Good Morning, everyone!  Welcome back to Six Days in My Bullet Journal.  Today is Day 5.  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 4 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 fill in the food log where needed and the habit tracker.   Lastly, I journal for the day. 

For this blog entry, I did things a bit differently.  I did not complete evening reflection last night.  I was just wiped from the week and couldn’t bring myself to do it.  As a result, I completed it this morning shortly after I got up.  Because I was so tired last night, I did not get all the items on my To-Do list completed.  I prioritized and got the most-needed items done.  I will not beat myself up for what I did not complete, because I know I did a lot yesterday.  Plus, it was Friday.  Today is a new day, and I can work on my list again today.

Day 4 went smoothly, and I got a LOT done at work and at home.  I balanced it out really well.  I may have paced out the week well, but I also knew going into Friday that I might not get all the things done.      

Day 5 Planning Session

Steps to Building My Daily Layout

  1. Use Tombow brush marker 636 to draw a line at the top and the bottom of the page.
  2. Apply butterfly sticker to the page.
  3. Use Tombow brush marker 933 to highlight the following prompts
    1. Day of the Week
    2. Personal Goal
    3. Book Read
    4. Journal
    5. Food
    6. Habits (including the completion boxes for each habit)
  4. Use the Faber-Castell PITT artist pen (M) to write out “Saturday”, “journal”, “food”, and “habits”
  5. Use the same artist pen to draw the line separator between the journal area and the food and habit tracker area.
  6. Use the Faber-Castell PITT artist pen (F) to write out “Personal Goal”, “Book Read”, the different habits, along with outlining the completion boxes.
  7. Use the same pen to fill in the personal goal.  It’s Saturday, and I want to “Get It Done”.  That’s my mantra for the day.     
  8. 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 – Morning Pages and upload this post.  Then I added the things that I want to get done after lunch (because I’ve taken the day rather slowly today) – wash my quilt, clean off stairs, and clear out and organize my bureau.  Lastly, I added two additional tasks – SUS and LC #9 from yesterday.  I will work these two items in over the whole weekend.  Whether I get these items done, they are in view and on my radar.      

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 6!  I will be wrapping up this series and preparing myself for the week ahead.  Enjoy your day!
