Recently, I discovered the Bullet Journal analog system for productivity management.
In a very brief time, it’s completely changed the way I approach everything having to do with planning, scheduling, and journaling. Take a look at this brief video:
It’s transformed the way I organize my professional and personal pursuits. So much so that I’ve dedicated this site to exploring more ways to bring value to others who also use the system.
I’ve also created a 26-page PDF Quick Reference Guide and a 4-Lesson Power-User eCourse; both are free when you subscribe!
After you subscribe, please go to the email account you entered and confirm your subscription. I’ll then send you the link to download the Quick Reference Guide & Lessons 1-4 of the Power-User eCourse.

If it doesn't fit your personal style and/or preferences, it's not going to last long.
Bullet Journal gives you the freedom to use it however you want, however it best fits your preferences – to track the past, organize the present, and plan for the future.
