  • Although this seems like a basic thing, my first tip is to really think of the size of

  • your future bullet jornal.

  • You need to chose a notebook that you will be able to carry all year round so this choice

  • can make or break your bullet journaling habit.

  • When I first started bullet journaling I used the medium sized molekine notebook, which

  • you can see on the right but I soon found out that I preferred larger pages so I could

  • have more room to draw calendars and timetables.

  • Besides the size, you should also think about if you prefer to write with dots, lines, a

  • grid or just plain paper.

  • I am currently using a dotted moleskine bullet journal and I think I will never go back.

  • Dotted paper gives you the perfect layout for customizable spreads but it isn’t as

  • harsh as lines or grid paper.

  • Before starting to work on your bullet journal I really recommend searching for other bullet

  • journals on the web and seeing what people are doing with their notebooks.

  • You can find tons of inspiration on tumblr and youtube and incorporate [a few of the

  • things you find in your own journal.

  • You have tons of layouts to chose from, including daily, weekly and monthly spreads, as well

  • as habit trackers, timetables, timelines, task lists, you name it.

  • If I could choose one person to recommend to you, I would definitely check out Boho

  • Berry because she has the most beautiful bullet journal I’ve ever seen.

  • Another thing I think is so important is just to start simple.

  • Most people I know that have quit bullet journaling are mostly perfectionist people, that ended

  • up not enjoying how their spreads were looking because they were trying to over-complicate

  • the task.

  • Remember that the thing that the bullet system was supposed to revolutionize the journaling

  • world is the fact that it is such a simple system in comparison to traditional journaling

  • methods.

  • Just because you find wonderful bullet journals on the internet, it doesn’t mean you have

  • to commit to that aesthetic.

  • Just face your journal as a tool for productivity and not merely as a creative outlet.

  • As such, I would recommend you to spend a week or so preparing your bullet journal,

  • drawing a few spreads or numbering a few pages, just to get the hang of it.

  • I especially like to do this the week before the new year.

  • However, as soon as you officially start bullet journaling, don’t worry if your handwriting

  • is messy or smudgedyour journal is yours and nobody needs to see it.

  • Just keep writing and try to see how the journal develops through the year.

  • Maybe you will be surprised to find out that your journaling skills improve as the months

  • go by.

  • Since we are on the topic of committing, I also recommend for you to schedule a certain

  • time each day to write in your bullet journal.

  • One of the things that makes people quit bullet journaling is just finding out a few weeks

  • after they started that they haven’t written almost anything down.

  • I like to spend 10 minutes each day just sitting in front of that empty page and just trying

  • to remember of things that I need to do, or I need to accomplish.

  • If all of those productive things are already written down, I end up writing about things

  • that I am grateful for, or books that I want to read, or countries where I want to travel.

  • There is always something to write about and the task of writing every day becomes addictive

  • and that is when you understand that you are committed to journaling.

  • For a final, very functional tip, and I think I’ve mentioned this in my last year’s

  • bullet journal setup video, I recommend you to draw and write your permanent spreads in

  • the back of your bullet journal so you can quickly access them without having to check

  • your table of contents.

  • [I normally use this method to access my timetable, a year calendar, youtube requests, the contacts

  • of companies I’m working with, general contacts, financial information and so on.

  • I also like to keep my bucket list in the back of my journal so it doesn’t get lost

  • between all the weekly spreads in between.

  • I hope youve enjoyed this video!

  • If you want more information about bullet journaling, check out my Bullet Journal 101

  • video, as well as my bullet journal setup for the last year.

  • I will be sure to upload a 2017 setup in January so keep an eye out for that.

  • Bye!
