What’s inside

The Bullet Journal is a personal organizational system that many people use to efficiently go about their day. It helps us focus and structure our lives on things and events that are important to us. It is a to-do list, journal, meditation tool, and a calendar, all in one. A bullet journal enables us to track our experiences and thoughts effectively and simply. The author, Ryder Carroll says that, “The Bullet Journal is a mindfulness practice that’s disguised as a productivity system.” Bullet Journaling isn’t about optimizing productivity; people often use Bullet Journals to monitor their emotions. It is often used to look back on experiences and have a clear notion about an individual’s goals in life. The author calls it ‘intentional living’. He tells us that bullet journaling helps us get rid of unnecessary distractions. Through this process, we will be able to focus on those things that truly matter. Both in our personal, and professional life, we must pursue what we are passionate about. By concentrating on fewer things, we invest time in activities and experiences that we care about.

LESSON 1: Think before you write your thoughts. 

The author emphasizes the need to edit one’s tasks before one writes them down in the ‘bujo’ or Bullet Journal, as it is popularly called. The mission of the Bullet Journal is to help us declutter our minds. It helps us to be mindful of how we spend our time and energy. One needs to combine productivity, pure intentions, and mindfulness to experience a day that is practical, flexible, and forgiving. 

A Bullet Journal is aesthetically pleasing, filled with unique symbols, color-coded words, and gorgeous handwriting. Images of such beautiful and crisp white pages might leave us itching to pick up a pen and a Bullet Journal. However, the author urges us to re-evaluate before taking a step like this. The goal must not be to fill up the pages without a purpose. Our Bullet Journals should be reserved for what we hold close to our heart, and what we are passionate about. The Bullet Journal Method will help you accomplish more by working on less. It helps you identify and focus on what is meaningful by stripping away what is meaningless.”

A Bullet Journal is not a rough notebook that we keep around the house. It isn’t a diary where we write down random thoughts that we might have throughout the day. The Bullet Journal should not be a notebook that we throw away once the pages are filled to the brim. A Bullet Journal is a tool that helps us focus. Many people struggle with keeping their concentration on certain things without losing focus. 

A Bullet Journal shouldn’t stress you out. One shouldn’t feel like they need to fill it up religiously. It should simply help an individual focus on what is important to them. It should help us work towards our desired goal. Studies show that we have around 70,000 thoughts per day. And if we put that number of thoughts on paper we’ll have enough information to produce a book every single day. However, unlike books, our thoughts tend to get scattered. We often struggle to find clarity and meaning in the chaos of our thoughts. 

We think about too many things, most of which are merely distractions. However, only when we write everything down, we understand what’s important.

LESSON 2: Organizational tools and Bullet Journaling.

We do not need much to get started with Bullet Journaling. We will need a notebook, with either lined pages or plain blank pages. People often wonder why Bullet Journaling is primarily done by hand. The primary goal of Bullet Journaling is to increase focus and get
