So you have made the decision to start a Bullet Journal, or perhaps a Creative Time Tracking Journal, and now what? What is the first thing that strikes your mind? I have one word for you, the answer.
Creativity. Yes, the one word that will cause the biggest stir in your creative thinking. Why is it so important?
For me, every day I check my Daily Journal or Creative Time Tracking Journal. The first thing I do is to go through all of my entries for the day. How did you spend your time this morning? Was it useful, enjoyable, and productive?
Once I have looked at the entries, I get into the creative stage. I take a minute to make a note of the things that are coming to mind, and then I put the paper down. During this time, I am not thinking about anything else.
Now, I need to find my thoughts on the different tasks I had done, and brainstorming about the things I will do in the future. I am not thinking about anything else during this time, so I am not wasting my brain power. This creative thinking time will help me to be better organized and accomplish more of the tasks that come up throughout the day.
Remember, if you use the brainpower for the task, it will get there much faster. If you can utilize the brainpower while you are doing the task, it will leave your mind empty of all of those thoughts that are unnecessary. You will be able to focus on the task at hand and execute it as quickly as possible.
Another thing to remember is to set aside time every day to jot down everything that comes to mind. You do not have to type everything down on paper, but I find writing it out makes the task seem more real.
I like to think that jotting down new, creative ideas will keep me on the right track, so to speak. Every day I will move forward, writing down the things that come to mind, and then jotting them down.
Next, when I am planning my creative projects, I want to be sure that I have enough space in my journal to properly jot everything down. I want to include enough space to write an entry, and then some more. I want my notebook to look like it is filled with ideas and paper.
Now that you know how to use your Bullet Journal for inspiration, it is time to plan. You will need to fill your notebook with creative ideas. Take time to put your best ideas into your notebook, and you will be on your way to having a good creative year.
The best way to get creative ideas is by using your Bullet Journal, or other journal, as inspiration. Take the time to brainstorm different ideas and get them into your notebook. You will be able to jot down your creative ideas, brainstorming, and set the tone for a very creative year!
