COLOR PENS

          Zebra Mild pack

What is critical when it comes to choosing pens for BuJo is that they should not bleed.

 

They should still be bright but do not bleed through the page. 

 

These pens below are relatively bright and don’t bleed (almost).

        Zebra Neon pack

The above set fits my style better, but if you have certain creative ideas in mind

 

where these pens could help, go ahead and get the neon set.

         A bigger set of Zebra Pens

A set of 5 pens might do for you; but if you paint a lot, you might want to get a set of 15 pens.  

 

They are double ended: there are a highlighter side and a pointed side of the same color.

 

I personally think they are good for headliners, they are thick so do not expect fine lines with them.

       Planner Pens

A set of 18 pens. They are fine and smooth.

 

They bleed more than the pens shown above or below (i.e., Zebra and Micron) but not very badly.

 

I would go again for them if I needed particular colors. 

 

(FYI: I don’t do creative layouts anymore:))

             Micron Pens

A set of 8 pens. They are known for not fading away but staying for a long time.

 

They are very smooth. It goes not get ruined when you go over with a marker.

         Tanmit Pens

These pens are known for their unique and bright colors.

 

You will get a whole variety to choose from.

 

They are smooth and easy to use but they may bleed a little, especially if you use the ‘brush’ side.

WHITE PENS

 

       Uni Ball White Pens

The most important feature of the white pens is they should be able to write over anything.

 

These pens can; they are bright enough and dry out easily.

BLACK PENS

 

            Pigma Micron Drawing Pen Set

This set gets handy when you sketch and need different thickness: ultra fine and thicker.

 

These pens are waterproof and lightfast (which Micron is known for).

 

They smudge only slightly when you touch your writing right away,

 

but honestly it does not completely ruin your writing.

 

If you go over with a marker right after, it does not smudge though.

 

Be aware that the nibs are not refillable.

          Faber Castell Pitt Pen

This set also comes in different thickness: ultra fine and thicker.

 

It does not bleed through the page and does not smudge.

 

I think this is what distinguishes them from the other sets.

 

If you touch your writing right away, it will not smudge at all.

 

Be aware that the nibs are not refillable.

         Copic Multiliner Pens

They do not bleed through the page.

 

When you go over with a marker or touches your writing,

 

you may need to wait a bit till it dries out.

 

Otherwise, it gets ruined. They have refillable and replaceable nibs.

 

Thus, they are more expensive but could be cheaper in the long run.

PENCILS

          Faber-Castel Graphite Sketch Set (includes metal sharpener and dust-free eraser)

 

(Pictures are clickable)

At some point, I realized that I need a greater variety of pencils I was using at that time.

 

 

I like minimalist designs, but I also had moments when I felt like sketching, drawing… 

 

 

To emphasize all the shades, I need more than just HB (Hard and Black).

 

Sometimes I need to go a bit softer, so I choose for B (i.e., Blackness).

 

The higher the number is on the B side of the scale, the darker the mark will be.

 

The higher the number on the H side of the scale, the lighter the mark will be.

 

WASHI

 

You get a great variety on Amazon.

I personally like something simple and minimalist, like this one:

          Black-and-white washi

(Pictures are clickable)

For those who want more colors, here is the option:

           Cheerful washi

  • Do you at times feel that you're busy doing nothing?
⠀
I used to be someone who would set goals on the go because I'm a busy gal 😎 There was never enough time to pause and think about my direction.
⠀
That's why I would often pursue goals which after completion I wasn't even sure why I had started working on?
⠀
I wasted lots of time working on the things that didn't bring me any closer to my goals. Well, I wasn't even clear what my goals truly were...
⠀
I know, a lot of busy people are facing that too...
⠀
So, I asked myself, what's the solution for us? How I, having this crazy schedule, would squeeze in there setting meaningful goals & focusing on them daily?
⠀
I created the Journal for Busy People which helped me become more intentional with setting my goals.
⠀
I no longer waste my time and energy on chasing nice-to-have-goals. Instead, I focus on what I truly want and systematically work on achieving it.
⠀
Keeping this Journal helped me to... Launch it 😃 Yes I was mapping out my steps to creating this Journal in it. And it worked! I've literally made a journey from the idea to the product now being available on Amazon US!
⠀
What about you, how do you make sure that you're not busy doing nothing?

  • 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?

What is Journal for Busy People?
It’s a planner and goal-setting journal
⠀
What’s in it for you?
The Journal is unique because of its top-down approach which helps:

🔸 achieve your main goals
⠀
What does it mean?
✔️You’ll achieve your goals because you plan your today based on the main destinations you set.
✔️ You’ll develop healthy habits because you track them every day.
✔️ You’ll reduce anxiety because you plan mindfully.
✔️ You’ll get rid of the feeling that you’re busy doing nothing because you’ll know you’re doing meaningful tasks daily.

  • 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?
