Bullet Journal Ideas

Like many people, I adopted bullet journaling into my routine. I started a few years ago, but I found that if I tried to schedule myself to write in it and track daily I was unable to do it. Perhaps it’s a character flaw, but I don’t do well with self-imposed deadlines, so I started journaling when I wanted to, and I have found that to be a very efficient system for myself.

My Journals

I have two books I run, one is my personal journal, where things aren’t so organized, the other is my work and budgeting book, where I log hours worked on different agreements, notable work events and sites (I work construction, so I jump around a lot on different contracts, so it’s important to keep track of each one come tax time.)

For obvious reasons I am not going to share pages from my work section of my book, but I will share the budgeting side. I started with a very simple way of writing out my budget, and I’ll be honest, it wasn’t great. I didn’t give myself enough information or context to be able to easily go back through later and understand why amounts were what they were. I realize the amounts seem a little strange ( one day I’ll write down how I have managed to budget months out of a couple weeks work ).

Here ( above ) is the set up of how I am writing my budget these days. Yes it is a calendar, a simple structure that is easily filled in with amounts due and payable. At the end of every month I fill in the credit card debt, loan amounts, chequing, savings and RRSP as of the final day of the month for personal tracking.

Let’s move forward to the big lists of ideas!

It may seem like a little thing to write a little note in your journal, but it has far reaching effects in your life.
