New York Times bestseller!
There’s a reason this system for time management, goal setting, and intentional living has been adopted by millions around the globe: it works. Not only will you get more done, but you’ll get the right things done. All you need is a pen, paper, and five spare minutes a day.
In The Bullet Journal Method, Ryder Carroll, the system’s founder, provides an essential guide to avoiding all-too-common beginner mistakes and building a core discipline from which you can personalize your practice. You’ll not only learn to organize your tasks, but to focus your time and energy in pursuit of what's truly meaningful to you by following three simple steps:
* Track the past. Create a clear and comprehensive record of your thoughts.
* Order the present. Find daily calm and clarity by tackling your to-do list in a more mindful, systematic, and productive way.
* Design the future. Transform your vague curiosities into meaningful goals, and then break those goals into manageable action steps that lead to big change.
Whether you’re a frustrated list maker, an overwhelmed multitasker, or a creative who needs some structure, The Bullet Journal Method will help you go from passenger to pilot of your own life.
Up There With Getting Things Done
Ryder Carroll’s system takes a minute to grasp, but is simple in design. It’s a reliable framework to keep what matters within your awareness. Take a few months and give it a go. Eventually, you’ll feel some sense of relief as you can immediately flip to what matters and not try to remember what app or digital product where you saved that tidbit. It’s a great kit and easy to bash into your specific needs. For example, my “stack” includes a weekly log and a dedicated index for work projects. This process evolves through use and you’ll find your unique expression of the Bulet Journal method.
I am on my 4th journal and 4th year of journaling and this whole book was an AHA moment. I was constantly going to Pinterest for “Bujo Inspiration” or spreads that might serve me only to be left wanting. My 3rd journal was starting to feel like another chore, but I love feeling pen to paper so I kept at it just to keep my hands busy. Refreshing myself with the true purpose (the why) of why I wanted to start a Bullet Journal in the first place was just what I needed and I feel so much better already. When in doubt strip it down, “less but better”. So glad I spent this money!
