How I learned to love my Bullet Journal again

My quest for the perfect planner has been a life long process. Maybe it’s because I’m a perfectionist who schedules her life in 15-minute blocks.

Enter: the Bullet Journal.

So it began.

Of course, this is when a productivity or planning system is put to its true test. That’s exactly when it started to fail. Just like all the other planners, it failed to show me the way.

I started to feel judged.

So I tried again. This time, I let go of perfect.

The bullet journal is actually quite forgiving.

It lets me take a break when I need it. I can skip weeks in my planner when I just feel like I need to be more spontaneous. And I can just come back to a new week, without memory of missed weeks or even months.
