Bullet Journal

Fumbling with to-do lists, a Kanban board in the kitchen, a google doc spreadsheet, a mood journal since forever, this year I’m going to centralize my life planning. As we know from Celebration Grid running experiments is vital for personal development I am going to try the bullet journal method

My Bullet Journal

I chose the Leuchtturm1917 BuJo.

It already has an index page, page numbers and three tail bands

My personal lists

Habit Tracker

As a replacement for my coach.me app I’ve created a monthly view in landscape orientation. I helps me tracking my habits like

  • Drink more water
  • Talk a walk
  • Use dental floss
  • Reading
  • Yoga
  • Exercise
  • Money

I also put in the songs I’m currently practicing but in the next month I’d like to dedicate a separate page because it gets messy mixed up with general habits

Books to read

I’ve put all unread books on a separate list to keep track of my reading habit as well

Movies to watch

Do you have those “What shall I watch now?” moments?

I have and now every time a friend or colleague mentions a movie I haven’t watched yet I put it on the list. When I have the aforementioned situation I consult this list.

Songs to learn

The same goes for learning songs. Sometimes I hear a nice piece of music on the radio and think to myself: “I’d like to learn that so bad”. So I put it on list.


Stuff breaks. Or kids break stuff 🙂 So I collect items I want to repair on a list.
