|50 Collections & Lists for you Bullet Journal|
Starting your first bullet journal is a thrilling experience. From the first time you fan through your new notebook, the clean pages practically beg to be filled with rows of tidy inked words.
Now, for the hard part. What do you write?
If you are staying true to the original bullet journal system, you’ll begin with your future planning, monthly spreads, habit trackers, and dailies. At its very core, bullet journaling is a productivity system, so you simply fill it with tasks and ideas you don’t want to forget.
Too many to-do lists start to get me down. I use them daily, but I also like my journal to be a place for ideas and references. I’m a creative thinker. Collections (such as my lists to improve your writing) help me catalogue the rodeo of ideas and distractions constantly rattling around my brai—Squirrel! What was I saying?
So, you’re ready to take your bullet journal beyond the basics? I’ve rounded up 50 of my favorite collections by category. Some are exercises in self-discovery and gratitude, while others can be used to keep tabs on important names, titles, data, and ongoing projects.
A word of CAUTION: Please, DON’T try to take on this full list at once. Pick and choose a few that fit your goals and lifestyle.
