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.

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.

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.

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.

  • Do you take enough risks?
⠀
I was watching "Bohemian Rhapsody" when the idea crossed my mind that we live our lives on a luke-warm level.
⠀
No, I don't mean drugs, mess and rock&roll 😃
⠀
Here's what I mean saying "luke-warm level"
⠀
🔹 Someone holds back their feelings
🔹 Another person never speaks up for herself
🔹 And you, yes you, maybe you don't set ambitious goals?
⠀
We are all slightly terrified to take initiative in our lives because it's not easy.
⠀
I'm scared too. What drives me to be proactive though is that everything in life is temporary. If YOU don't take it, someone else will. If YOU don't do it now, the moment is gone.
⠀
The first step to change is, to understand what it is you truly want and what direction you are heading.
⠀
Do you always know what you want in life?

  • Life is not a sprint, it's a marathon.
⠀
✨We see this successful businessman whose life looks impeccable.
✨We think that this mega-popular athlete didn't live through regular bone-brushing drills.
✨We look at these influential speakers and think they were born like this.
⠀
It all looks easy and perfect but LIFE DOESN'T OFFER YOU THINGS IN THESE NEAT PACKAGES.
⠀
The progress is so messy.
⠀
And it's made of little mundane and unsexy things that get done every day in private.
⠀
It's especially hard when you don't see an immediate return:
⠀
🔹When I choose to work on weekends when everyone else is out having fun.
🔹When I set tight boundaries on my time and high standards for the people around.
🔹When I spend this hour boxing, but that cheesecake is too tempting.
⠀
Trust me, it's NOT easy for me. I'm not any different from you.
⠀
So, let's remember for the next time —
⠀
These little things do compound over time and result in a very different body, relationships, business, and lifestyle.
⠀
Don't undervalue your marathon because if you stay in your lane, you'll succeed.

  • How to STOP drifting through life?
⠀
👉If you've ever been uncertain about what you want;
👉If you've ever felt lost in life;
👉If you've ever drifted without any direction...
⠀
Chances are, we'll get along.
⠀
I know how it feels. I drifted too, and my favorite way was...
⠀
If I had an idea, I couldn’t sleep till I get it done. But once it's done, I’m like, why did I do it in the first place? 🤔
⠀
Because I was clueless about my direction. It felt like I was busy doing nothing.
⠀
And like you, I was wondering what's the solution?
⠀
I transformed Kanban (a well-known tool in Project Management invented at Toyota) into Tanban (Tiana + Kanban😜) to help me
⠀
✔️overcome endless planning and never actually doing,
✔️move into "mindful doing" as opposed to doing things randomly,
✔️understand my WHY,
✔️complete my projects.
⠀
In practice, it enabled me to
✔️write a best-seller book;
✔️launch my website;
✔️balance my social life and business...
⠀
And not only that...
⠀
If you want to explore more, you're always welcomed to my website. Link in bio.

If not, tell me then,
What's your favorite way of "drifting"? And how do you cope?

  • Today at work I got asked, What my New Year resolutions are?
⠀
To me, New Year resolutions are just another name for my goals, and the 1st of January is just another day.
⠀
I set my goals in December and started working on them straight.
⠀
There is no such a thing like "I will start from the 1st of Jan" because it means I'm here just to procrastinate.
⠀
Good things don't come to those who wait in this case.
⠀
Have an idea? Act on it.
