I don’t know a whole lot of people who are totally satisfied with their method of organization. Calendars, to-do-lists, agendas, post-it notes, apps, it seems to take a lot to keep us between the lines. And even then, we swerve around a lot. Here’s an interesting idea about how to stay organized: a bullet journal. It’s a way to document the past, organize the present, and plan for the future…all in one place. The New York Times recently featured an article about bullet journals, and once I started googling it, I realized that it’s everywhere. It looks like one of those things that might take a little time, but once you get it set up and learn how it works, it could really make things easier.
Side Note: If you do search around for it a bit, you’ll see that some people’s bullet journals are amazingly beautiful. Stunning. Works of art. Listen, my non-creative friends: That is optional. It has to be. If it’s required, there’s no way most people could be successful with this. I choose to appreciate what others can do, but I just don’t have that in me. I’m doing well to read my own handwriting these days. If you choose to try a bullet journal, do it your way, and it will be beautiful no matter what because it will be what you need. Zen on, bulleters. You be you.
