The long-awaited first book by the founder of the enormously popular Bullet Journal organizational system. For years Ryder Carroll tried countless organizing systems, online and off, but none of them fit the way his mind worked. Out of sheer necessity, he developed a method called the Bullet Journal that helped him become consistently focused and effective. When he started sharing his system with friends who faced similar challenges, it went viral. Just a few years later, to his astonishment, Bullet Journaling is a global movement. The Bullet Journal Method is about much more than organizing your notes and to-do lists. It's about what Carroll calls "intentional living": weeding out distractions and focusing your time and energy in pursuit of what's truly meaningful, in both your work and your personal life. It's about spending more time with what you care about, by working on fewer things. His new book shows you how to... * Track the past: Using nothing more than a pen and paper, create a clear and comprehensive record of your thoughts. * Order the present: Find daily calm by tackling your to-do list in a more mindful, systematic, and productive way. * Design the future: Transform your vague curiosities into meaningful goals, and then break those goals into manageable action steps that lead to big change. Carroll wrote this book for frustrated list-makers, overwhelmed multitaskers, and creatives who need some structure. Whether you've used a Bullet Journal for years or have never seen one before, The Bullet Journal Method will help you go from passenger to pilot of your own life.

A very enlightening read on how to better organize ones life through a little writing and perseverance.

I'm going with the idea that you make the Bullet Journal work for you, not that I have to be a slave to the arty look of the thing. That repels me as I want my art and life to be elsewhere...out in the real world.

I'll be sticking with my trusty biro and not worrying about the look. But that's the great thing about this system, you can make it what you want it to be.

a beautiful book with amazing ideas and great tips! just not for me... I feel this is a little too "out-there."
I try avoiding books that make me feel like a failure -- at all my different organization attempts, but it is me (I guess).

Have I mentioned that the cover is beautiful! it attracts you like a magical spell

After seeing bullet journaling tutorials on YouTube and my colleagues' incredible creations I became interested, but not convinced that this artsy productivity tool was for me. Reading Ryder Carroll's book I realized that it can be as creative or minimal as you want it to be. At the core, the Bullet Journal is a mindfulness tool. The Bullet Journaling Method gives you all the tools you need to get started and Carroll’s personal story as well as stories from BuJo users whose lives have been positively impacted by utilizing the tools. I am on board to test this method for 2019 and feel inspired to live a more intentional and reflective life after reading the book cover to cover.

Ryder Carroll also has done a Ted talk! Check it out for further bullet journal method inspiration.
