For a growing number of people, the beginning of a year means starting a new bullet journal! Not familiar with a bullet journal? It’s an analog way of tracking habits, cataloging your calendar, goals, to-do lists, and anything else you want to note in one consolidated place. I tend to write important things on random post-its which never ends well, so I’m trying this bullet journal thing for the second year in a row. I admittedly lost steam with my bullet journal halfway through 2017, but will try to keep it going through out the year this year!
Bullet journals originated from Ryder Carroll. The main components of most bullet journals include: Index, Future Logs, Monthly Views, Daily Views.
Here are some pictures of my current bullet journal are below. I’m letting go of perfection and comparison on my bullet journal or else I’ll never use it!

This year, I plan to try my hand at some doodling, but won’t get too caught up in designing my pages because that’s not my wheelhouse. I do plan to do monthly trackers, logs tracking info such as the titles of books I’ve read, seasonal bucket lists, birthday/holiday tracking, intention setting, etc. I’m not a regular journaler, but love writing down to-do lists, thoughts, goals, ideas, among other things on a regular basis to aid in my productivity and keeping track of important information.
Here’s some bullet journal inspiration if you are still on the fence with starting your own and want some visual inspiration. There are also countless videos on YouTube, just do a search and fall down a rabbit hole of prettily designed bullet journal pages!
