Episode 30 Bullet Journals and Getting Organized

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to get organized, you're in the right place. In Episode 28 my co-hosts and I talked about what worked and what didn’t work for us in 2016. We found out that one of the things that worked for was Bullet Journaling. Elise has an interest in giving a try so we thought it would be fun to have a tutorial with her right here on the podcast.

What is a bullet journal?

The Bullet Journal is an analog system of organization, created by Ryder Carroll, a Designer based in New York. In his words, the Bullet Journal is meant “to help you track the past, organize the present, and plan for the future.”

  • Need: a notebook and a pen
  • Made up of:
  • Index
  • Collections such as Future Log, Monthly Log, and Daily Log, and list of things that matter to you.
  • Rapid Logging which includes: Tasks, Events, Notes which use signifiers to differentiate them.
  • Migration - the cornerstone of the Bullet Journal. The act of reviewing, essentially the act of moving over undone Tasks over to another Collection
