  • I'm Lucie Fink and this week is

  • 5 Days of bullet journaling.

  • Hey guys!

  • It's Lucie.

  • What's up?

  • Time to talk about bullet journaling.

  • Pew!

  • Not those kinds of bullets.

  • I got so many YouTube comments asking me to

  • do 5 days of bullet journalling.

  • Honestly, I think this might have been

  • the most requested video, to date

  • in the series.

  • I already did 5 days of journaling and

  • I figured bullet journaling was the same thing.

  • But...It's not.

  • After watching a few videos on YouTube

  • about bullet journaling,

  • I totally, totally get it.

  • No need to push any further,

  • the video has arrived.

  • Ryder Carroll, the creator of the Bullet Journal,

  • describes it as,

  • an analog system for the digital age.”

  • It helps you record the past,

  • organize the present,

  • and plan for the future.

  • So, today I'm just going to dive

  • right into it and every day this week

  • is going to be another step to helping

  • you build your very own bullet journal.

  • First, the things you'll need:

  • A journal of your choice,

  • a ruler,

  • and a pen.

  • Or if you're like me and that's a little too

  • simple for you, you might want to invest

  • in a hundred rainbow colored markers,

  • some nice fine point black pens,

  • a very pretty journal,

  • and any fun stickers or stencils

  • to make it a little bit brighter.

  • When you open up your journal the first thing

  • you want to do is create your index.

  • Since my journal is a little bit larger than normal,

  • I'm gonna leave just one page for the index

  • but you can leave two for it if your

  • journal is a bit smaller.

  • The index will let you know what page

  • everything's on so that it's always easy

  • to find things.

  • The next couple of pages will be our future log

  • or the upcoming year at a glance.

  • You can make this page as complex

  • or as simple as you want.

  • I'm using a straightedge to make little

  • calendars for the next six months with lines

  • next to them so I can fill in upcoming events

  • or goals or intentions for the month.

  • I'm working with a pen which is not a great

  • idea if you're prone to making mistakes.

  • So if you do make a mistake like I did,

  • just feel free to cover up with with a sticker.

  • And when you're done filling in some

  • upcoming items, don't forget to number

  • the pages

  • and add them to your index up front.

  • I have about six notebooks floating

  • around my desk.

  • I'm constantly jotting notes down everywhere,

  • in my phone, I'm sending myself emails

  • as reminders.

  • It's a total mess and it's getting a little bit

  • hard to keep up with.

  • And from what I've been told,

  • a bullet journal is a way to consolidate

  • all of those random things into one

  • very organized space.

  • So, let's get organized.

  • Now that we have our index and our future log,

  • we're gonna start breaking down this

  • month further with our monthly log.

  • You can do this in a number of ways.

  • Most people start by writing the month

  • on the top of both pages.

  • The left the page is going to be your calendar

  • and the right page is going to be your task

  • list.

  • A classic bullet journal in the simplest sense

  • of the word,

  • just list the numbers of the month

  • along the left column and then puts the

  • letters of the day right next to those.

  • But I wanted to make this a little bit more

  • exciting so I used a ruler and I just built

  • out an entire April monthly calendar.

  • This calendar gives you a bird's eye view

  • of the entire month and then you can go in

  • and add any important dates.

  • And on our task page,

  • you'll start writing down things

  • you need to accomplish in the

  • month ahead.

  • To break down the month one step further,

  • we're gonna make a daily log.

  • You'll need to make a new one of these

  • once a week and basically this page, to me,

  • seems sort of like an agenda or a planner.

  • It's all about rapid logging your tasks,

  • events, and notes for the day.

  • So now that we've started putting items

  • into our bullet journal, it's a good time

  • to make a key.

  • This is optional but I think it's really

  • helpful to remind you what everything means,

  • especially if you're using different symbols.

  • Bullets are for tasks you need to accomplish.

  • Open circles are events or date related entries.

  • A dash is for notes or thoughts that you want

  • to jot down.

  • Once you've complete a task,

  • you strike it with an x.

  • If you migrate a task to another day or

  • another month, you use the right arrow.

  • If an event or a task gets cancelled,

  • just strike it out.

  • And if a task has been scheduled,

  • use the left arrow.

  • And now that we have our monthly log

  • and our daily log and our key,

  • add any finishing touches

  • and don't forget to number the pages and

  • put these in your index up front.

  • Stay organized!

  • Many people just want a bullet journal to

  • use it as a planner, to keep their events

  • and their tasks in order.

  • And that's fine but if you're anything

  • like me and you have random lists floating

  • all around that you want to keep track of

  • separately and individually, you should start

  • something called collections.

  • A collection is a list of notes or thoughts

  • that are related to a common theme.

  • So today I'm starting a few different collections.

  • Books I've read.

  • Since my boyfriend can't eat gluten,

  • I'm making a collection that's all about

  • gluten-free dishes to try with him.

  • And restaurants that I want to try

  • in New York City.

  • And of course, I'm planning on adding

  • new collections as new interests pop up

  • and as I get new ideas.

  • Other ideas for collections are a bucket list,

  • a gratitude list, my friends' birthdays,

  • things my parents say,

  • animals I want to own in the future.

  • You get the drift.

  • And the best thing about a bullet journal

  • is you can keep on customizing it to fit your

  • changing interests and personal needs.

  • I started my daily log for the week and then

  • I added collections after that.

  • That might stress people out but

  • don't let it.

  • The bullet journal should unfold as your life

  • happens so just let it happen.

  • Let it unfold.

  • If you're the type of person who likes having

  • collections, you will likely love trackers.

  • This is a way to track your habits and to

  • make sure you're doing the things that you

  • wanna do and it can also be a way to track

  • negative habits to make sure that you're

  • stopping.

  • I wanted to simplify it but I also wanted

  • to make it a little more visual so I got a

  • compass and I drew circles.

  • I broke it out into the days of the month

  • and then I wrote in the three habits that

  • I want to track this month:

  • drinking eight glasses of water a day,

  • going to the gym,

  • and reading my book before bed.

  • One more thing about pages and the order of

  • the bullet journal, I put my habit tracker

  • just on the next available page but a lot

  • of people like to put the habit tracker right

  • next to their monthly log so that they can

  • look at the whole month and see the days,

  • their events, and habits.

  • So if you want to do it that way,

  • just make sure you leave a blank space

  • after your monthly log

  • before you dive into the daily log.

  • Another fun thing you can do here is make

  • a goal page for a specific goal that you want

  • to achieve.

  • One of my 2017 resolutions was to drink more

  • green smoothies so I'm making a

  • 50 by summer green smoothie tracker.

  • To make this template, I used stickers and now

  • every time I have a green smoothie, I'll

  • just check off the box.

  • I think this is a really fun and visual way

  • to see how close you are to achieving a goal.

  • And of course, at the end,

  • you know what I'm going to say...

  • Don't forget to number the pages

  • and add them to your index.

  • Your bullet journal is really coming along now.

  • Great job, I'm so proud of you.

  • Stay tuned.

  • Yay!

  • Something that's becoming abundantly clear

  • to me is that there are a million and one

  • ways to organize almost every page

  • of your bullet journal.

  • To give you some examples and inspiration,

  • here are some of my favorites that

  • I found on YouTube.

  • Your bullet journal can be out of control

  • with writing everywhere.

  • You can keep it very minimalistic and simple.

  • Also, not everyone is crafty

  • and that's okay.

  • There are tons of companies that sell journals

  • that are basically like bullet journals.

  • For example, this 2017 planner from XO Planners

  • is not marketed as a bullet journal but

  • when you open it up,

  • it has some of the same elements.

  • Firstly, here's your future log.

  • There are pages for goal setting,

  • things you want to learn and explore,

  • a bucket list.

  • Then at the start of each month,

  • there's a monthly log with a section to write down

  • notes and tasks

  • and each daily log gets its own page

  • and it has so many different elements

  • to it.

  • There's a schedule,

  • to dos,

  • what you're grateful for,

  • your inspiration,

  • brilliant ideas, and more.

  • I'm hoping this video inspires you to start

  • your very own bullet journal with some

  • beautiful templates.

  • But don't be discouraged if you need to

  • simplify things from week to week.

  • I think that's the point of a bullet journal.

  • It's supposed to help you out,

  • not stress you out.

  • So if you're finding that you're really stressed

  • but you wanna keep the bullet journal,

  • pare it down.

  • Even if it's the most simple and minimalistic

  • bullet journal in the world, if it works,

  • it works.
