BULLET – Concept calendar / personal assistant for iOS
I started using the Bullet Journal about a month ago. The system is great, but sometimes I kept forgetting to check the little book. However, the system of bullets definitely improved my productivity and kept me on task. This is my attempt to bring the Bullet Journal concept to the digital world in the same spirit as it is in the analog world: quick, easy, and flexible. In other words, no tedious dials/spinners/buttons. BULLET will recognize your finger if you draw a circle, box, or dot – no annoying dialog to determine which is which.
Watch the original video here ( x ) Before I saw this video, I always kept a book for my homework. I use grid paper and it’s perfect for BJ… Heh. After watching this, it helped me to start developing a system I’m currently satisfied with.
To-do apps don’t work with me. It always just sits on my screen with a notification and swiping something doesn’t feel as satisfying as crossing it out victoriously with a pen. ^_^
LEGENDS ( you can also do it like this ) Helps you quickly figure out what certain tasks are at a glance. The colours are for my spiraldexes which I will not be discussing unless you guys request it. c:
Pages This is basically what my pages look like. I write the numbers at the lower corners.I also added sticky notes for extra stuff like memorizing my moral definitions. :p
Calendar ( x ) If you watch the video, you’re supposed to list out the dates but I prefer both, so I draw a calendar and paste it in my book and list out all the really appointments/stuff I have to do in my drawn calendar and some not-important-but-still-worth-noting notes in my list-calendar.
Index Just write down the pages as shown in the video. Pretty simple.
Other things you can include: I also stick some motivational images on the last page and stuff like that. Spiraldexes can be fun but they tend to be a little time consuming to draw or at least, I can seem to use them effectively. :c
Have pages especially for grocery lists/ grades/ etc.
Page full of favourite recipes
Stick an envelope at the back cover and fill it with motivational inspiration!
