Why starting a Bullet Journal is the best thing you can do in 2017 – Including why It’ll skyrocket your productivity
In this modern digital world, there are 100’s if not 1000’s of ways that you can stay organised. We have an abundance of apps, software and websites that all aim to help us stay organised, stay on track but more importantly for them, stay online. For years I’ve struggled with organisation, not just with my business but with my personal life too. Anybody that knows me will know that I’m always late, usually miss appointments and generally am a mess when it comes to these things.
This, however, is no longer the case, all thanks to a handy little piece of stationery that fits into my backpack.
My Bullet Journal.
What is a Bullet Journal?
A Bullet Journal doesn’t have to be a specific type of journal or diary. Bullet Journalling is a style of journalling developed by Ryder Carroll who is a digital product designer living in Brooklyn, New York. Dubbed an analogue system for the digital age, Bullet Journalling uses a few key styles to help you document and customise your journal to how you want it.
Ryder sees it as an evolving, adaptable practice meant to be self-curated as you determine what works best for you.
Note from Jamie: This is a guest post written by one of my good friends Meg. She has a ton of experience when it comes to Pinterest and after getting a lot of advice from her personally on how to improve my traffic using Pinterest, I asked her to compile a Pinterest guide for you guys. Nailing Pinterest is one of the fastest ways to grow traffic to your site and I know a lot of bloggers who have doubled and sometimes quadrupled the amount of traffic they are receiving after following tips the same as Meg is offering below.
I hope you get a ton of useful info out of today’s post and please get stuck into Pinterest and follow both myself and Meg on Pinterest and share your success with us directly!
I’ve talked briefly in a few other posts about setting SMART goals, but I think it’ll be beneficial to go into a little more detail to help any of you who are considering starting your own remote business, lifestyle business, blog. To be honest, once I figured out how to use SMART goals I even started using them in my day to day life! (Who doesn’t love setting up goals for your laundry, right?)
Last week I talked to you all about the importance of building a great first impression with your readers and how in a short space of time you can either invite your reader in to learn more, or have them bounce back out and move onto the next web page (You can catch up on that post here).
