What is a Bullet Journal?
Bullet Journaling is a method to get personally organised designed by Ryder Carroll. In his words the bullet journal is meant ‘to help you track the past, organise the present, and plan for the future’.
The basic concept behind the bullet journal is simple and easy. The main idea is that you jot down quick notes instead of writing long sentences.
The system helps you organise, schedule, brainstorm, set goals, track, write to do lists & other organisational tasks all in one single notebook. The fancy designs and layouts are all extras that you can add to personalise your bullet journal.
