Start A Bullet Journal Today

Hi there! Welcome to the space where we talk and share everything about Bullet Journal!

You may have already heard about Bullet Journal before or at least you were Googling up about it, hence why you are here now.



Allow me to briefly share with you what is a Bullet Journal according to the creator of the system itself, Ryder Carroll;


The Bullet Journal Method is a system that helps you

track your past, order the present and design the future.

Ryder, who is a digital product designer, came up with this method as a way to cope with his "attention deficit disorder (ADD). Now, although most of us do not have this disorder specifically, but what we have is an enormous amount of distractions in our day-to-day lifestyle. By Bullet Journaling, you'll be able to set aside all of that distractions and focus on what that matters, which is YOU!

In a way or another, we all have been "bullet journaling", is just that we don't realize it because we weren't being intentional enough with it. Remember the one time, you took out your notepad and started writing down all your to-do list for the day and tried your best to ticked them off as the day went by? Or the time that you wrote small notes on sticky pads that went missing somewhere in the pile of your work space only to find it a year down the line? Or the time when you kept an "album" book to store all your memories?

If you said yes to any of the above, then yes! You have been "pre-bullet journaling" (in a way...).

So, if you realized, before I started throwing out all those scenarios, I did mention the word "intentional" and that's basically the key of Bullet Journaling ( as how I see it). After reading through the whole "The Bullet Journal Method" book that was published by Ryder Carroll, I can safely say that to start a Bullet Journal you NEED (and I emphasize this a lot) to understand WHY you want to Bullet Journal in the first place.

Starting something new can be very exciting at first but if you lack in the "intentions", you will quickly find yourself being bored of having to do it, after awhile. For some, they started Bullet Journaling because it piqued their interest and at that moment they thought it will be fun (although, I highly agree that, Bullet Journaling is a whole lot of fun, if you want it to be!) but soon they run out of ideas and motivation to keep going at it.

That's a sad case scenario, but it happens! So, get to know and understand your "WHY" before starting a Bullet Journal.

For me, I started Bullet Journaling because I really liked seeing how the tasks of the day was getting ticked off and the excitement of having to illustrate/draw/doodle/scribble in my Bullet Journal. But just like some of you, after 5-6 months, I just wasn't feeling it anymore. I felt like it became a chore and I just wasn't doing any justice to it.

I left Bullet Journaling for a month or so, and that right after that something sparked in me, and I decided to give it another go, but this time with proper guidance, foundation and intentions!

The thing that sparked in me, was the fact that I felt I was going nowhere in life but then I knew at the back of my mind and in my heart that I really wanted to progress, move forward in life so that I can live the life that I want.

And that's the reason why I started Bullet Journaling from the very start. Of course, to start something you need to know where to start and that's when I took a whole month, dedicated an hour of my day, to read and truly understand "The Bullet Journal Method" book. That was the step I took to get my guidance and foundation in check!

As for my intentions, this time, I not only wanted to tick tasks off my list, create beautiful spreads that will inspire and be admired by others but also to grow myself as a human being. I wanted to be more intentional with everything that I wanted to do and needed to be done, in order to be in control with my life.

After all, all you need is a pen and a notebook to start steering your life into the direction that you want it to be.

So, first things first, ask yourself these question:

Why you'd want to Bullet Journal?
What is that you'd like to achieve through Bullet Journaling?
Would you be willing to spend 5-10 minutes a day to give yourself a time to re-focus on your wants, your needs, your goals?

- All of these just sounds like a whole bunch of "Me-Time" logged into a book, doesn't it? Well it is just that! You are important, you are essential and you are here on earth for a reason.


If you've found your answer that is taking to the path of Bullet Journaling, then you are all ready to start! Just need to get yourself a pen and a notebook!


Oh! May I remind you that it is absolutely okay, perfectly fine and totally acceptable, to start Bullet Journaling no matter whether it is in the end of the year, the beginning of the year, in the middle of the month...just get to it! Your life starts now!
