The Bullet Journal - A Cool New Pen and Paper Productivity System [VIDEO]

Last night I stumbled across a simple but seemingly effective productivity system for anyone who likes to use good ol' pen and paper to get things done.

It's called Bullet Journal, and you'll find a video that describes how it works below.

I'm currently a fan of doing things digitally (because I love the ability to edit information and tasks easily), but this system does have me rethinking my approach a bit...

Watch the video and let me know what you think:

Become A Better You In 30 Seconds

Let's begin by implanting a simple command into your brain...

Read this following command - out loud:

When I have 30 seconds of free time...

Then I will (choose only one or two):

  • Stand up straight as well as feel confident and powerful
  • Take a deep breath, hold it, and release
  • Express gratitude for something specific I'm grateful for
  • Smile as wide as I can
  • Say an affirmation
  • Visualize a goal of mine and get excited about it
  • Tell myself that I am fearless!
  • Relive an awesome experience in my life - visualize it and feel it

As you can see, each of these actions are simple, but they provide a positive benefit to you in some way - they change how you think, feel, and act.

Over time, repeating at least one of these simple actions every time you have 30 seconds of free time (standing, sitting, waiting, walking) will create a compound result in your life that will change your overall behavior in powerful ways.

Why does this work?

Because you're giving your brain a specific command to carry out, and you're telling it when to do it (when you have 30 seconds of free time).

Both of these factors combine to create a simple and actionable success strategy that you actually do!

Try it!

To Summarize

Tell yourself at least once a day that...

When I have 30 seconds of free time...

Then I will:

(Randomly do one of the actions listed above - focus on only one or two at a time)

Remember to do the action you choose with feeling, intention, and purpose.
