Bullet Journaling

Introduction

I've always been a planner person - and have tried them ALL.  I just never stuck with them for very long; a few months into the system and I would inevitably discover that it didn't suit my ever-changing needs. In a mode of experimentation, I had tried the bullet journal before, but it wasn't until last year where I really took the liberty of making my own, and it was at that point that it stuck.  I've been using the system ever since, tinkering with it as I go.  Hopefully, this will inspire you to find a system that works for you and helps you cultivate an intentional life!

    Bullet Journal for a Clutter-Free Mind with @CindyWildflowers
    Clutter is the bane of creativity and expression. I am talking about that intangible mess of to-do’s, checklists, notes and reminders that you keep in your head. For more than two years now, I have been free of that chaos and it is, oh, so liberating! They now live between the pages of my bullet journal and my book of collections in an orderly manner. I've gained so much useful capacity just by decluttering my mind. Learn more about Cindy's bullet journaling philosophy today!
