Hello friends,

today I'm stoked to share my love for a beautiful productivity system - the Bullet Journal Method. You may know it as "BuJo", a cult favourite among note-takers and planners. What's it all about? Let's just say it's an analog solution to a digital problem, the brainchild of Ryder Carroll, and an absolute game-changer in my life.

BuJo - A Canvas for Your Life

The Bullet Journal Method is a wonderfully flexible system that adapts to your needs. It's not merely a way to note down tasks or events - it's a mindfulness practice disguised as a productivity system. But what makes it truly special is how it can be personalised to your unique lifestyle and needs.

Ryder Carroll's book, aptly named "The Bullet Journal Method", is a fantastic guide to the method's potential. The book walks you through the method's principles and even delves into the philosophy behind it. It's a compelling read that elevates note-taking from a mundane chore to a holistic practice in mindful living.

In my own journey, I've found the Bullet Journal to be more than just a productivity tool. It’s a place to declutter my mind, map my ideas, track my progress, and reflect on my life. It's my go-to companion for navigating the chaos of everyday life.

Stories from My BuJo Journey

BuJo isn't just another fad - it's a lifestyle. When I first started using the Bullet Journal, I was skeptical. Could a new way to take notes really help manage my chaotic digital life? Within weeks, I was hooked.

For over a decade, I have been using the GTD method to write down tasks and create different lists in my notebooks. However, adding the new way of migrating tasks and the entire ‘Bujo’ methodology has taken my note-taking to the next level.

Since I started using my BuJo for personal reflection, I noticed patterns in my mental well-being that I was previously unaware of. This helped me make meaningful changes to my daily routine and improved my overall mental health and productivity.

The Power of the Bullet Journal

The Bullet Journal's power lies in its simplicity and adaptability. At its core, it’s a system for task management, but with a bit of creativity, it can be so much more. It can be a habit tracker, a gratitude journal, a project planner - you name it. It's a versatile tool that can be tailored to fit your needs, making it a powerful asset in any productivity toolkit.

From my experience, the Bullet Journal has proven to be an effective tool for managing tasks, tracking habits, and encouraging mindfulness. The act of writing things down has helped me remain focused on my goals and be more intentional with my time.

These days I have different journals, two of them ‘classic’ bullet journals. One is dedicated to work and one is dedicated to everything else.


In the realm of productivity, the Bullet Journal Method stands out for its simplicity, versatility, and impact. Ryder Carroll's book serves as an excellent guide, but the true magic lies in making the system your own.

To kickstart your own BuJo journey:

  1. Get yourself a notebook and pen that you love - it's important to enjoy the process.
  2. Read "The Bullet Journal Method" for a thorough understanding of the system.
  3. Start simple, and adapt the system to suit your needs over time.

Remember, the goal isn't to create a picture-perfect journal. It's about creating a system that helps you live a more organised and mindful life. Give it a try, and you might just find your life becoming a little less chaotic and a lot more meaningful.

Until next time,
