Bullet Journal Trial and Error: How to Test Out Different Setups and Discover What Works for You

Juni 23, 2023 3 min lesen.

Embarking on your bullet journal journey can be both exciting and daunting. With so many layout options, themes, and techniques out there, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the possibilities. But fear not! The beauty of bullet journaling lies in its flexibility and adaptability. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the process of testing out different setups and discovering what works best for you. So grab your favourite journal and pen and let's dive in!

1. Start with the basics

Before you get carried away with intricate designs and elaborate spreads, it's important to familiarise yourself with the basic elements of a bullet journal. These typically include an index, future log, monthly log, and daily or weekly log. Start by creating simple versions of these spreads and using them for a few weeks to get a feel for how the system works.

Tip: As you use your basic spreads, take note of what you like and dislike about them. This will help you identify areas for improvement and customization in the next step.

2. Experiment with Different Layouts

Now that you have a solid foundation, it’s time to start experimenting with different layouts. Try out various styles of monthly, weekly and daily spreads to see what suits your needs and preferences best. Some popular layout options include vertical, horizontal, and grid-style weekly spreads, as well as habit trackers, meal planners, and goal-setting pages.

Tip: Don’t be afraid to mix and match elements from different layouts. For example, you might find that you prefer a vertical weekly spread with a separate habit tracker page, or a monthly spread that includes space for goal-setting.

3. Play with Themes and Aesthetics

One of the most fun and rewarding parts of bullet journaling is the chance to let your creative side run wild through themes and aesthetics. Feel free to explore various colour palettes, hand-drawn doodles, funky stickers, and washi tapes to create a style that truly vibes with you. Keep in mind that your bullet journal is a personal haven that should showcase your one-of-a-kind personality and taste.

Tip: Give a shot at picking a theme inspired by the current season, an upcoming celebration, or even your go-to colour. For a dose of inspo, don’t hesitate to scroll through Instagram, Pinterest, and some bullet journal groups to get those creative juices flowing.

4. Track Your Progress and Make Adjustment

As you test out different setups, it’s important to regularly assess how well they are working for you. Are you staying organised and on track with your goals? Are there any elements of your journal that you consistently forget to update or find cumbersome to use? Use this feedback to make adjustments and fine-tune your bullet journal system.

Tip: Consider setting aside some time each at the end of each month for a “journal review”. Reflect on what worked well, what didn’t, and what changes you’d like to make for the upcoming month.

5. Embrace the Trial and Error Process

Finally, remember that bullet journaling is all about trial and error. It’s unlikely that you will find your perfect set-up right away, and that’s okay! Embrace the process of experimentation and be open to change. As your life evolves, so too should your bullet journal.

Tip: If you’re worried about “messing up” your bullet journal, try using a pencil or erasable pen for your layouts, or practice on scrap paper before committing to your journal. This will give you the freedom to make mistakes and learn from them without fear.

Discovering your perfect bullet journal set up is a unique and ever-evolving adventure. By kicking off with the fundamentals, daring to experiment with diverse layouts and aesthetics, keeping an eye on your progress, and whole-heartedly embracing the trial and error journey, you’re paving the way towards crafting a system that is tailor-made just for you. So go ahead, let your creativity shine, and immerse yourself in the wonderful world of bullet journaling.

For her, art is an avenue to express the depth of her emotions or better yet, her reality.
