In October, I didn’t use my bullet journal much. It happens constantly. I add too many trackers and things to update regularly that as soon as I forget to fill them in a couple days in a row, I lose all interest in using the system, inevitably making me less productive.
With that in mind, I decided to completely strip back my set up. I got rid of all trackers, and anything I didn’t feel was effective, which was literally everything. I decided I was going to focus on the content of my pages, rather than how they looked. I opted for a three-colour theme of autumnal colours, so I didn’t get overwhelmed by making it look good and artistic, etc…
These are the only spreads I have this month. It’s very simplistic, which I’m hoping will help increase my productivity and how often I use my bullet journal. For 2019, I’m debating whether or not to get just a regular planner, so I don’t have to make all of the spreads myself, which does take a lot of time I don’t really have right now, and definitely won’t next year, as we get to exam season.
