Over the years, I have acquired an arsenal of planners, notepads and notebooks. They’re the stationery products I covet the most and I always justify my purchases by designating a specific use for each one. For example, “Oh, I’ll use this one to track work-related tasks and this one for home projects.”
As a result, all of my most important ideas, tasks and projects are spread across no fewer than 3 journals. My current system can easily be described as organized chaos. And to no surprise, it’s no longer working for me and my growing need to simplify and have everything in one place. Sound familiar to anyone?
In comes bullet journaling. I’ve known about this system for some time, but have always felt a little intimidated by the methodical nature of this practice and fearful that I’ll abandon it after a week or two. However, I’ve decided to give it a go at last and have been taking baby steps. First, I started using this habit tracker last year. And now, I’m testing out a few different weekly log designs with the hopes that the process will stick.
And since I figured I’m not alone, I thought I’d share three templates that I developed using this grid notepad. There’s one for tracking your weekly tasks/notes/goals, another for your daily schedule and lastly, one for logging your daily habits, water intake and sleep patterns. Like I said, I’m starting small, but hopefully with time I’ll work my way up to filling this notebook. So tell me, are you a BuJo expert and do you have any tips for a newbie like me?
