Bullet Journals (BuJos) are personal planners that anyone can create themselves. You can assign different to-do’s or events with symbols of your choice. You can organize your planner by year, month, week, or day. This method allows you to see an overview of all upcoming events, tasks, and to-dos.
A Bullet Journal has three kinds of pages: logs, lists, and trackers. The logs are the most similar to a traditional planner. To create them, you’ll divide time into several layouts: a future log (with the whole year), a monthly log, and a weekly or daily log (the choice is up to you).
Adding lists to your Bullet Journal can be handy. It is a notebook where you can write all the things you want to remember. That’s why it’s the perfect place to record all those movies you’d like to watch all the trips you’d like to make, etc.
For some users, trackers are the funniest part. The idea is to use a drawing in process to track your mood, your habits, or the tasks you must accomplish daily. This way, you can quickly check your performance.
BuJo for beginners: essential tips
You have implemented the Bullet Journal method. Congratulations! We hope it will help you improve your organizational skills. Here are two tips that you should consider.
Keep it simple. At least, at the start. It is better to focus on getting used to the method. There are a lot of sections that you can add, but make sure it doesn’t give you a lot of extra work. You could get overwhelmed and quit.
Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. There is not a specific way to apply the method. Journaling is all about testing and seeing what works best for you.
