Having a bullet journal allows you to write down all your appointments and lists in one place. You can also keep an eye on your habits, moods, housework, spending … whatever you need to. It’s a great place to track how your goals are progressing too.
You can make your journal as simple or as fancy as you like. It’s your journal to do whatever you want. You can change your mind along the way if necessary. Not every page or spread has to be the same each time, so you can experiment with different styles.
Sometimes you might want to expand on an event in your journal, and that’s perfectly ok. You can just make a quick note in your weekly or daily spread, then reference it to the page where you have written more about it. This is one reason why a bullet journal has page numbers and an index.
It’s not just a diary, it’s a planner too. You can create a “Future Log” of upcoming dates, create birthday calendars, make a note of your goals, brainstorm blog post ideas, or plan for something specific like a holiday.
Unlike a pre-printed planner, a bullet journal adapts with you. You create the pages and spreads as you need them, assigning them the space they need. You create the index as you go, which makes keeping track so simple.
