The first steps - Deepstash

The first steps

  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.)

MORE IDEAS FROM Bullet Journaling for Beginners (and Impatient, Unartistic People Like Me)

The 3 common types of logs:
  • A future log helps you keep track of items that aren’t yet on your immediate radar.
  • Monthly logs include things like calendars and categorized goal lists for the next 30 days.
  • Daily logs may includes entries of to-dos, meetings, and reminders.

  • It frees up mental space so you can think more clearly and concentrate better.
  • Better retention. Writing by hand engages multiple senses  (visual, kinesthetic, and tactical ) which helps commit tasks to memory. It also signals to your brain that your goals are important, making you more likely to follow through.
  • Psychologically speaking, bullet journaling is more powerful than other paper-planning methods because it’s also a life record and a place for reflection.

Any creative endeavor involves letting go of perfection. Bullet journaling is no different. Make a mess.

The bullet journal method

Ryder Carroll started the Bullet Journal Method that grew into a lifestyle movement.

The bullet journal is a paper-and-pen journal where you can organise all of your lists, projects and plans in one place. Bullet journaling will help you to be more productive by organising what you have to do. However, the real purpose is to be mindful of why you're doing the tasks.

Bullet Journals

A Bullet Journal (BuJo) is a tool that can help you organize your life and improve your mental health. It is more beneficial than a checklist or a to-do list and a calendar. It is used to track anything from moods to sleep or periods.

The 'creative', do-it-yourself part of a bullet journal works as a cathartic process on your mind.
