I do, of course, effectively use many digital tools for dedicated organizational purposes (like note-taking apps, to-do lists and calendar), but use those for the rather large, complex or more long term things (e.g. larger life-goals, research projects, …). Anyway, I will soon have a separate major post coming on my personal note taking-system, which is a combination of various analogue and digital applications, products and techniques that all sort of tie into one another. This is why I won´t loose too many words on that one right here and now.
Also, I will not go too much into the details of the Bullet Journaling method because this is already covered very well on various corners of the web. I do only want say as much as the Bullet Journal being a wonderful and super-flexible method of organizing and keeping track of about anything you can think of. To use the words of the inventor of the the Bullet Journal-system, Ryder Caroll, the system “can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above. It will teach you to do more with less.” And this is more than true. The system really has changed the way I go about my daily stuff. For further inspiration I can also recommend having a look at the pages of Kim and Kara, two people who also drive the BuJo-community in a way and that I do take inspiration from, too.
The Bullet Journal-Workshop is meant to share with you the ideas, add-ons, adaptations and small improvements that I have come up with myself, as I use and refine the Bullet Journal in my own everyday-life – being the flexible and open system that it really is.
I hope this section will be helpful to you, maybe serve as an inspiration and that you enjoy reading it!
Part 5: How I normally set up my BuJo at the beginning of a new year
I have just filled up my current Bullet Journal and, hence, already set up the one that I am going to use for 2017. Since the new journal does not yet contain much of private information, I thought I may well share my setup with you. Hope it’s helpful or so 🙂 .
