Why Start A Professional Bullet Journal - My Own Stationery

You may have heard of Bullet Journalling. The basic concept was launched by Ryder Carroll in 2013. All you need is a notebook and a pen and away you go.

A “Bujo” doesn’t have to be complicated; in fact, the original system is the least time consuming and simplest method of keeping on top of your life and tasks. If at the end of a busy day you don’t feel like you are accomplishing anything then keeping a bullet journal could change your life.

Reason #1: Rapid logging

The idea behind a bullet journal is that in a fast-paced work environment you can log tasks quickly and easily. Without needing to find the right page or the right notebook, all of your tasks and “to do's” are together in one place. All you need is a key that you are comfortable with and you can keep all of your tasks together. At the end of each day, tasks which didn’t get completed can be migrated to the next day. If there is no set deadline, add them to your monthly goals. This way you don’t get bogged down, feeling like you have accomplished nothing at the end of a busy day. You even have a set of tasks ready to start the next day without having to overthink anything.

Reason #2: Flexibility

Bullet journals can be started in literally any notebook. If you get too caught up in it you could spend hours searching for the right notebook; researching the ghosting of different pens on different paper. For those of us with busy lives trying to find productivity, this seems counter-productive. The point is that any notebook will do if you are following Ryder Carroll’s original, super-productive, simple guidelines. However, if you're looking to earn brownie points at work, you might think about getting yourself a personalised notebook complete with your company branding on the front. When you start logging your actions in meetings not only will it look very impressive, it could prompt a whole new movement in the office, as well as lead to a more productive life for you.

Why not try Bullet Journalling in 2018 and see how your productivity increases and your stress levels decrease.
