Good Morning, everyone! Welcome back to Six Days in My Bullet Journal. Today is Day 4. In the event you missed the prior entries, I will link them down below. During this series, I am taking you step by step through my daily planning session. I will outline how the daily page is set up and the thought process that goes into planning my day.
Day 3 Evening Reflection
During evening reflection, I spend some time filling in the spaces that still need detail. I note the book I read, and all the tasks that were completed. I completed all my tasks from Day 3 – even getting my inbox to zero. That was no small feat. Now that I’ve done that, I expect to keep it that way. I review the food log and mark off the habit tracker. Lastly, I journal for the day.
Day 3 went well, and I had a super day. Given it was Thursday, and I usually plan this day rather light, I did well to get everything completed. I really think that by sharing my daily planning with you, I’ve forced myself into pacing the week really well.
Day 4 Planning Session
Steps to Building My Daily Layout
- Use Tombow brush marker 173 to draw a line at the top and the bottom of the page.
- Apply butterfly sticker to the page.
- Use Tombow brush marker 933 to highlight the following prompts
- Day of the Week
- Personal Goal
- Book Read
- Habits (including the completion boxes for each habit)
- Use the Faber-Castell PITT artist pen (M) to write out “Friday”, “journal”, “food”, and “habits”
- Use the same artist pen to draw the line separator between the journal area and the food and habit tracker area.
- Use the Faber-Castell PITT artist pen (F) to write out “Personal Goal”, “Book Read”, the different habits, along with outlining the completion boxes.
- Use the same pen to fill in the personal goal. It’s Friday, and I want to “finish the week strong”. That’s my mantra for the day.
- Use the same pen to write out the to-do list. As usual, I began with the items I need to get done in the morning before work – Morning Pages and upload this post. Then I added the typical Friday chores to the list – Laundry, re-make bed, grocery shopping. Lastly, I added two additional tasks – SUS and LC #9. I may or may not get these completed. If not, they are right there in my view to migrate over to Saturday. Sometimes I do that on Friday – toss tasks on the list that I can keep in view.
And that’s it! As I do these daily posts, you can start to see how helpful this time is for me every day. Each part of my day is accounted for as I set my intentions. There is no time wasted, and things are getting done. Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for Day 5! Happy Friday, and enjoy your day.
