The Bullet Journal is a customizable and forgiving organization system. It can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above. It will teach you to do more with less.
Bullet journaling is one of the things I recently discovered. It is everything in one notebook. It is my agenda, to do list, reminder, distraction from bad thougts (my mini therapist), Place to draw or doodling and much more.
Did you already get excited! Let me tell you some more about my new agenda. A plain agenda doesn’t have much room for extra topics. A bullet journal is blank and you fill it with what you want from an agenda. These further topics got me wildly excited about bullet journaling.
As you can see the difference is huge. It looks like a lot of work but it isn’t at all. You need to see a bullet journal as your own personality. Some people like to write everything down, to decorate and draw, to use it as a journal or as a to do list.
The most important thing from a bullet journal is that it is original, A normal agenda stops yourself from adding things . A bullet journal has every space you want.
One of the basics you can use in your bullet journal or even in your plain agenda is a key page. Instead of writing every detail down, you can use a pictogram. It saves space and work. And you don’t need to read everything to know what you need to do. It makes everything easier.
To make it more of an agenda, can the the logging system save your life. You have the future log , the montly log, weekly log and daily log. The future log comes in handy when you need to write something down that’s going to happen over a few months.
I prefer the monthly log, because It makes everything clearer what you need to do that month, than a weekly log. To make a monthly log more personal I put some goals in it, what I want to achieve that month. This can be ironing blouses, to be more happy. Once again a bullet journal is blank and up to you to fill it in.
I can talk hours about the basics from bullet journaling, but that would be very boring. So if you are interest in bullet journaling, check out the Original website http://www.bulletjournal.com .
Now some of the extra topics you can fill your bullet journal with!:
Lists! Yess lists….. What you want to watch on the television next month, books you still need to read or documentaries you want to watch. A little reminder what you still want to do/watch before you die.
Routines, tips and life quotes. Things you want to carry with you. Are you an anxious person? Maybe carrying some relaxing tips with you is a solution. Or your favorit smoothie recipe, a little story to read when your bored or learning tips. Everything is possible!!
As you can see everything is possible. It is really a reflection of your own personality. Nothing is wron when it comes to bullet journaling.
This is just the tip of the Iceberg! I hope I got you excited about bullet journaling! At least I am :).
