|The beginnings of my bullet journal for 2017|
Hi dear folk
Some of the HM daughters and I are bullet journaling this year.
I have always journaled, kept a diary, made lists and written down goals etc, however these have all been in separate places and never all in one spot. So, with a bullet journal I can keep everything all in one spot.
|I received a unlined parchment|
plain paged journal for Christmas.
It has a clip-over cover and a nice
Badgers skin faux cover.
There are a 'million' pins on Pinterest on how to do bullet journaling (none of it is rocket science). I referred to these just to give myself some visual concept of how to do it (I am a very visual learner). I am keeping mine simple but adding colour to stimulate the ol' brain.
I sat down this morning with all my various note books, cards, spreadsheets, charts and other spurious bits and bobs and started transferring and reinventing this into my bullet journal. So far my bullet journal holds:
- My core values
- Financial details, coded passwords and website names
- Daily and weekly disciplines, tasks and new habit forming tasks
- Faith-based cyclic readings
- Debt reduction charts and trackers
- Savings charts and trackers
- Weight loss tracker
- Page-per-week and daily bullet tasks
|.....transferring and reinventing all my stuff into the bullet journal.|
That is just the start - I will be including plenty of other stuff too as it becomes meaningful during the year. The type of things I will include are
- I want to learn a new piece of music every month once I get my reed organ
- I also want to bit by bit go through and refurbish my old piano - its a big job I can chunk down into diarised tasks to tick off.
- Going through the scores of boxes in the shed - box at a time. If I diarise the task it will get done.
- Ramping up my eBay selling item by item - again diarisable and thus achievable.
- Ramping up the frequency of blog posts
I am a 'list' guy - if it is on the list it is 95% guaranteed of getting done (as long as the list is not too stupidly long). One of the good things about bullet journaling is that after 3 transfers of a task you need to take it off your task list as it obviously is not that important - this discipline forces simplification and prioritisation.

Anyways.....just thought I would share with you all, just for fun.
Do you do something similar I wonder? Any great ideas for my bullet journal would be much appreciated.
Take care folks and stay nice.
