‘The Bullet Journal Method completely changed the way I work and my productivity levels immediately shot up. It’s a system I feel like I’ll use forever as it adapts with me and lends itself to my busy lifestyle’ Lily Pebbles
‘Bullet journaling is one of the most elegant and effective productivity systems I've ever encountered. It will not only help you get more organised but will also help you become a better person. I highly recommend this book (and the method it details) for anyone looking to get more out of life’ Cal Newport, author of Deep Work
‘Whether you are an avid journaler or have always wanted to explore the benefits of journaling, The Bullet Journal Method simplifies the power of putting pen to paper and will undoubtedly transform your life, in more ways than you can imagine’ Hal Elrod, author of The Miracle Morning
‘A month in, and I am surprised by how well this system has kept me on task. I have retired my other organising apps. The physicality of my notebook stops me from getting distracted when I am planning my day. It is nice to have a single log of where and how I spend my time. And, crucially, I am much more productive. My email inbox no longer dictates my priorities for the day’ Lilah Raptopoulos, Financial Times
‘As well as the journal’s ability to organise and prioritise tasks, the popularity of pages dedicated to tracking aspects such as mood and gratitude has led experts to believe that bullet journals could be effective in combatting anxiety – as they make tasks easier to approach and deal with’ Independent
‘I've been using my bullet journal daily since the beginning of January, and I'm low-key obsessed!’ Buzzfeed

I like the idea of breaking down long term goals and turning them into small actionable steps which will help bring you closer to your ultimate goal and objectives.
Overall I found the Bullet Journal organisational system to be simple but effective and the information in the book has been presented well and is easy to follow and there are some interesting stories to read about to.
Thanks for taking the time to read my review I hope you found it helpful in some way.
I started my own bullet journal and promptly neglected it, finding dissatisfaction in how it didn't measure up to this BuJo' master's. I started again, with a simpler design and found it to work for me, but I still felt like there was something missing from it. I enjoyed setting up my monthly spreads but dreaded returning back to it, on a day-to-day basis, viewing it as another chore that was added into my already packed lifestyle.
When I saw Boho Berry's rave review for this book then I knew that reading this was the step I needed to take in making my bullet journal work better for me. And I was correct, but not quite in the way I first thought.
I assumed this book would teach its reader the 'hows' of bullet journal, instead it focused on the 'whys'. On times it seems to neglect bullet journals all together, as it forced the reader to assess their reason behind all of their daily actions, and to why aspects of their lives weren't currently working for them. It is only later that he introduced just exactly how bullet journals could be an aid in curing that. Areas such as imperfection and control were covered and it really opened my eyes to how I had been bullet journalling wrong, all these many months.
It made me realise that part of the bullet journal appeal for me was purely aesthetic. I loved to view artistic daily spreads, complete with calligraphy headers and washi tape dividers. For me, this didn't work because there was no 'why' behind my wanting it. Aesthetics wasn't enough and the reason I felt such dissatisfaction was that this particular bullet journal set-up had no purpose in my life and so I was ultimately failing to connect with it. It became just another chore I had added, without making my daily processes any easier.
Bullet journalling is an extremely helpful tool but also an extremely personal one, which is why no two will look the same. This life guide/bullet journalling how-to instructed me on organising my day, better managing my time, and transferring my dreams into goals, which is what makes this perfect for amateur and expert Bu-Jo'ers alike.
Unfortunately, having read the book, I don't feel like I can get started with bullet journalling. I don't feel like I fully understand the method, how all the pieces fit together, or what to do when.
An extra chapter, with a real step-by-step guide, would have been very useful to bring everything together.
Perhaps this sort of material is online, at the website, but sadly from reading the book I wouldn't really know how to get going and keep going.
