I don’t make many New Year’s resolution because I have a long history of not keeping them. Sometimes I write down goals but mostly I lose the papers that contain those goals and aspirations.
So, this year I’m going to create a sort of bullet journal to keep track of my to-do lists, important dates, memorable moments, favorite Scriptures, gift idea list, books I’ve read, blog ideas list, and inspirational quotes.
My goal is actually to be flexible while trying to find a system of keeping all of my thoughts in one place (rather than the multitude of brightly colored sticky notes in adorable shapes that I lose on a regular basis).
I do have a few goals that I’ve set for myself and I plan to choose an additional personal goal each month. My goals for 2015……
- Read through the Bible
- Read 2 books per month
- Exercise at least 3 days per week
- Take 5 classes for myself (most likely through Coursera or the Great Courses)
- Make a menu plan for each month
Those will be written in the very front of my new journal so I don’t lose sight of them.
Here are some good posts about the different types of bullet journals and how to create one that works for you. (And for the record – mine is a book with lines, not grids, as I think the boxes might make me a little crazy. Also, mine is super simple at this point).
