Bullet Journaling

Bullet Journaling

Have you ever heard of bullet journaling? No? Great! Bullet journaling is a simple and fun way to stay organized when trying to balance a very busy life. Bullet journaling was first created by Ryder Carroll who explained that a bullet journal is meant to “help you track the past, organize the present and plan for the future”. 

I know you’re probably thinking to yourself, how will I have time to sit down and write in a journal? But I’m telling you, it only takes a few minutes! Don’t focus on your handwriting or drawing skills, just focus on the content. All you need is a pen/pencil and a journal!Your first journal will be more of an experiment. This is your chance to get comfortable with bullet journaling and developing your own style. 

Step 1:

Create an index page. This will be like your reference page or table of contents to help you organize your journal and find certain pages easily.

Step 2: 

Create logs. Daily logs: meetings, to-dos, reminders. Monthly logs: calendars and goal lists for the next 30 days. Future log: Think long-term goals. 

Step 3: 

Pick Signifiers. These will be the symbols you choose to use (bullets, dashes, circles, etc.) You can even use certain colors to organize as well. 

Step 4:

Collections. These are lists of anything you want to remember for later: books, movies, friends, blog topics, self care tips, etc. 

Step 5:

The last step is to make time for your book journal. Pick a time during the day that you want to dedicate specifically to bullet journaling. Check off items on your logs as you complete them. Write page numbers. Update your Index. Take time to reflect on the goals you’ve accomplished and those you still wish to. 

It may seem like a lot at first but don’t think too much into it. This journal is all about you; to help you. Make it your own. You don’t even have to follow these steps, especially once you get the hang of it. Do what makes you the most comfortable. In the end, it should serve as your own hand made, personalized life organizer.
