Simple easy and uncluttered spread the ideas for Bullet journaling + January Plan with me

We have spoken about this before. Comparison. And this became really evident during a recent discussion on the official Bullet journal Instagram page. Here is the post – You will see that the post mentioned us – because we fought for equality and won!

So the original post said “content over presentation” and my comment talked about how – once a newbie understands the fundamentals of the BuJo system, then branching out into  artistic journals shouldn’t be shunned, or shamed. Essentially its making productivity work for you, in a customised way. There are literally zero rules and there are no right or wrong ways to do this. I think over time it has essentially morphed into personalised planning over “The Bullet Journal Method”.

How can I do a Bullet Journal if I am not Creative or Artistic?

So one of the major comments, requests etc that come up for newbies is “but I am not artistic or creative” this doesn’t mean you can’t create a bullet journal, and personalise your journal? Noooooo, just have a look at our minimal bullet journal spreads, not one of those spreads are complicated, but they are gorgeous in their own right, and you shouldn’t feel that just because you lack artistic skills, will hamper your ability.

The best way to start your bullet journal

If this is your first time creating one, there are some simple tips, that many many many webpages cover. You don’t need us to tell you this, as a simple google will give you the low down.

You start with a contents page.

Move onto an annual calendar, so you can see your year at a glance. Is there anything else you are tracking over an entire year? Pop that up front or in the back – there are no rules remember. There are things you can add like birthday trackers, goals etc. But keep it simple, see what style works best for you. I find that if you start off hot and heavy, you might lose motivation, and thats the worst as you’ll start to think the BuJo is not for you when in fact its for everyone and you’re sticking to self imposed rules which is absolutely ridiculous.
