Can a Bullet Journal help you keep up with your to-do list? 14 MIN, 38 SEC

The Bullet Journal is a combination of a planner, and diary and to-do list that you create in a blank notebook. Some people go all out, creating elaborate multi-colored designs for their calendars and habit-trackers. Some people even make careers off it online. Five years ago, Ryder Carroll posted a video to YouTube explaining his Bullet Journal system. Now he has a new book out called “The Bullet Journal Method: Track the Past, Order the Present, Design the Future”
