Bullet Journalling here I come…

My word of the year is organised.

It’s not cool or adventurous but it will be about goal setting and perhaps more importantly making them into bite size chunks so I actually finish them. I have been currently reading up on SMART* goals and how I can realistically use them. There is no use me stating by 3rd Dec 2019, I will have a publishing deal when;

a. Im haven’t started editing my manuscript

b. I’m still in draft zero of MS # 2

c. I’m still drafting short story #1 of four I want to write this year.

Not to mention work.

And everything else I need to fit in.

As part of being organised, I have decided to foray into the bullet journal world #bujo. I became interested in this early 2018, I bought a journal and then preceded to watch countless YOUTUBE videos on how to do it. For me that was a big mistake. I was overwhelmed by the artistic talent of some of the presenters. After three days, I quickly abandoned the project and every time I caught sight of the journal I started to worry about my lack of organisational skills. Fast forward 11 months, and I achieved about 20 percent of what I wanted to (ironically at my day job I appeared to reach about 90 percent). My work and personal life philosophy ( organised vs. embrace the chaos) was not going to become my ongoing philosophy for 2019.

Here I am on the path to being organised, considering my favourite phrase is I will wing it, this could be interesting.

What goals are you aiming for?

Do you need an accountability partner?

*SMART stands for specific, measurable, assignable, relevant and time based. There are some awesome YOUTUBE videos and articles on it.
