Starting a Bullet Journal | A Step By Step Guide For Beginners
You’ve gathered all of your bullet journal essentials, and now you’re ready to transform your life. You are finally starting a bullet journal. Goodbye disorganization and hello to the new and improved productive you! But wait, how do you even begin?
1. Start With the Index
Creating the index can be as simple as writing “index” on the first two pages of your journal. This section will be your table of contents. It will make finding lists and collections quick and easy.
Tip: Be specific when labeling pages in your index.. Try color-coding or using stickers to categorize the index pages.
2. Make a Key
How will you organize your entries? Use bullets to differentiate between events, tasks, and completed tasks. You can get creative and use your own symbols like hearts, stars, and more!
3. Create a Future Log
This section is an overview of tasks, important dates, and events that are scheduled months in advance. Start with next month, and then outline next 3-6 months.
Tip: Use the future log to keep track of your birthdays, holidays, and upcoming bills!
4. Make Lists and COllections
You’re starting this journal because you want to improve your time-management, relieve some stress, express some creativity, or just remember to do your laundry! Use the next few pages to create lists and collections of your goals, tasks, or shopping lists.
