I tried at least 3 to-do apps but I still wasn't meeting goals. I was stressed. Successful, sure, but disorganized. I knew I could do better at life, I just didn't know how.
Then, my cousin Chuck (@chuckfeerick) came to visit. He took out this "bullet journal" thing and gave me an impromptu tutorial. I thumbed through the versatile life organizer. "Looks complicated, but I should really give it a shot."
I started a week later. Took some discipline to learn the format, but that was the small step backward I needed to launch forward. Months passed, and I learned the curves of my journal. Certain bits weren't helping me and other facets needed tweaking to fit my freelance lifestyle. Be on the lookout for a tour of my bullet journal and its particulars.
