In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
So…last night before I went to bed, I decided to try out a little bit of Bullet Journalling. If you’re not sure what that is or BuJo for short, just YouTube it. You’ll find your answers there hehe. For those of you who are already aware of it, you would already know that there are so many creative people out there with fantastic designs for BuJos. One of them caught my eye.
So I decided to try it out. Of course, super fail. Hahahaha! I only did my own adaptation of the rapid logging for today.
As you can see, I attempted the crystal layout. Sucky! Hahaha! It’s okay, practice makes perfect. So basically, a Bujo has its own symbols. The circle represents an event. The dots represent tasks. The star represents priority.
And lo! I actually achieved a lot today! The magic of BuJo!
When a task is completed, you put an axe on the dot. When it is postponed or migrated to a later day, you use the ‘>’ symbol. This way, you keep on top of your back log and you actually feel the sense of fulfilment compared to leaving incomplete tasks as they are. I am probably not using the BuJo key very well here but that is the beauty of it. It’s meant to serve you, not others, so use it according to your preference.
I decided to change the bottom two tasks into habits instead.
So basically, I will colour a crystal on the date that I managed to read Quran at Fajr and at night. I will colour a cup (or whatever it is that holds water that I drew haha) on the date that I managed to down a plain water. Since I have not achieved any, they remained colourless. We’ll see how it goes.
And so here’s Monday’s. 🙂
BuJo is quite an interesting organising tool or even hobby to pick up. Feel free to experiment with me! Don’t worry if your art sucks like mine. Let’s improve together!
The best way to do so is to practise, practise, practise!
