Thank you to all of you for your kind words about my sad news. Knowing that so many people took the time to leave their warm wishes made me feel so lucky and loved. It has been a tough few weeks, but I am slowly getting back on my feet and back to business. Thank you!
I know that I am way overdue on announcing the winners of the Rhodia Goalbooks giveaway! Mea culpa. But...before I share, how about a few more pages from my Bullet Journal?
I think the best thing I did when I started Bullet Journaling was to create a color coding system:
- Black Pen: Structure (appointments, lines on the page, etc.)
- Red Pen: To Dos
- Blue Pen: Diary-style entries
This very simple color coding allows me to look at any page and immediately identify what is important, despite the chaos. I love it!
My Bullet Journal is a working document. It's not meant to be pretty. I don't stress about creating gorgeous lettering or amazing doodles or coordinating everything. These pages are alive and full of my messy life.
Overall, I continue to love my Bullet Journal. The weekly spreads that I've shared here have really kept me on track in terms of keeping all of my freelance projects on schedule. Moreover, I love knowing where my notes are. I've always scribbled notes -- from classes, from meetings, from phone calls -- onto a thousand random pieces of paper. What a delight to be able to open up my notebook and find them all in one place!
Truly, how did I live so long without a Bullet Journal keeping me organized?!
I realize that my enthusiasm for Bullet Journaling borders on the psychotic. The simple fact of the matter is, I had no idea that something so simple could make such a huge difference in my life. Even if you're a non-believer, read this article.
