Bullet Journaling

Bullet Journaling- heard of it? I hadnt until recently.

Bullet journaling is a new system taking internet geeks and organising wizards bystorm. It was created by a Brooklyn-based designer Ryder Carroll,who spent 20 years developing the method so he could stay organised. Essentially, it’s a modern Filofax – a place to dump all your thoughts, organise yourself and also involve your creative side.

Basically its a coded system for organising your thoughts, ideas, plans, events etc. It’s a DIY journal that is creative and bespoke to you.
Simply buy a blank book and begin your journal.
I suggest a watch of this first to give you the general idea.

Here are your next steps:

1. Purchase the right notebook. That’s all you need, because with this system you ditch your twenty million half-started notebooks and put everything in one place. I repeat, that’s one notebook, with everything in it.

2. You can make you own rules in terms of what goes in and how you use it. I mean, there’s a basic formula for keeping track of things (see the video above) but I’ve included lists for tracking my meals, meditation, exercise and downtime too. That’s the beauty of this system – you personalise it.

3. Get planning. Invest in some nice pens, a ruler, a mechanical pencil (you will mess up when you start) and go online for inspiration – there are tonnes of videos and Pinterest boards about Bullet Journaling to get you inspired ad send you on the way to creating your own bespoke diary.

Its really that simple, but, if youre still unsure head over to the Bullet Journal website for some more info.
