Bullet Journal: 100% Analogue Way to Put Your Life in Order

Who would've thought that you can get so much done with a pen and a notebook?

Pen and notebooks are normal as an accessory for most Lomographers. We jot down ideas, draw (or at least we try), keep track of our film rolls, or even write scripts for our LomoKino movies, and sometimes we even use them to write love letters.

The other day while reading my timeline on Twitter I discovered the Bullet Journal. It is an incredibly simple system (even though it took years to develop) created by Ryder Carroll, a designer from Brooklyn. I find the system a brilliant way to organize your stuff the analogue way.

The first thing you need is a pen and a notebook that you are able to take along with you.

The following video has a brief introduction of how the Bullet Journal works:

    I try the same with my notebook "The future is analogue, vienna". In my notebook, there are three categories: LOMO locations I´ll try and had try. The next part is for cameras most I try. The last part of the book is for experiments with film, "pimp the camera", and other interesting parts of photography.
    Remember, a computer can get damage, your analouge notebook needs no energy. :-)

    @cornelius_rost that's a great idea! sort of like a big wish list! I totally agree a notebook won't shut down on you and besides it¡s good to slow down and write instead of just pounding keys...

    @guanatos "slow down" your life, that`s the key. Because in our life, there are enough "rush hour". :-)

    I think this is the perfect journalling/task organizing technique for me. I also love grid notebooks so that gives it extra points hee hee! Thanks for sharing! :)
