Video Pick: The Easiest Way to Keep Track of Your Life
I'm always looking for ways to keep track of all the moving parts of my life. I've tried all the apps and pre-printed planners. I've tried every variation of the to-do list you can imagine . I've tried separate systems for personal and work, and I've tried combining them.
In the end, I've spent a lot of money and time trying to manage my tasks—and I still haven't found anything I'm satisfied with.
That's why I was intrigued when I first heard about the Bullet Journal . Explained in the video below, this system doesn't require you to buy any special equipment or spend hours and hours dealing with a convoluted system. All you need is any old journal, a pen, and a few minutes to get started. Then, thanks to the simple use of different shaped bullets, you'll be on your way to tracking tasks, notes, and events all in one place.
It just might be the easiest productivity management system on the planet—a to-do list that would even work for me.
