How the Bullet Journal Stopped Me Lying to Myself
"Here is how it works: you take a blank notebook, any blank notebook. You can, if you wish, buy a special one, but the notebook isn’t the point – the Bullet Journal is a method, not an object. You number the pages as you go along, having set aside a few pages at the front that over time become your contents list. Then each month you handwrite a calendar called the “monthly log” followed by a “daily log” of tasks, events and notes, marked respectively by bullet points, circles and dashes. Each day you manually cross out tasks you have completed and then rewrite the undone ones for the next day. "

5 bullet journal myths debunked
"You see, a bullet journal is whatever you want it to be because it’s customized just by you. Your bullet journal starts out as a blank notebook, and you’re the one to map out your layouts. You decide what your calendar looks like. You’re the one to claim a two-page spread for your ever-growing book list. You’re the one to figure out what kind of chart would motivate you most for exercising regularly. Or if you should skip it altogether because it would just stress you out. You’re the one designing an organizational system that fits your life right now."
