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.

 

(Pictures are clickable)

 

 

         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.

 

(Pictures are clickable)

 

 

 

         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.

 

(Pictures are clickable)

 

 

         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

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.
