Today is Tuesday, the day when I share a resources I discover on the internet. The resource for today is called bullet journaling and I think it is a good resource for those of us who think visually.
I discovered this method while watching some ladies on youtube.com speaking about this particular topic. I had never heard about it before so I went to the page and discovered someone going old school. What do I mean by that?
Many of us have assimilated all kinds of goodies from the technological era. From cell phones to I-pods to the Kindle, tablets and other technology, we think that if we have all these gadgets, life becomes easier. I for one, like to read my books in the original format. I can make all kinds of notes, underline what I want and review it at will. I understand that some e-readers and tablets allow you to make notes and have some amazing features. The thing is, I like the simplicity and the smell of a book. That does not mean that I don’t read anything on my tablet. It means that if I find a book I want to keep, chances are, I am going to get the book also.
I love journaling. That is something I cannot do online. Even keeping my agenda on my computer never worked for me. I always have a couple of agendas, and now, more and more, I used them for several purposes. I also like a place where I can grab my pen and just write what I need. More importantly, depending on where you work, you might not be allowed to pull out your electronic device while working. Rarely, do you have a restriction on pulling out your agenda to write out your appointments or important tidbits.
This is why I found this concept of bullet journaling so interesting. I don’t know if I will use it or not. Right now, I am discovering the page and letting you know what is out there so that you can make your own decision. For what I can understand, you make your own calendar, bullet points for the things that you need and then have different symbols for the kinds of things they are, like events, notes, and to do’s. The page includes a video that explains how it works and all kinds of information for you to create your own.
So, if there is any tool you use to organize your thoughts, share it with us on the comments section below. If you like this message, share it with your friends. Thank you.
