I decided to start bullet journaling! I have to admit that I am not one to constantly use planners, but I am trying because I am not an organized person. Not having an organized personality can sometimes bring you problems. After compulsively pinning cute pictures of creative layouts of bullet journals, I decided to give journaling a try. Today I wanted to share five reasons why I decided to start a bullet journal and share my May layout.
5 Reasons I started Bullet Journaling
1. TO CREATE A HABIT
One of the main reasons why I started bullet journaling is because I wanted to start the habit of sitting down and reflecting on the tasks and accomplishments of the day. Every morning I dedicate 10 to 15 minutes to write down on my bullet journal the tasks for the day. Before going to bed I also like to dedicate 10 to 15 minutes to reflect on the day.
2. TO KEEP TRACK OF MY ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Every now and then I like to look back at my accomplishments. Doing this keeps me motivated to create and keep on working. At the end of the month I have a page where I write all the things that I have achieve each month.
3. TO KEEP MY IDEAS ORGANIZED
As a blogger and creator I constantly get ideas of new content to write. 80% of these ideas are never developed because I usually write them down on any piece of paper that I find and that paper ends up lost. On my bullet journal I added a space for me to write down any ideas that I have. Hopefully this will help getting my ideas organized.
4. TO BE MORE PRODUCTIVE
I have found that every time I write down my tasks I am more productive. Writing down all the things that I want to do and knowing the purpose of it motivates me to get out of my bed and work.
5. SO I DON’T FORGET
I hate to admit this, but I am very forgetful. I forget birthdays, holidays and even test dates. If I don’t write it down there is an 90% probability that I will forget it; with the bullet journal I have improved this.
