For the first time, I am sharing how I’ve set up my month in my Bullet Journal.
If you follow us on Instagram, you may have already seen my monthly spread. Of course, as soon as I finished it my toddler ran over with wet fingers and grabbed it.
She is very talented so she was able to position those little fingers right on my fresh lines, hence the smudges. Real life – I’m a bullet journal mom.
This gratitude log was new for me. I was inspired by Christina77Star (who credits being inspired by @my.life.in.a.bullet). I love the big boxes and the fact that I only have to come up with one thing each day.
In the past, I used BohoBerry’s spread where you list out 2 things you are grateful for each day. I personally just found that approach unsustainable to start since making a point to say what I am grateful for each day (and have it be original to things I’ve already captured) was really difficult. But I bet that works well when you’ve been doing this for some time.
I have a lot going on right now. I work full time, have 2 kids, I run this blog, and I just launched a second blog about blogging. That’s a lot for any one person to manage and I have to be thoughtful about how I spend my time as to not waste a second of it.
I came up with two spreads this month to help me stay focused on goals. The first was my mindmap, and this was to identify my critical goals in each area of my life.
Then I took the big tasks I have to accomplish, into this Impact/Effort grid. I forgot to list those when I took this picture. Impact is the y-axis and effort is the x-axis.
I’m hoping this helps me maximize my work time on the right things.
So there you have it. Those are my spreads for the month of August, along with dailies of course. Let me know if you like seeing this and I’ll keep sharing them! Also be sure to check out our favorite bullet journal supplies.
