The first week of January flew right by, and I struggled to stop and notice. We celebrated New Years, I went back to work, gymnastics and swim lessons started, the kids got sick, the keys on my computer broke, and in the midst of all of that I started my January 30 Day challenge. So, I’m finally able to sit down and talk about it.
My inspiration this time was from a magazine article I read in the January issue of Parents. The article was titled “This is Why You’ll Want to Start Bullet Journaling“, To me it was essentially a glorified to-do-list, but two things resonated with me.
- These are smaller goals you make daily and cross off after completion at the end of the day.
- You will feel motivated and accomplished when you complete these tasks.
So, I figured it was worth a try. I made my first list short and sweet–four manageable tasks for the day– and felt awesome when I accomplished it all.
Each night I review what I have accomplished and create a new list for the next day. I’ve added other positives about my day as well as one thing I am thankful for that day. So far, I am loving it, and it takes very little time.
If you are interested in bullet journaling, check out the originators at bulletjournal.com. They have a tutorial to walk you through the process. The first ten days have gone pretty well. I’ll let you know my results at the end of the month. Perhaps you’ll even give it a try.
