It’s that time of year! Most people are excited about fall for the festive decor, pumpkin everything, and cooler weather. I’m excited for “planner season”. We’ve passed the school supply rush that happens at the end of the summer. We are now entering the time of new yearly planners. While I personally have found an organization system that does not rely on a planner, I figured I would begin to share my knowledge of planners to help those of you still deciding what tool to use. I’ll start with the Moleskine planner. I have used two different planners by this brand, the Moleskine weekly planner and the Moleskine daily planner, over the years. Many people are familiar with Moleskine and these are widely available.
I recently received a comment from a user who asked how to overcome the anxiety of getting started. This is a great question! This kind of anxiety is common within the Bullet Journal community. There is no right way to get started, you just have to try some different things and see what works for you.
I started a notebook or Bullet Journal as a way to keep track of my personal to-do’s. I had struggled with finding a planner that worked for me and stumbled upon Ryder Carroll’s Bullet Journal® website and intro video. If you are thinking about your work/personal organizational system and just want some ideas, head over to The Bullet Journal Website and watch the video. Once you are ready to give it a try, remember that it is completely okay to try things and have them not work.
