The quote in today’s graphic is one I’ve used previously. It’s also the image I see each time I stare at my computer’s desktop screen.
I think this quote rocks. I don’t know about you, but there are countless things I want to do that I just haven’t done. Perhaps I never will do them. Or perhaps I simply need to be better organized—more efficient in my approach to my goals.
Don’t get me wrong. I make lists. Lots of lists.
My lists are everywhere—kitchen counter, kitchen table, desk. They cover every area of my life—writing, promotion, family schedule, school, travel, housework, home repair projects, creative goals. You name it, I’ve written it down somewhere.
My lists have lists. If only there were some way to organize them…
Enter the Bullet Journal.
Have you heard of this idea? I hadn’t. Not until this past weekend.
If you search on the term “Bullet Journal,” you’ll discover the actual website—complete with how-to videos and graphics. You’ll also discover a multitude of bloggers who’ve embraced the idea. It’s the bloggers and their videos that sucked me in over this past weekend.
The Bullet Journal idea is a one-book system to organize everything: Schedule. Deadlines. Goals. Tasks. Books to write. Books to read. Dream projects. 5Ks to run. Inspirational quotes. Doodles. You name it.
Future goals are planned. Accomplishments are logged daily. Habits are tracked. Unfinished tasks are migrated forward or deleted, if they’re no longer important.
Color me intrigued.
I am a pen to paper sort of gal. I’ve tried color-coded planning on my laptop, and I’ve failed miserably.
So, of course, I bought a new journal—a beautiful vivid purple book with lovely, blank pages waiting for me to fill them up using my new set of twenty fine-point pens.
You know those things I always wanted to do? I’m about to do them.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
As a matter of fact, let me put that on my list…er…in my journal.
