I decided this week after another dose of daily overwhelm to start a bullet journal. As I’ve gotten to understand how I work best I’ve realised that digital tools are too much of a distraction for me and I need to both write things down and be able to organise things how I want.
The beauty of this method is I can use any notebook (I’m using this one) I want and by using an index I can organise anyway that I want.
I’ve gone with the recommended way as I get going
- Number all my pages
- Create an index page
- The future log (divide 4 pages into 3 sections and label each with a month)
- The monthly log (left page is the calendar schedule) and right is the tasks you want to do that month
- The daily log (simply write the date and then what you want to get done each day)
- Collections (think of it like groups of similar or a project), so I have one for my blog writing down ideas for posts
That’s it for now whilst I figure out how I want to organise. I’m thinking of adding a habit tracker but for now I’m happy with how I have it.
Got any tips for a newbie?
