2016 Planning Series: Bullet Journal Introduction | The Basic Setup | Video


Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday. I am back today with another video in my 2016 planning series. I have loved sharing different planners and journals with you so far this year but now we are to the point where I want to start talking about Bullet Journaling. I want to break it down to the bare bones and share how easy it is to use this system created by Ryder Carroll. He designed a way of rapid logging that is sure to help us all in our everyday lives.  In the video below you will find the very simple system without a lot of extras. Again...it's more simple than most would realize. Hope you enjoy the video! 


I know that when you online at bullet journals many are extremely decorated and color coded....but none of that is necessary with this system. I recommend really getting to know the bullet journal and how it works with the Index, Future Log, the different collections, rapid logging, using bullets and signifiers and finally pulling it all together through migration. 

Once you have the system down, then start decorating and such if you wish. But making it complex to use normally means it won't actually get used that much. So don't make it too complex at first. Just get to know the system. And maybe some of you are already amazing at bullet journaling. But before we start really diving into the subject of bullet journaling, we should talk about the simple concept of this way of journaling/planning. 

Because I am using this system again and because I love it, I am great Moleskine Notebook that would be perfect for a new bullet journal. So I am giving one each way to a couple of you lucky winners!  You have till July 6, 2016 to get entered. You do not need a facebook account but you do have to share your email. There are a lot of ways to get entered below...to earn more entries! The winners will be announced on THIS BLOG POST. Good Luck!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed the video. I also hope it inspires you to consider using the bullet journal in  your everyday lives. There are so many different beautiful bullet journals out there but it doesn't have to be that complex. It's not suppose to make you feel stressed out to work in the journal. Instead you should feel at peace that you are accomplishing all of your tasks and staying on schedule. I do have my current bullet journal decorated a little but the analog system is what keeps it all straight! More bullet journal video's and blog posts coming soon. xx

  1. I always enjoy watching your videos but this bullet journal one is something I would love to give a try too. It sounds like a good way to get a system going. Not just saying you have to do something and keep putting it off. I like the show and tell and the idea and the different lists you can do with projects, exercise, books read/want to read, weight lost/gain, and so much more. I have so many ideas. Now to just do it. I haven't done a so called calendar this year with events, birthdays etc and even though I have for appts in my pocket book I feel lost that I didn't find something I wanted to use for the other stuff.
