When I first started bullet journaling, I was pretty content with sticking to Ryder Carroll’s rapid logging system. I experimented a few times with weekly spreads over the years, but always found myself always coming back to rapid logging as it was the most efficient method for me, both in regards to space and time in an A5 or smaller journal.
In my current journal, I have used rapid logging on occasion, but I have found myself much more drawn to utilizing weekly spreads, perhaps due to having more space on the page in this journal than I have in the past.
After many experiments, I’m excited to share with you 6 different weekly spread designs. Keep reading to find some ideas for your next weekly spread!
Today we’re going to take a look at my bullet journal setup for May! I know I’m a bit late, but as they say, it’s better late than never! Read on for details, photos and video of this simple yet highly functional layout.
I had originally planned on sharing a blog post at the start of the year detailing all of my goals for 2020 and my perfect plan to execute them throughout the year. I had gone through a really intensive process to outline each goal and the steps needed to complete them during December of last year in preparation for January 1st. My goals were lofty, my timeline was strict, and I thought I was ready to tackle anything. But if you read my previous blog post, you know that things haven’t been working out according to plan. If the corona virus has taught me anything, it’s that life is truly unpredictable. So I have taken some time to reevaluate my goals and decide on what is really important to me. I have chosen to remove most of my deadlines, lighten up on some of the more difficult tasks, and I feel a lot better about my goals in general. Read on if you are interested in finding out what my goals for the rest of year are!
So we’re a good chunk of the way through January already, but I thought it would be a good idea to look back over my 2019 goals and see how far I got before moving on to my new goals for the new year.
Last year, I made two separate lists: one list of “intentions,” or goals that I felt couldn’t quite be quantified or measured, and one list of “goals,” which turned out to be a lot more like a bucket list. Since then I’ve learned a lot about how to properly design and plan goals, so while I wasn’t able to accomplish much last year, I am hoping for a lot more success in 2020.
Without further ado, let’s dive into the two lists and see how I did!
Today, I wanted to share my goals and intentions for 2019. It might seem like they’re the same thing, but there is a difference between the two! And while most people preach the importance of setting “SMART” goals, I think that also setting intentions, which are not as easily measured, can contribute to cultivating the mindset needed for achieving your goals. But I’m not a psychologist, so what do I know!
In this post, I’ll be going through some of my most important intentions for the year, as well as detailing each of my goals. If you’re looking for ideas or inspiration for your own 2019 goals, read on!
So I read somewhere that it’s actually bad to share your goals. Saying them out loud causes you to believe that you’ve accomplished something and that you are closer to your goals than you actually are. You end up taking it easy and you may not work as hard to achieve your goals. You may not even achieve them at all! So I won’t be sharing my detailed list of goals for 2016 for this reason. But I will share a list of areas in my life that I will be focusing on this year.
