In Bullet Journaling, there are FOUR MAIN THEMES:
Monthly Log, and
All used to organize information for easy access, review, and analysis.
Located at the front of the Journal, it's used to find content.
Here, you'll find all the topics contained in the journal, along with related page numbers (for easy access).
🔻 Future Log:
Stores Events/Tasks/Notes occurring outside of the dated month. This allows you to track the goals you're working towards.
Review this at the end of each month, to make certain nothing has moved over/migrated into your Monthly Log.
🔻 Monthly Log:
Use two facing pages - a Calendar Page and a Task Page.
Record your Scheduled Tasks/Events as well as those already done. These entries are short; as this page is only used as a reference.
🔻 Task Page:
Record your Priority Tasks for the month or any remaining from the month before.
The left margin remains empty, with signifiers ( * - priority; ! - inspiration), used to mark important entries.
🔻 Daily Log: Designed for daily use, at the top of the page you'll record the date (as your topic).
Throughout the day, add in your important Tasks/Events/Notes using rapid logging.
If space remains, it's kept for the following day.
Daily Logs are created as you go or the night before, as you can never know how much space you need on any given day.
