Bullet Journal - That's how you do it

All you need to get started with BuJo (Bullet journaling) is paper and a pen. This is a completely personal plan, no two books are the same. The problem, however, is that it is extremely easy to do but quite difficult to explain. You might think that it takes time and is cumbersome, but it really gets as complicated as you do it yourself. When you google about this, you are probably overwhelmed by all the colorful expressions and don't really know where to start. Begin initially with the creator Ryder Carroll's video.

We will now explain and try to answer what you should do, how you should do it and above all why you should do it. Based on this, you develop a book based on your needs. The purpose of the Bullet Journal is to make use of the two most important resources you have, your time and your energy. To identify what is important in your life and peel away the meaningless. This also applies to your very own book.

Index

On the first pages of the book, you can create an Index. The purpose of an Index is that you should be able to quickly find where things are in the book. However, many people skip this, partly because the need does not exist or because they choose to mark in other ways. There are lots of different ways to fill in. If you do this, it will be a rough summary of your life and can later be very fun to look back on.

A problem many people experience in their Bullet Journals is that it becomes so-called ghosting. That it shines through on the other side of the paper. The second is that pencils can bleed through paper. Pencils that are water-based generally do not bleed through. In our shop, 99.9% of the pens are water-based. That it ghosts largely depends on which book, pen and technology you have.

Now we come to the excellence of method. The book will then be filled by:

- Something that you have to do, i.e. you have a task.
- Your experiences, i.e. things you want to remember, events.
- Information you don't want to forget, i.e. notes.

In other words, the book will turn into your external brain! It is filled with everything you need and need. As a result, each book is completely adapted to its own needs and no book is the same.

Symbols

Different forms of symbols are used to help. You can also convert these to what suits you or even ignore using them.

. Task

x Completed task (you simply put a cross over the above point)

> Migrated task This is used on the to do that you did not get done. You
take with you what you have not done through this mark and you never lose
delete something you write down. You always have to make a decision on each to-do on
your list. It is simply moved forward and you convert dot to >.

< Scheduled task The thing you were supposed to do was not done. You
however, choose to schedule it in the future instead. You kick it away
The future log for an occasion when it is better to solve a task.

o Event (Birthday party, dentist appointment, dinner)

– Note (a bit general remember. Emailed, ordered something, called someone,
the cat died, the bike was stolen).

Irrelevant task. You had something on your to-do that got cancelled. You
simply iron it out and get rid of it, for good. It can also be
so that you had a task that you constantly migrated list after list,
until the realization comes that it will never go away because you simply neither
need or want to do so. Clear the lists hard! Your life should be filled with
things that are important to you. Not a lot of irrelevant rambling that you got for
you that you are expected to do or others push you.

Daily log and/or Weekly log

If you google, check pinterest and instagram you will probably see incredibly beautiful weekly spreads drawn by hand on a conveyor belt. This is often where, in our experience, many people lose their way when it comes to this method. On the one hand, performance anxiety arises for all the nice things. On the one hand, many people experience this as a pointless method as people seem to sit and draw up calendars by hand.

What you must not forget is that everyone uses it differently and for many the function of tinkering fulfills an important part of therapy. It becomes like a creative hobby when you tinker and think things through at the same time.

What is important to remember is that each individual develops this with the Bullet Journal to what suits them. There is no right or wrong, but this is a method where you simply have paper and pencil and pour everything into one place.

For us, it's about a bird's eye view of the week, what should we focus on when and what should be prioritized. This, in turn, leads up to this very thing with a daily log where there is a mix of to-do and notes. Notes cover everything from diary to reflection

Own spreads

Do you have heavier to-do's on your list? Convert to your own spreads! For example, Christmas. If it says Plan Christmas on a to-do, it becomes an easy chicken coop. Or cleaning the garage. It will be too big. Each Task must simply be converted into manageable tasks, this is done through own lookups.
