Behold – The Bullet Journal

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.
