Ryder Carroll’s first book on the Bullet Journal technique was released today and my copy arrived along with the Stealth Bullet Journal as part of a box set.
I’m already enjoying the perspective provided within its pages. There’s a lot of value in having a curated publication straight from the system’s creator.
A quick rundown of how I’m currently using Bullet Journal to manage my projects.
Pocket Notebook One
- Monthly Log
- Future Log
Pocket Notebook Two
- Rapid Log intermixed with the Daily Log
The First notebook with my Collections and Monthly Log, Future Log has lasted over a year and I’m only 1/2 way through it. The second notebook for my Daily Log and Rapid Logging usually takes 8-12 weeks to fill up. Once done I swap it for a new one.
The pitfall of using pocket notebooks is that it requires me to be very concise. At some point I may need to create a Index notebook just to remind myself what’s inside which one as they get used up pretty quickly.
Admittedly, it can be counter productive to have a dozen of these floating around instead of a single larger notebook.
