Bullet Journal Method Book + Leuchtturm Giveaway

I first discovered the bullet journal system in 2013 when Ryder Carroll first shared it. I stuck to it pretty rigidly and actually stopped using it until I rediscovered it in 2015. This time, the community had been established and people were making the system their own. With the freedom and being in a different time in my life, I dove in and began my own bullet journal experiment. And it was awesome.

I went from using planning systems for 4 months at a time to using this system for almost 4 years.

This system has been such a gift to me and countless others. As a leadership educator, I believe a system and process like this empowers people to see their way of organizing the world and their life as valid. That not everything has to be a color coded, minimalist, sparse aesthetic – that meaningfully organized could be colorful, spatial, spilling over, and so much more. That people could design the structure, rather than forcing themselves to fit into a given one.

And now, Ryder has published a book about the system, The Bullet Journal Method, to share more of the story. To be honest, I was surprised too see how thick this book was! When I dove into it, I realized it’s because Ryder went all out in the stories AND research about why this system can be beneficial and why it resonates with so many people.

As a reflective person myself, I found myself re-energized to do more goal setting and journaling… which does NOT happen often, I can tell you that!

Win your own copy of the Bullet Journal Method and an official bullet journal Leuchtturm notebook!

So anyway, it is about damn time I got this post up so I can GIVE AWAY a copy of the Bullet Journal Method AND an Official Bullet Journal Leuchtturm notebook.

    I include a tracker for the items I crochet each year in my bullet journal.
    I color a 2×2 square with the colors from each hat I create then write the number of the hat over the colors. It makes a page that resembles a colorful patchwork quilt and that makes me smile when I see how much I have accomplished toward that goal.

    I am one of several parents who volunteers to feed our HS thespians as they TECH, the *serious* preparations the week before a theater performance. We cooks have been tweaking and expanding our menu, to make it more fun for the performers without killing ourselves. 😊
    I keep a running menu in my journal.

    I have a step tracker based on those popular, colorful mood trackers. My goal is to walk at least 3000 steps each day. Each month is represented by a turtle with different parts marked off as days. I’ve assigned colors to ranges of steps: anything below 3000 is gray, 3000-4000 is a Kelly green, 4000-5000 is an olive green, etc. Nowadays, it’s rare that I color in a part of the turtle gray.

    Definitely got be the brain dump called the to do list so that I can check things off as I go so I can see what I have accomplished but also to be conducive to a good night’s sleep since I wouldn’t have those items still stuck in my head on a mental to do list. That maybe and/or a gratitude list.

    2. My favorite collections are my (a.)TBR! I get so excited about books and the different stories. (b.) Goals! I have major depression and other mental health problems. Having a goals list keeps me going at some level when things get tough. It gives me hope for my future.

    I can only hope to grow and get better by using my bullet journal.

    My most useful collections are the ones I use for planning conferences! I’ve tweeked the setup a bit and found it’s incredibly helpful in the months/weeks leading up to con season since I tend to be at 3-5 multiday cons in a 3.5m period. All my travel/accommodation information, classes/panels I’m teaching, performances I’m doing, and random details that I need to know quickly and easily.

    Usually my ongoing home improvement projects spread is most useful, since it is where I go to find things to do when I have a chunk of time.
    My daily+ (weekly/monthly) pages are most used. And I’m pretty excited for my travel planning pages! In a couple weeks, that will be most useful!

    I love that the system isn’t rigid and you can think about and answer these questions differently even weeks apart!

    I’ve been surprised that the layout I enjoy looking back on the most is my monthly gratitude log. I struggle with anxiety and depression, so finding something to be happy about every day can be a challenge – but looking back on happy memories, one month at a time, reminds me how full my life is.

  29. It is really hard to decide which list/collection is the most helpful as the Bullet Journal method is amazing! I speak about it every chance I get. If I had to choose though, it would probably be the Habit Trackers that have been most helpful to me. The Habit Trackers have helped to keep me accountable and this had definitely made a big difference in my life. @qtrini26

    Most useful would be my running “when you have time” to-do list. I struggle to commit to tasks that aren’t time-related/sensitive, so having a running list of things to do when I have downtime, with tasks ranging from “sort through and reorganize closet” to “research x” to “read for fun” is a really helpful resource
