Frank’s Finds 4: The Bullet Journal
Today let me tell you about my favorite method for organizing my personal notebook, The Bullet Journal. I was exposed to this system in college by a close friend, Dayton Beasley, and I have been using it for years.
First of all, if you don’t already, you need to keep a personal journal of some kind. All you need to do this is a notebook and a pen, doing so will help clear your mind and reduce stress, and pretty much every successful person in history kept some sort of journal. The Bullet Journal was developed for the modern world and is meant to provide you with a quick means for tracking tasks, events, and notes in your life. So, what are you waiting for?
Personally, I have tried digital notebooks such as Evernote with “meh” level success. However, having a physical book and writing instead of typing works far better and is much more feasible. I record workouts, keep a short list of things I’m grateful for, write the outlines for these finds, and keep notes and tasks organized all in one location.
So, thank you for reading! If nothing else, go out and buy a notebook right now (I personally use Moleskines, but grab whatever you like) and start writing things down. Then, after you’ve written some things and realized you’re a garbled mess, organize your notebook using the Bullet Journal.
