Manage your work efficiently with the Bullet Journal

Tips for professionals 09 February 2021

Although the Bullet Journal is widely known for its creative aspects, above all it’s a fantastic tool for organising your time. Use it to keep your notes, appointments and tasks together in one place, based on your own personalised filing system. All you need to create a Bullet Journal is a tablet-sized or A5 notebook, a pen and a little bit of common sense…

What exactly is a bullet journal?

Simple to create and use, the Bullet Journal is intended to be a tailor-made tool to manage your time as well as possible. This particular notebook operates on the basis of an ingenious filing system. Thanks to the symbols determined in advance, you just need to define your objectives and missions for each year, each month and each day, then bring them to life as you go. And, since it is a fully customisable tool, everyone is free to add criteria specific to their profession or organisation.

Multiple advantages

If the Bullet Journal wave has taken hold in the organisational world, it is because this tool has many positive points:

  • Mental unloading: The bullet journal allows you to free your mind. Indeed, once your to-dos have been written down on paper, they cannot be forgotten. In addition, writing them allows you to memorise them… but if you are really afraid of not remembering them, you can always place a reminder on a page scanned with SCRIBZEE.
  • Centralising everything in one place: Have you ever looked for information scribbled on the corner of a notebook or a piece of scrap paper without ever finding it? By using the bullet journal method, you can group all of your notes in one notebook. And if, despite everything, something escapes you, the SCRIBZEE handwriting search engine will allow you to find any information in your scanned notes with one click.
  • Free up time: Thanks to this clever filing system, you will be able to prioritise and increase your productivity by freeing up time for essential tasks. Indeed, you can easily organise all your subjects by criteria (tasks, notes, projects, appointments…) and by weighting elements (priority, inspiring, to develop, to plan, to cancel…). Prioritisation will also allow you to avoid procrastinating … ideal for moving forward with your projects at work.
  • Set goals: Tools such as trackers make it possible to observe projects in the short, medium or long term in order to achieve the set goals. This tool is particularly practical since it allows you to follow an achievement visually.

A unique professional tool

The Bullet Journal system means you’re much less likely to forget something important. View your whole day’s schedule at a glance. You can also see how your projects are progressing from one month to the next. But it can also remind you to get back in touch with a prospective customer you met at a previous trade show, thanks to the valuable information you noted in your Bullet Journal. And finally, you’ll never forget your mother-in-law’s birthday or to make an appointment with your dentist again. There are lots of tutorials on the internet with practical tips on how to set up your Bullet Journal and make it part of your everyday life.
