BULLET JOURNAL SUPPLIES: FOR BEGINNERS

 

– Unbelievably expensive pens…

– Fancy bags for supplies…

THIS BLOG POST is for YOU if you don’t want to spend much just to LEARN if Bullet Journaling works.

WHAT BULLET JOURNAL TO CHOOSE?
  
Medium size fits my hand well when I’m writing. 
 

This journal comes with pre-numbered pages 😍 which OMG – such a time saver!

 

It has a greater number of pages (249 pages) than other journals you will see in this post.

 
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. 
 
(Pictures are clickable) 
 
 
Ultimately, it boils down to if you prefer dotted or blank paper.
 
(Pictures are clickable) 
 
Lemome is known for thick pages.
 
It comes with 120gsm paper which means you should have a little-zero show-through. 
 

 

To my mind, it’s among the BEST Journal to start with because:

   – Minimum show-through if you happen to get clumsy with pens;

   – Not as expensive as the first Journal;

   – It has everything you need except for the pre-numbered pages.

 

It’s up for you to decide whether you’re willing to pay extra and have the individually numbered pages

(Leuchtturm1917), or pay less and get your Lemome.

SUPPLIES

 

 

               Faber Castell Grip HB Pencil

This pencil is very popular among experienced users.

 

HB stands for hard and black nature of the lead. See the scale below.

 

 

HB is the most suitable for writing and kind of “one-size-fits-all”.

 

Let me explain.

 

When I was studying at the Art School, they always told me:

 

       “If you unsure, go for HB”.

 

GRIP in the name stands for the pencil’s body which prevents it from slipping out of your hands.

 

So, I recommend this one as it is quite standard to start with and easy to use.

             Faber Castell Pencil Eraser


A good eraser that does not produce much dust.

              Pilot G2 0.38 Black Pen 

These pens are perfect for drawing because gel dries quickly.

 

They do not leave ‘drag marks’ from your hands.

 

They are extremely easy to use: you don’t need to press down hard to get the result you want to.

 

In my experience, the majority of Bullet Journalists use these pens.

 

You can start with it as a default option and learn what you need.

            Muji Point Black Pens


Still, there are some people who prefer Muji over Pilot G2 0.38 Pens.

 

If you don’t like Pilot for some reason, you can go for Muji pens.

 

They seem a bit brighter on paper and can smudge slightly more than Pilot G2 0.38 Pens.

 

There is no dramatic difference between them, but…

 

I would recommend starting out with Pilot G2 0.38 Pens as they are easier to use.

 

(Pictures are clickable)

 

An example of how Muji writes:

 

 

 

              Plastic Transparent Ruler

The only requirement for a ruler is that it has to be transparent.

 

It’s simply more convenient when you can see where and what you are drawing.

 

With this link you should get two rulers: 12 Inches and 6 Inches

 

(Pictures are clickable)

 

That’s it.

 

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

 

When (and if) you get more certain about Bullet Journaling, check more advanced tools here.

 

If you’re still not entirely sure WHAT’S NEXT?

 

I KNOW THE FEELING.

 

I FELT THE SAME WHEN I JUST STARTED.

 

That’s why I wrote, A Practical Guide How to Start A Bullet Journal.

 

Look inside and decide if it’s for you.

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

  • Time-managements hacks to optimize time AKA who doesn’t want to accomplish more in a day?
⠀
Time-management, you said? Such a buzzy word.
⠀
I know: You tried a bunch of things, and not sure if another technique is going to work for you…
⠀
Let me tell you, if your current methods aren’t driving you toward your goals, you need to try something different:
⠀
● 3 focus things
Most of us spend too much time on what’s urgent and not enough time on what’s important. That’s why before creating my to-dos, I ask myself:
⠀
“If I do just these three things, will I move closer to my goal?”
⠀
I’m currently doing that for business only but also considering applying it to my personal life.
⠀
[Let’s keep it real, some days are purely about biz, and we don’t get to do 3 (!) personal things 😃]
⠀
● Assign priorities
Next to each task I put a number referring to the importance of it. Obviously first three things are my focus tasks:
⠀
¹ FOCUS 1
² FOCUS 2
³ FOCUS 3
⠀
If I don’t manage to get to the ‘10’, I don’t panic as it’s number 10 for a reason. If it were critical, I would have assigned a higher number to it. The 10th then simply moves to the next day
⠀
● Ignore
There are activities, people and events I ignore. Very impolite and ruthless, huh? BUT. To move forward, I need to leave things behind. It’s impossible to open new doors when you’re not able to kiss goodbye to things that don’t serve you.
⠀
Which one would you apply to your daily routine?
⠀
If you’re reading this thinking: “Hm, sounds great, but how can I incorporate it into my routine?” Book a free chat with me, I’d love to help. See you in my DM! ⠀

  • “How do they make time for EVERYTHING while I…
⠀
- post on IG very last moment
- have taken a week to reply to a friend on WhatsApp
- don’t remember last time I went to the gym”
⠀
Look, I’ve finally come to understand that NO ONE HAS TIME FOR EVERYTHING. ‘Doing everything’ comes down to PRIORITIZATION.
⠀
We think we know what’s important to us. Good. But if you don’t invest in it daily, can you really call it ‘important’?
⠀
This question I had to ask myself when I was telling everyone that my health is my number one priority but I didn’t make time to either go to the gym or choose full nutrition meals.
⠀
You can tell any narratives you want, but in the end it’s ‘WHAT YOU DO’ that defines you.
⠀
I have three non-negotiable activities that I do no matter what:
⠀
- Business (split into sub-priorities)
- Sports (3 x week) + healthy eating
- Family (being in touch with my parents every day) + friends who are like family
⠀
What are your non-negotiable activities?

  • I used to be a yes girl! Not in a weird sense but that it was hard for me to say No to opportunities.
⠀
Why would I? I wanted to do it ALL! I was not going to miss my boat! Huh? Familiar?
⠀
Some people are struggling with STARTING. My problem was with STOPPING 😂or better put - consciously pausing.
⠀
If someone asked me, Do you want to give a speech at this event?
⠀
I’d rush to say YES! There will be so many opportunities right? How can I turn it down?
⠀
And I couldn’t.
⠀
FOMO kicked in, and I just couldn’t say NO to the apparent things in life that came my way. Funnily, I could easily say NO to the most fundamental, highly important things.
⠀
We’re always saying NO to something. Even now, saying YES to writing this post, I’m saying NO to a script for my next YT video.
⠀
Both are important but having the 9-to-5 for which you have to travel while managing your business and hopping on the calls with clients, guess what. I learned to PRIORITIZE.
⠀
How hard is it for you to say NO?

  • Why set goals if we live in VUCA world?
⠀
VUCA = Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous.
⠀
It means that circumstances change, your values change, and YOUR GOALS change too. Everything is temporary.
⠀
How many of you knew that I wrote a bestseller book on bullet journal method?
⠀
Now, how many of you knew that I don’t bullet journal any longer because my lifestyle changed?
⠀
Bullet journaling can be time-consuming when you have to draw all the spreads, trackers and design on your own.
⠀
I started my own business, and if you want your business to grow and become an empire, you gotta prioritize it.
⠀
I could still MAKE time, but I outgrew my objective before I reached it. ⠀
So, I won’t become a Bullet Journal Queen. I’ll take it. But my book still helps people who want to start a bullet journal which I’m absolutely grateful for.
⠀
In the meantime, I’ve shifted my direction and created an innovative product called Journal for Busy People.
⠀
If you are always on the go and feel like you could have achieved MUCH MUCH MORE, have you had a better structure to your day (which actually starts with your goals), check out the Journal for Busy People. Link in bio.

  • WHAT’S STOPPING YOU FROM REACHING YOUR FULL POTENTIAL?
⠀
Hey, remember the law of inertia: “An object at rest will remain at rest until something causes it to move”?
⠀
So, what causes us to move?
⠀
GOALS. GOALS. GOALS.
⠀
No. Do not just jump into setting your goals. Read on first.
⠀
There’s the whole process to goal setting which starts with…
⠀
Understanding yourself. (As everything meaningful in life, right?)
⠀
I think it’s Tony Robbins who said “Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.”
⠀
The context he put this into was ‘asking others’ but we’re going to apply it to ‘ASKING OURSELVES’.
⠀
Asking better questions will help clearly define lasting and purposeful goals. Behind those goals there will always be a strong WHY (aka your core values, reasons and principles).
⠀
So, now you know where to start? :) If you need a partner to help you get clarify on your goals so that you can stop questioning “How can I achieve more in life?” because you actually will, send me a DM. Let's chat. 💚

  • “I know WHAT I want but I’m not sure HOW to get there”.
⠀
This is what my clients / potential clients have told me. As you know, I’ve been talking to a handful of people for the past few days:
⠀
∙ They are ambitious, driven, and hard working.
∙ They are 100% ready to do the work.
∙ They have this CRAZY SCARY dream they want to turn into reality (ASAP).
⠀
Yet, they feel directionless. They literally say, “I feel like I’m busy but not accomplishing much”.
⠀
I asked them: “Why?”
⠀
They do NOT have a proper system in place to move them where they want to be.
⠀
By ‘system’ I mean a clear structure to set goals and arrange To-Do lists.
⠀
Picture a productivity system that works specifically for you so when you wake up, you get down directly to your tasks so you can actually achieve your goals.
⠀
Just imagine how much TIME you can SAVE! (and pain of not following through with your goals).
⠀
If that sounds like you; if you want to build that system for yourself. Go ahead and download my FREE guide. Link in bio. You’ll find the answers there.
