My daily and yearly planners for 2020 and 2021 didn't fare too well.
We all experienced how unproductive scheduling anything during a world pandemic could be.
Thankfully the global madness seems to be dissipating.
I went to my local bookshop to give it a go again.
There's something very attractive about having a simple and concise way of planning your day and your life. For me, it's inspirational. It opens up possibilities and puts me in the flow-zone. It helps me to connect dots and ideas and becomes a bird's eye-view of the many mad projects I'm involved in or initiate.
I remember someone saying you are becoming what you are today.
In the messiness of the current digital jungle, the Bullet Journal - which you actually write with your own hand...on paper...with a pen - is a breath of fresh air! It's a great way to see where I've come from and what I'm becoming.
Organic. Real. Inviting.
I'm not through the book yet. Ryder Carroll takes his time to explain the essence of Bullet journaling - the why and the how and the what of it all. I've decided to follow his lead, to take my time to mindfully and purposefully submerge myself into this.
The book is littered with bullets of wisdom - both his own soulful insights, and also hard-hitting quotes by others, like this one on page 107 by Peter Drucker:
"There is nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency something that should not be done at all"
I know I've been particularly effective at many things that should NEVER have been done MANY times in my life. Maybe you have been too?
I'm curious, have you tried the Bullet Journal Method? Has it helped you?
Or, what do you use to plan your life?
I'll keep you (and mostly myself), posted on how things are going.
