Bullet journal – have you heard of it? I would be surprised if you had.
Most successful people lead extraordinary and busy lives, using a multitude of tools.
With all of the tools at your disposal, it can become daunting just to figure out which one works best for which aspect of your life.
But with a bullet journal you don't have to have a million tools. You just need one.
Intro To A Bullet Journal
Now for those who claim, “Oh it's not electronic. It'll never work.”
I'm here to tell you that studies (some even mentioned in the Guardian) have found it's better for you to go analog for this kind of thing than digital.
Not only that, but when you check out their about page, you learn that this system is an evolving, adaptable practice that is specific to your life needs. It's meant to be curated and developed into what works best for you.
I know that when I began use of their system in a regular spiral bound notebook it made my life so much easier and I felt like I got way more done! (Talk about being productive.)
And while the getting started with a bullet journal is extremely helpful, I know some people are also visual or auditory learners. So here are some of the videos and/or explanations outlining the process as well found in the Bullet Journaling 101 section of their site.

(You just might have to tweak your strategy.)
As you're watching this video,
hearing these words,
and seeing how this could be of benefit,
you may be feeling excitement on
how you could create your own.
I spent a LOT of time watching how
other BuJo (bullet journal) users
set up their notebooks, then took
my time to figure out how I wanted
to set up my January 2018.
I am now keeping a Facebook
photo album for the setup of 2017 here.
Collections – great for organizing lists, classes, projects, etc
Threading – when collections span multiple sections of your bullet journal

The Bullet Journal FAQ
What I love most is that with this system, you don't have to have a million to do lists and it's quick & simple. A bullet journal allows you to stay focused & organized in this fast paced technical world and still stays modern.
You can organize your life into chunks by month, week, and even your day! Yet you are not restricted to certain pages.
It literally is an open book and I am so thankful a friend showed this system to me.
And while it may seem like a lot of effort to do some of this? It's meant to be that way so you are forced to take time and determine if what you have on your “to do” list is worth it.
Have a prosperous rest of your day!
Oh and one more thing … The creator of the bullet journal also did a TED talk. I share it with you here.
