Bullet Journal 2023

The big change that I’m making is that I’ll have three notebooks this year.

I’m going to have my bullet journal for the projects I’m working on and the life I want to have. It’s more of a past log than anything else. What did I do today to achieve my goals? Well, here’s a list of all the things I’ve already done. (Yes, there are some checklists, and goal spreads, too.)

I’m going to have a planner for the things I have right now and in the future. So… where do I have to be today? And maybe… uhm… not take the whole writer-notebook everywhere I go. On the one hand, I’m not sure that I want to talk about my writing every time I make a dentist’s appointment. On the other… when you carry something around with you, there’s always a chance you’ll lose it. Bad to worse.

And of course… MY notebook, which is just a notebook that is nice enough that my handwritten work will all stay in the same place, and I won’t wind up with things scattered through a stack of 25 cent back-to-school spiral notebooks at the end of the year.

The last few months of 2023 wound up getting a little hectic, so I finally gave up and bought the a Moleskine Classic dotted notebook that I could get locally. It’s a choice out of necessity, not preference. And I might regret it before I run out of pages. The paper isn’t all that great. The shape is weird (especially after the A5 notebooks I’d been using) and the size is… uhm… well, I was planning on using something bigger. I could go a little bigger than this one. The planner is also Moleskine. It’s a 2023 weekly planner. Pretty self-explanatory.

Is everything else about the same? Probably.

I’m adding a goals spread, which is basically everything I can think of to do in 2023.

And I’m only filling anything in about a month in advance.
