The Bullet Journal Workshop is located at Ganara Art Space, Jalan Kemang Raya 8B. The home-artsy place and welcoming environment is very comfortable and allows participant to concentrate more.
Without further due, let’s get on to create the first section of the bullet journal, which is : Cover, Key and Index! So tips and trick for you not to get lost inside your thick journal is to label each page and section with page number and you list them all down in front of the journal in form of page number and its description. One more thing, it is very beneficial to place your ” things to do today” checklist that is written on sticky notes, on the cover of the journal as daily reminder. Additionally, they also gives us input to create your own distinctive symbol in each checklist. For instance, heart shape for homework, square for events to attend and red circle for deadlines, then cross it once it has been completed.
Flipping to the next page : Future Log and Collection
Future Log is one of the section in your journal to organize the future. So mind-blowing facts, we actually can take control of our future if we can committed to them, and writing it down to give you constant reminder helps a lot! The Future Log is in form of Calendar where you draw each month and mark the important dates, events and other necessary personal things you wish to accomplish! Following the future log, it is essential to ensure that we actually keep track of our plan or if there is any sudden impromptu and improvement needed in the middle of your life journey.
Sherly from Planner & Coffe, and Sylvia from Boxypen are two lovely ladies who lead the workshop last weekend. We must say, they are super patience and smart to reach the idea of creating these tips and trick. They inform how salient it is to create the collection session and review it once a week how your life, work is balanced and showing positive progress.
Inside the collection pages, you can fill whatever you wish and decorate it with your own preference and style. So let’s say, for the first page of your collection, is the list of goals this month that haven’t been achieved last month and remind yourself why this particular goal is delayed. Another suggestion from Sherly, are habbit tracker, mood swings and movies! sounds very fun and exciting to write down. Should you wish to have personal self improvement, and often people got lost in the jungle of where to begin. Apparently, writing them down is helpful! just make sure you keep record of the progress or delay in a timeline.
Moreover, there are also the term of Monthly Spread and Weekly/Daily Spread : These are the overview of your activities for the past one month and each week. Again, you can be as creative and wild as you like in your journal, some people love to go into details of what they do from morning to bed and sometimes, full one month recap also works for other people. So it’s really up to you.
