  • We keep track of things.

  • The things we've done, the things we need to do, the things we aspire to.

  • There's a lot to keep track of.

  • There are plenty of apps for that, but I needed a system flexible enough to handle whatever I threw at it, and fast enough that it wouldn't get in the way.

  • Hi, I'm Ryder, and this is a brief updated overview of the Bullet Journal.

  • It's an analog system that I designed to track the past, organize the present, and plan for the future.

  • Does this sound good?

  • Okay, let me show you how to set it up.

  • Though this overview features a custom notebook design for Bullet-journaling, the system works just as well in the notebook of your choice.

  • To get started, flip to your first blank spread.

  • This will be your index.

  • To set it up, simply title both pages as "Index."

  • Now, let's set up your Future Log.

  • To set it up, turn to the next blank spread.

  • Title both pages as "Future Log."

  • There are many ways to set this up.

  • Here's a simple six-month version.

  • Count the amount of lines on your page.

  • Now divide that number by three.

  • With a ruler, draw a line across the spread.

  • Add the months to each box.

  • When you're done, add your page numbers and add the Future Log back into your index.

  • Okay, turn to your next blank spread.

  • This will be your "Monthly Log."

  • Add the name of the month on both pages.

  • The left will be your "Monthly Calendar."

  • Write down all the dates of the month, then add the first letter of the days.

  • Okay, that's the calendar.

  • The right page is your monthly task list.

  • Write down all the things you need to get done this month.

  • Before each task, draw a task bullet, which is just a simple dot.

  • Add the page numbers, and then add this month back into your Index.

  • The Monthly Log provides you with a birds-eye view of everything you need to get done in a month and the time you have to do it in.

  • Okay, lets set up your "Daily Log."

  • Start by entering the days date.

  • Now you can start adding entries.

  • Entries are logged using short, bulleted sentences.

  • Each entry goes into one of three categories: tasks, indicated by a dot bullet; events, indicated by a circle bullet; and notes, indicated by the dash bullet.

  • If a task is really important, place a star to left of it.

  • This is known as a "Signifier."

  • Signifiers add extra meaning to bullets, in this case, priority.

  • This is known as "Rapid Logging."

  • It makes capturing and organizing information really fast.

  • Now, we've set up all the core modules for the Bullet Journal.

  • The Index.

  • The Future Log.

  • The Monthly Log and the Daily Log.

  • Now I'll show you how they all work together.

  • At the end of each month, set up your next Monthly Log.

  • Scan your Daily Logs for open tasks.

  • X out the ones you've completed.

  • Now, take a moment and assess the remaining open tasks.

  • Ask yourself, "Is this still worth my time?"

  • If it's not, strike it out.

  • If it is worth your time in the short term, turn that entry's task dot into a right arrow, and copy the entry into the new monthly log.

  • If a task is due months from now, turn the task dot into a left arrow, and copy that entry into the corresponding month in the Future Log.

  • This process in known as Migration.

  • Migration will help you weed out distractions.

  • It's designed to help you focus on things that are worth your time.

  • The difference between being busy and being productive.

  • Sometimes you'll have related tasks and notes.

  • To help organize related items, let's create a collection.

  • First, go to your next blank page, and give it a topic and number the pages.

  • Now migrate all the notes and/or tasks into that collection.

  • Now index that collection for reference later.

  • Collections are a great way to organize shopping lists, or ongoing projects, or classes.

  • Okay, that's it for the basic overview.
