out it is, especially with the great integration of GTD and PARA. If you are only remotely interested in productivity or building a second brain this is the template to go, totally worth its price - highly recommend!

I have been looking for something like Ultimate Brain for years. I started reading Building a Second Brain and came across Thomas Frank's YouTube tutorial. I have watched his videos before on Notion but I am not zoned into creating my own templates. This is a complete game changer. I can't thank you enough for putting this together. Building Your Second Brain and Ultimate Brain has rally really changed my life for the better, I can't recommend it enough.

Sure, you could create an template like that on your own! But if you don't wanna loose time with digging very deep into the sphere of Notion, this template is just perfect for getting startet in creating your own personal second brain. Thanks for all the work you put in this, Thomas! ❤️

As an aged geek, I spend hours playing with the tech but never quite get around to doing anything useful with it. Investing in the UB means I am actually using Notion - not messing about (and at my age, I don't have the time to waste). I have made more progress with my second brain in a week than I have in the last 6 months, thanks to the UB. When I buy things it usually doesn't take me long to find something that's missing or might be better done another way......so far that hasn't happened with UB. It's very thoughtfully put together and does everything I hoped it would do. If you really want to do something and build out your second brain, I think, like me, you'll appreciate the time save the UB represents. I'm thrilled with it.

When I first started learning about Notion, I realized it would be a godsend for my work as a freelance writer (and for all parts of my life). So, I started watching YouTube videos, reading instructions, building my own simple databases, and trying to do it myself. All the time, I realized I was putting more time into building my Second Brain than I was getting benefits from. Then I saw Frank Thomas’s Ultimate Brain for Notion. YES! This seemed like the perfect, sweat-free solution. I didn’t have to build my own Second Brain. I could harness Frank’s hard work and attention to minute details. With the fair money-back guarantee, I had no reason not to try it. The training videos got me moving faster than I expected. I use it daily,. And while I’m far from being an expert on the Ultimate Brain, I’m learning more and improving my workflow with every use. If you’re serious about improving your productivity with Notion, Frank Thomas’s Ultimate Brain for Notion is an absolute necessity.

I'm in love with Ultimate Brain. This template is really helping me to stay organize, to have everything I might need in one place and to keep track of my goals. I think I apprciate most of the template but the GTD process is great once we get into it and the "area and ressources" parts are awesome. This is a game changer and I definitely recommand this template. Thank you Thomas and your team for putting this together for us all.

One week in, and I'm already seen fabulous results. After creating a channel for each of my projects, I immediately saw that some of the projects were undoable, so I've trimmed them down to something realistic. Also, my podcast episode workflow is nowhere near as overwhelming as it used to be. I can see all the steps for each episode, and I can move them from column to column as I complete each step. Love that. My only regret about Ultimate Brain is not having joined in before.

This is an easy product to recommend. Being a Bullet Journal user for about seven years I've struggled to find a digital productivity substitute. Having tried several alternatives they've always lacked the breadth of features I was looking for. That's where Ultimate Brain has come in. Ultimate Brain is a very comprehensive solution. It's many features may seem daunting, but the breadth of tutorials and access to the support channel have made ramp up time and usage a quick process. The ability to customize the solution to fit my needs has been refreshing. I live in the "My Day" section which provides access to everything important. Additionally I've been able to create areas for my day job, side gig, and hobbies allowing them all to be separate but easily accessable due to the shared database structure. All of this leads to an abandonment of my Bullet Journal and now I have access to everything from my desktop, iPad, and phone.

I liked the year I had with the August Bardley's system but Thomas Frank's looks like it will suit me better. I am only a week into it and still migrating but I can say that I enjoy the way that it supports PARA by having links between Projects, Areas, Resources, Tasks etc so conveniently and intuitively connected.

I have downloaded and sometimes purchased a few templates for Notion since I recently got it, but I have to say that Thomas Frank's "Ultimate Brain" is the most comprehensive and creative. I don't know how to use a lot of it, but his tutorials have been extremely helpful. A great deal of thought and work went into the creation of this template, Thank you, Thomas!

As a college student, it can get really easy to forget assignments, loose class notes, and overall get overwhelmed by school. But by using Ultimate Brain, I have been able to stay ahead of assignments and keep all my class notes together in one place! I definitely would be lost and swamped, without this incredible tool! If you are like me and wish to be more organized in life, definitely consider picking up what Thomas Frank has spent so much time developing and watch your life change around!

UB has enabled me to get so much out of Notion. I knew I loved the flexibility that Notion provided but it felt way too overwhelming with all the possibilities and the learning curve felt steep. With UB, Thomas Frank not only fills in those gaps but provides support along the way. The active community of UB users ensures you’ll have your questions answered and find inspiration along the way. I’m incredibly appreciative of this resource and highly recommend it. I still have a lot to learn but that’s part of the fun. If you’re on the fence get off it and give Ultimate Brain a chance!! So worth it!

I have been using various note taking and task management apps over the years but never consolidated everything into one place. The Ultimate Brain is helping me to consolidate and structure all my notes and interests into one place. I am also able to mix personal and professional to-do actions to really manage my day.

Ultimate Brain has significantly levelup my knowledge input and productivity. I was struggling with constantly "creation mode" but never get things done. With the help of Ultimate Brain, it saved me from procrastination, collect more knowledge, turn them into insights, and serve my clients/audience. My favorite part of Ultimate Brain is that it utilizes different productivity methods, such as P.A.R.A system and G.T.D intake system. It also takes out the formula and Relations without having me spending thousand hours to build my Second Brain. 100% recommend Ultimate Brain if you'd like to uplevel your productivity, turn your knowledge into insights!

Ultimate Brain has decreased my stress levels by about a hundred percent. I'm juggling a full-time data science/statistics degree, parenting, research projects and community development projects, as well as the very early stages of a start-up, and until I started using Ultimate Brain I always carried that awful feeling that something was slipping through the cracks. Never again! Now, I always know exactly what's on my plate, when its due, and what the next steps are, so I can balance productivity and leisure time without a shadow looming over me. Ultimate Brain is perfect for managing my university workload, and it's task manager makes staying on track easy. But its benefits go far beyond task management. I've slightly tweaked the Notes database to create a custom Note type called "References", making Notion/Ultimate Brain my bibliography management tool. I've made templates for assignments that pull in relevant resources, default tasks, and a Kanban board for ideation and planning (which works much better than the wall full of post-it notes I used to use!). I can share Task pages to collaborate for group tasks. The relations between Projects, Tasks, and Notes mean that my class notes are always where I need them, and Notion's code snippet and LaTeX blocks have allowed me to build a repository of useful formulas, R and Python scripts. I'm not sure how I functioned before I started using Ultimate Brain. It's shaping up to be the best investment I've made in years.

I’ve been looking for an ultimate productivity app/ template to achieve organization in my personal, studies, and work life. I love using Calendar to remind me with everything that will happen in a day, but I also like to take notes, write daily journals, research stuffs for work, and write reviews or insights on a book I am reading currently. I can do all these with the Ultimate Brain and I am absolutely getting a lot of things done! I really like the recurring tasks and the subtasks feature! As a nurse leader and a student, I tend to get overloaded with informations, meetings, and deadlines! Ultimate brain have really helped me a lot!

I love the plug and play aspect of the Ultimate Brain from Frank Thomas. I cannot imagine how much time and frustration it would have cost me to create it on my own. Frank's videos are terrific and provide a lot of use cases to help you to get the most out of the Ultimate Brain. Don't procrastinate. Act now and don't look back!

While I'm confident I could have pieced together a workable system at some point, I'm glad I made the decision to purchase Ultimate Brain. It has everything I need, plus more. I've added the P.A.R.A. method into my workflow, and I've used the My Day view more than I anticipated. The book tracker is a fun bonus, particularly for my non-fiction reading. I am grateful for this well-thought-out and expertly crafted comprehensive tool.

I think Thomas Frank has created a new software out of Notion! Seriously Thomas is a genius, he has thought of the system at a very micro level. I think that the principles of Notion that he has used are brilliant.

I had a decent work space using the PARA concept, Objectives, Master Data bases, relations, roll ups, etc. I neglected to build out templates though. And the Resource / Area was a mess. I've watched Thomas Frank videos in the past and he always impresses with the detail and thoroughness. I figured why not give Ultimate Brain a try to see if I can get to the next level. The system is solid. For me, it seems about right. I've invested time going through the system (which is needed to learn it). Thumbs up!

Of all the "Second Brain" templates I've heard of, Thomas J Frank's is the best and most comprehensive. It not only incorporates Tiago Forte's tools, but also GTD and other possibilities. He gives you a solved job that would take you at least months to build by yourself. Also, nowhere are you going to find so much support to put this tool at your service.

The Ultimate brain template makes it simple to create a digital second brain without any of the hassle of setting the whole system up yourself. Get the template and then tweak it to suit your own needs.

I like staying physically organized and neat, I don’t like messes. But I always had a hard time staying digitally organized. My projects, to do lists, and notes always ended up in different places and it KINDA worked. But it always bugged me that my digital life was less organized than my home. Once I saw Thomas’s big Ultimate Brain explanation video I realized this could finally be the answer I was looking for! And it is! So far it’s been very easy to implement after watching his videos. Now all of my copious random notes, bookmarks, to do lists, and projects are all organized and in the same location for the first time ever. And it feels Devine. Thanks is for the hard work on this system Thomas, it’s great.

Thomas Frank’s Ultimate Brain template is worth it’s weight in gold! It saved me a ton of time trying to create something like this on my own, and I’m sure I would’ve missed some of the finer points he’s thought of.
