The Bullet Journal Method: Track the Past, Order the Present, Design the Future Reviews
I first heard of this book from an insanely talented Youtuber, called Boho Berry. If you have an interest in bullet journaling then you are probably already familiar with her beautiful daily spreads, extensive collections, and the gorgeous artwork and lettering that she creates with seeming ease. Each of her videos exudes productivity and I watched her videos longing to emulate her success.
I started my own bullet journal and promptly neglected it, finding dissatisfaction in how it didn't measure ...more
First and foremost, I'm a huge fan of bullet journaling. I picked it up at the end of 2017 and have used the method for all of 2018. It has been immensely helpful, it's gotten me to consider and plan my days on paper, in a medium that encourages thoughtful engagement with what I'm doing and wanting to do. There's no just dumping everything into the electronic black hole with this method. I love it and am eager to keep on using it for years to come.
However, I picked up just about everything I kno ...more
I love this book! It's been so helpfull! I'll use some of the ideas in my journal. Thanks to the inventor and writer of this book Ryder Carroll.
I tried bullet journaling earlier this year and pretty much crashed and burned with it. I've been wanting to try it again, though, and I think after reading this book I have a much better chance at being successful. I know that as I get started with it in 2019 I will be referring back to this often as a manual and it will decrease my frustration. I also liked that Ryder really stressed that your BuJo does not have to be super creative and beautiful like so many you see online. The most important ...more
This is one of those rare books that is both practical and inspiring. I appreciate how the author not only offers you a method of organizing your life and mind, but also offers you a thoughtful and intriguing take on why it matters. Ryder has synthesized an amazing range of knowledge about mindfulness and productivity. Sometimes you find just the right book at the right time in your life. I think for many people distraction has become a way of life-it certainly has for me. I feel gratef ...more
At the beginning of this book there's a scene, allegedly something that actually happened, in which a bullet journal dramatically saves a child's life.
Still, she had the presence of mind to pull out a well-worn, thread-bound book that is quite familiar to me: it was an orchid-colored, soft-covered Leuchtturm 1917. It was a Bullet Journal. Grasping the last few pages, she threaded them away from the threaded spine and held them out to the EMT... she shook her head and sobbed, "I can't... I can't ...more
For me, needed more David Allen and less Oprah. Skimmed the Oprah, really enjoyed the David Allen. Worth a read.
As a list-maker of many decades standing, I thought this book would be utterly useless and wouldn't add anything to my organisational methods. Actually, it's excellent. I've realised that I don't do nearly enough pruning of my tasks, I let distractions get in the way of overall plans and with a few simple tweaks and improvements suggested here, I could make my journal much more useful and productive. Thank you Ryder.
