Bullet journaling: where creativity meets efficiency
Many of us strive to be more productive yet we rely on numerous calendars and notes to manage our busyness which, in itself, seems ineffective. Enter bullet journaling. “Creativity” and “efficiency” are said to be interconnected, so why not try an organization system that is creative and highly efficient?
The art of bullet journaling
A bullet journal, or bujo for short, is an all-in-one customizable planner, to-do list and diary. Requiring only a notebook and a pen—and maybe a few markers for good measure—a bullet journal can be used to list tasks, schedule events, track goals and log brainstorming ideas. The result is a simple, inexpensive, personalized and highly creative organization system that can be as colourful as your moods.
