“Always be a first rate version of yourself instead of a second rate version of somebody else”. – Judy Garland
For the longest time, I could never successfully keep my planner and note takings organized. I would always have a planner, and a small notebook. I would write some notes in the planner, some in the notebook. It became very confusing and disorganized.
Recently, I came across this article
on Bullet Journaling by Tomasz Tunguz. Bullet Journal
was developed by Ryder Carroll
, an Art Director from Brooklyn. As Carroll explains, Bullet Journal is for those list-makers, note-takers, track-keepers, and doodlers. It will “help you organize the present, record the past, and plan for the future”.
The idea is simple. You use various bullets to keep track of things. You create an index at the beginning of every journal, so you know where to look for a particular date or note. You have a calendar, and tasks for daily/monthly accomplishments. My favorite part about it, is that it forces you to think in the present, and not fast forward to months in advance, freaking yourself out that you’ll forget to do something. I always had a bad habit of thinking too far ahead, and everything current I was working on, got pushed to the side.
Bullet Journaling allows you to capture all types of data in your everyday life, whether that be a daily plan, budget log, or a random drawing. You have one notebook, rather than several. You can identify what’s working for you and what isn’t. It will help you focus on your tasks, and keep you productive.
What items/accessories do you crave the most during the fall season? My top picks would be my favorite pair of Oxfords
, an old man sweater (complete with elbow patches), and my trusty Moleskine
notebook. I also love my Madewell satchel
(that transitions from season to season very easily).
Items: Satchel, Madewell (Spring 2013) | Oxfords, Ruche (Spring 2011)
Notebook, Moleskine | Sweater, Zara (Fall 2010)
Misc. Items: Delfonics Mechanical Pencil, Le Pen Felt Pen
Peony Lipstick (Anthropologie), Dachshund Notes (Anthroplogie)
Sometimes, my favorite thing to do on the weekend is just relax. Not have any huge plans, but just hang out, have a Star Trek marathon day, and drink mimosas. That’s just what we did this past weekend. Our venturing outside consisted of having a nice family brunch with the pups, just to go back home and drink mimosas/beer on the couch with our favorite shows. It was perfection!
