Why I Started a Bullet Journal 

Why I Started a Bullet Journal 

So I began this thing called Bullet Journaling. It’s a system to keep track of, and stay on top of events and tasks. It works well for managing your time and being more productive. It’s simple enough to never be in the way, yet it accomplishes so much. I’m not completely familiar with the system yet. I just began, obviously. Honestly I don’t know what to expect from it.


My Hopes…and dreams


By using it my goal is to better manage my tasks and goals for my daily life. I have many things that I think about or want to do and accomplish. Yet many of those things are rarely ever accomplished or even thought of again. It’s always been a struggle and maybe some of you can relate. My goal is to manage those things more effectively and to be more efficient in achieving goals and completing tasks.

The most appealing thing about the bullet journal is that it is several notebooks (or journals) all in one and the whole system is completely customizable. For instance, in one section of the journal you can keep an overview, sort of a Birdseye view of your month. In the next section, you can keep a log of your daily tasks, events, and ideas. The rest of the notebook is an empty book waiting to be consumed with your imagination.

Another example, I have several notebooks. One book might keep track of my prayer requests, another might just be a random thoughts and ideas folder, I may even have another for notes from church and sermons, another for book notes, another for logs, another for lists, another for goals. And the list may go on and on for some of you.

The best part of the bullet journal?!

The bullet journal consumes ALL your notebooks and combines them into one manageable and easy to use system. It’s simple. It’s customizable. And I’m hoping it works.

Now I don’t anticipate this post to make you desire the bullet journal more than whatever you use to manage stuff. I mainly just want to share my thoughts about it and share why I love the idea. It’s not super popular, well…it’s sort of popular, I guess. Okay, maybe it IS popular. ANYWAY…I just started it and it’ll be interesting to see how it works.
