Recently ‘Bullet Journaling’ has become quite popular, especially on YouTube, but many people are confused about what it is and what you have to do. I have bullet journaled for about three years now, and it is such a simple and effective way to keep your brain organised and focused.
People make this sound really complicated when it really isn’t. The truth is, there is no right or wrong way to bullet journal. In short, a bullet journal is a diary without the pressure of writing daily entries. Normally, people use a small notepad in which they write about their short term and long term goals, to-do-lists, random brain thoughts and entries about whatever they feel like. No two people bullet journal the same way, so you kind of just do what you want.
It’s a place for your mind to just blurt out whatever it’s thinking, without thinking about making it look neat and tidy. Paint and decorate all the pages if you want, or write in any pen you find lying around with the occasional doodle in the corner of a page – it’s up to you!
Mine have mostly resembled to-do-books rather than to-do-lists; but at least I haven’t forgotten anything!
