Creator Ryder Carroll describes the Bullet Journal as the analog system for the digital age, and it is exactly that: a quick, simple to use system that requires only a notebook and a pen to help us organize our busy modern lives.
Carroll provides a great overview to learn about Bullet Journaling and how to get started here. Many people have expanded on, adapted, and made this system their own; one of my favorites being Boho Berry. It is this the level of personalization that really attracted me to this system. You see, like many women with TS, I struggle at times with executive function and focusing, and I discovered in high school that planning helped me with this. In high school and college student assignment notebooks kept me on task. After college, however, these notebooks no longer worked for me, and typical day planners were boring and restrictive. The Bullet Journal system provided the keys to create a system that worked for me, and that allowed constant change for my busy life.
Having a system that I am able to customize so easily for whatever I need at the time has made sure I use it. I feel so much more on top of things, and I always know what I have done and what still needs to be done which has helped keep me focus and organized. I have been much more productive since I began using this system, and looking pack at prior weeks I can see my improvement. If you’re looking for a way to keep track of your busy life, I highly recommend giving this system a try.
