WHAT IS BULLET JOURNAL? 

 

Bullet Journal (BuJo) is best described as mindfulness practice disguised as a productivity system. 

It’s designed to help you organize your what while you remain aware of your why. 

 

The goal of the Bullet Journaling is to help its practitioners (bullet journalists) live intentional lives, ones that are productive and meaningful. 

  Ryder Carroll 

HOW CAN JOURNALING HELP?

  • By journaling you activate certain brain cells that are responsible for your consciousness;
  • You start realizing how much you actually have in life;
  • You start your journey to self-discovery: yes you can be organized, productive and driven; 
  • You learn to put things in perspective;
  • You train positive thinking as you know: You have things to be grateful for
  • You boost your brain efficiency and make it search for solutions (to me, this was key); 
 
Later I’ll show you How.
 
EXAMPLES OF JOURNALS 
 

#1. LEUCHTTRUM1917 HARDCOVER MEDIUM DOTTED JOURNAL

(Pictures are clickable) 
 
This is a cheaper friend  of Leuchttrum1917.
 
I’ve recently discovered this one for myself, and I think it’s decent.
 
The only thing that does concern me is non-numbered pages.

Lemome is known for thick pages.
 
It comes with 120gsm paper which means you should have a little-zero show-through. 
 
Now, let’s have a look at HOW BULLET JOURNAL CAN HELP?
 
Here are some ideas: 
  • Keep To-Do Lists
  • Keep Schedules
  • Track Habits / Mood / Finance / Sleep 
  • Practice gratitude 
  • Make notes
  • Write food diary
  • Track / set goals
  • Write down your intuitions / random thoughts
 
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU? 
 

1. FREE YOUR BRAIN CAPACITY 

There is only a limited number of decisions a human can take in a day on par with a limited number of things one can remember. Why to increase your stress level by trying to memorize every single thing?

 

Just put it in your Bullet Journal as

  • To-Do list
  • Reminders
  • Your intuitions 
 

2. LEARN ABOUT YOURSELF 

Without a well-developed self-awareness, odds are you take the wrong decision now and have to deal with circumstances later. A bad decision is still better than no decision (IMHO), but WHY if you can avoid that by journaling? 

Imagine this, because you lack clarify on what you want, you take on a job that doesn’t fit you. Once you realize it, you’ll have to go through the tiring selection process again…

Were you journaling, you could have been able to delve deeper and understand what it is you really want.

 

3. FLEXIBLE 

If you don’t want to use Bullet Journal for schedules, you can use it to reflect on the day. 

If you’re busy, you can spent 5 minites journaling today. 

If you still think that you’re too busy, download an app called Space (it’s free on Android) and see HOW MUCH time you spend on your phone. I was shocked to learn that I spend 2h 26 min a day on my phone! 

Btw, BuJo can help you track that and minimize! 😏

 

IS JOURNALING EXPENSIVE? 

In total, you’ll invest $ 19.68 + Journal on your preference.

I made a blog post on what exactly you need to start. If you’re interested, click here

If you got curious but still not sure where to start?

I KNOW. It can be slightly overwhelming in the beginning. 

Let me offer my help to you. Look inside my book, “A Practical Guide How to Start a Bullet Journal”

 

There you’ll find some insights on how to set up your first Journal. 

Anyways, feel free to hit me up on IG @tianamcboz to share what you think. I’d love to get in touch with you. 

 

DON’T FORGET YOUR THREE FREE SESSIONS ON HOW TO SET GOALS

  • As someone who is into planning, I reflected on my 2019 and planned for 2020 already in November 😆🙈
⠀
Only on the 5th of January I sat down to transfer it all to my #journalforbusypeople though
⠀
But I did not.
⠀
Instead - I simplified it drastically based on three key principles:
⠀
x1: What does Tiana really want?
⠀
x2: What are the most important categories I want to develop myself in? (Reduced from 8 to 5)
⠀
x3: What are three important goals in each category? (Reduced from 5 or 7 to 3)
⠀
Wrote it down. Put it on my whiteboard. Now busy executing.
⠀
How are you getting on with your 2020 goals?
.⠀

  • Do you make promises for the next year?
⠀
My friend gave me an awesome idea: "Why don't we try to take things lighter in 2020?"
⠀
- Do you see fewer results than expected and get disappointed?
⠀
- Someone didn't call you back as promised?
⠀
- You manager / client didn't treat you properly?
⠀
Take it at least one degree lighter than you typically do. Take everything with humor and don't take yourself and your life too seriously.
⠀
HOW?
⠀
My friend has a great way of approaching it:
⠀
Imagine you are an observer. You're looking at your life from the outside. It's not really you who has a leading role, it's someone else. You're just watching.
⠀
Being detached allows you to still make sensible decisions without being too emotional or sensitive about what has happened.
⠀
Shall we try starting from today?

  • I get an incredible level of satisfaction when I cross out the tasks in my #journalforbusypeople Link in bio.
⠀
I only get such a sense of achievement when I take the time to plan my year and then one-by-one tick off the tasks as 'done'.
⠀
How many of you are planning your year ahead?

  • Only 19 days are left till 2020.
⠀
This is the time of the year when I reflect on what 2019 brought and plan for 2020.
⠀
In my Journal for Busy People I structure my goals and brainstorm on the direction I plan to take.
⠀
2019 was the first year when I wrote everything down. Before I was relying on my memory.
⠀
And you know what I discovered?
⠀
Having access to my thinking one year back though my journal helped me see what areas of my life need my attention. For me, it's Finance and Health.
⠀
It helped me see what type of goal setting doesn't work for me, where my priorities are and who Tiana is as a person.
⠀
I feel much more powerful and in control of my own life. I know where I am going and own my choices.
⠀
If for 2019 my motto was: "Create and elevate". For 2020, I've chosen: "Act intentionally".
⠀
To me, it means a lot of things:
⠀
- choose people I surround myself with intentionally;
- eat intentionally;
- spend money intentionally;
- react to what others do or say intentionally;
- love intentionally.
⠀
I consciously choose not to follow the crowd but stand by my own values and beliefs. I came to that realization predominantly with a help of journaling.
⠀
That's why I really encourage you to explore conscious goal setting and journaling.
⠀
One way to do it is with Journal for Busy People. It's my baby :) the product I created and 100% stand by. I thought I was self-aware. No not really. Just now I'm feeling that my life started moving in the right direction.
⠀
I invite you to take a look at the Journal on Amazon US. Check it out - link in bio -, and if you don't like it, I'm happy to give you a refund :)

  • 49 days till 2020. Sh"""t. I haven't achieved all my goals.
⠀
Familiar?
⠀
Not to me.
⠀
1st of January is just another day.
⠀
True. It's a nice excuse to structure your thoughts and take the moment to reflect.
⠀
But the reality is - you can start ANY DAY.
⠀
1st of January is just a continuation. It's not a pill that is going to sort things out.
⠀
Life goes on and is not measured from year to year but by steps that we take every day to enrich our lives with meaningful events and changes from within.
.⠀
.
.⠀
Do you agree?

  • Walking through picturesque windmills in Zaandam I'm realizing that life is not about strategy. It's not about working harder, posting more or constantly wishing for a better future.
⠀
It's about the present moment, and I'm lucky enough to be able to make those moments meaningful:
⠀
✨ I'm realizing that I'm working hard not because I have to but because it's boring otherwise.
⠀
✨ I'm writing my goals and vision in my #journalforbusypeople not because it's cool to set goals but because honestly - I LOVE IT!
⠀
✨ I'm practicing gratitude and saying what I truly feel because it makes my heart so full that it can explode.
.⠀

.⠀
What would you do if you could do ANYTHING?
.⠀
.
.⠀
I've created a separate account for my Journal for Busy People. It's @busyjournal - if you were looking for a productivity journal, take a glimpse!
