I took the plunge. I was tired of being plagued by things I wanted to remember, but ended up forgetting until an inopportune time, which started the cycle again. I have started Bullet Journaling.
I first heard about bullet journaling several months ago. The idea of it interested me, but I didn’t take the time to actually learn how to do it. Then, a few days ago I thought about it again and decided now was the time to see what it was actually about. I went to the Bullet Journal website and checked out some other blogs and tutorials, and then I went straight to the store and bought a notebook and started setting my journal up. I’m pretty excited about how this could change my life. I already feel more organized. I have a place to keep track of things I need to do (which causes more productivity) and habits I want to track (or start…). Plus I have a place (and a reason) to doodle. Which is super fun.
One of the beauties of the Bullet Journal system is that you can use any notebook you want. I chose a floppy leather journal in a style that I’ve always wanted.
My title page has a doodle of the year, as well as a key to the symbols I’m planning to use (and room to add more).
The future log is a general overview of the months ahead. I’ve added important dates like birthdays and auditions.
My monthly log is a more in-depth view of the current month where I’ve listed appointments and future reminders (more than 1-2 days ahead).
Here you see my daily log. It’s different every day as different things come up. I write down my to-do list as it comes to me throughout the day. At the bottom you can see a habit tracker I started to help me keep on track.
I’ll let you know as time goes on how I like it.
