The Bullet Journal Method
How to be more focused on your goals
Time management, efficiency, and productivity: these topics are increasingly important in our busy lives. Ryder Carroll explains the method that has spread worldwide and helps people achieve their goals every day through the mindful and creative management of daily tasks. The Bullet Journal method is a flexible system that can be easily tailored to our needs, that helps us to firstly become aware of our priorities and then go on to achieve them, bringing more meaning to our lives. Writing down the things most important to us in an offline space allows for a daily evaluation of our existence.
Many useful tips to:
- Be more organised, productive, and increase concentration levels.
- Organise daily life and long-term goals simultaneously.
- Create a space offline so you can concentrate on the things that matter.
- Get more results by working on less.
The Bullet Journal Method is your ongoing autobiography: it helps you to remain in the now, treasure your past, and plan your goals for the future
The Bullet Journal is a tool that helps us better organise our days and objectives, with the added bonus of making the people that use it feel more balanced, secure, and motivated.
It can be thought of as an autobiography in progress – a way to keep track of things which, thanks to our frenetic lifestyle, can be easily missed, as well a way to revisit the past that has led up to this point in time, and plan our future with intention.
The Bullet Journal encourages you to learn from the past, reflect on the mistakes made, acknowledge what worked, and gradually learn to distinguish the more meaningful elements from those that are irrelevant. It allows us to increase our awareness, which is essential when it comes to making decisions that align with our principles, and to change our life’s course, if we find it heading in an undesirable direction.
The Bullet Journal helps us to lead a life of intention, starting from an awareness of our mind and how it works. Everyday, we all have so many thoughts that if each of them was a word, we would have enough material to be able to fill a book a day!
The problem is that these thoughts never leave our minds in an ordered and consistent way, as they would, were they a book, but rather in a disorderly and random fashion. Our minds subsequently find themselves forced to fight an overload of thoughts that are clogging it up – all of this at the expense of our ability to concentrate and prioritise in an attempt to lead a completely satisfying existence. We find ourselves totally “run off our feet”, unhappy and lacking time, because instead of focusing on the things that count, we find ourselves getting lost, scrambling to keep up with thousands of commitments.
The Bullet Journal method helps us to focus on a few relevant objectives, reducing the number of decisions that we have to make each day, inadvertently reducing our stress levels and the associated drain on our energy. Just think of Steve Jobs, who always wore jeans and a black turtleneck because he did not have time to decide what to wear, as he was too busy concentrating all of his decision-making energy on his business ventures!
