Lessons from…On the Wings of My Pen
What is a Daily page?
Daily page set-up:
Evon’s version (more detail below #6)
⦁ Top -Daily quote or scripture verse
⦁ Chosen daily washi tape divider
⦁ Date Banner and Weather doodles including Temperature
⦁ List of daily To Dos, activities, events, appointments, comments on the day, meals, tracking comments, business, etc.
⦁ Doodles, stamps, and stickers added at will for a splash of color and easy, fun creativity.
Page Set-up Comparison:
1. Minimalist – Ryder Carroll – No decoration – Functional use only (Analog system that all other bullet journal systems have evolved from) Notice that Ryder’s daily pages consist of only To Do’s, Events, Appointments, etc. Ryder lists 4 days per page in his bullet journal. You can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/user/bulletjournal
2. Semi-minimalist – Kara Benz (Boho Berry) -few doodles. handwriting practice, daily timeline, no washi tape or stickers. Kara uses Ryder’s bullet checklist. You can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcKyr0v7_1A
3. Creative bullet journal daily -Gretchen Hope -Washi tape, stickers, tip-ins, journal prompts, project life cards with quotes, task lists, smashbook add ins -prompt lists, Cute and scrapbooky, doodles, stamps, quad planner, and journaling space on daily. Gretchen uses Ryder’s bullet checklist. You can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDttRueKfFU
4. Creative bullet journal dailies – ME!! 🙂 ~Evon Robinson -I find this works well for me right now. I love putting quotes at the top (as a page heading); then separate the quote from the rest of my daily with a strip of washi tape; next I place my date banner doodle to the left and my weather doodles and daily temperatures to the right. Next in the daily layout, I list my daily To Dos, appointments, events, BJC postings, planning, etc, ending with my BJC daily member tracking. You can view my bullet journal daily log in the posted photos below… 🙂 <3
As a valuable tool…
I hope this list is helpful in giving you various ways to set up and work with your daily journal To Do lists. This, by far, is not an exhaustive list. There are hundreds of thousands of ways to work within the Bullet Journal (Ryder Carroll, originator) and these many ways are evolving on a daily basis as more people discover the flexibility, ease of use, goal setting, tracking, planning, recording, creativity, and evaluation of the Bullet journal. It’s an amazing tool to be sure! And in Your hands…it’s even more powerful! So crack open a bullet journal today and step into the amazing world so many are experiencing and enjoying as their GO TO friend!
