The Bullet Journal (BuJo)

The Bullet Journal (BuJo)

It lets you capture all your notes, to-do lists, calendars and sketches and organize them into a single system.

It uses a practice called “Rapid Logging,” which involves quickly jotting down tasks, thoughts and ideas as they come to you, categorizing those items with bullets, and creating an Index to make each item easy to find.

Supplies needed to get started with BuJo

You can start a bullet journal in pretty much any empty notebook that you have lying around. That’s all you need. A journal and a pen. 

However, it is much more likely to use a bullet journal every day when getting some joy from the materials you're using. That means that a nicer journal and some bright, funky pens are also a great way to get started and enjoy the process a bit more.

IDEAS

Tasks

They are represented by a simple dot “•”.

You use a dot instead of a checkbox because it's fast, clean, and can easily be transformed to reflect the state of the Task. 

  1. Get a Journal and Writing Utensils
  2. Start an Index Page: The backbone of your BuJo system, like a table of contents in a book
  3. Create Logs - places where you can brain-dump tasks, projects, goals
  4. Pick Signifiers: Many people use bullets for lists of tasks, circles for events, and dashes for notes. 
  5. Document Items with Collections: Collections are running lists and anything you want to remember for later(like blog topics, books you want to read etc.)
