Can I Use Bullet Journal For Work
This is the first thing you’d ask, and the answer is, of course, you can!
And there are so many benefits of actually creating Bullet Journal page ideas for work:
- Get organized and increase your efficiency. You never want to get overwhelmed or distracted and mess up at work because you’re not organized. A Bullet Journal can help you with that.
- Remember ALL the things. Forgetting some tasks and responsibilities is not something you can afford at work. But keeping it all in your head can be way too overwhelming. Your Bullet Journal will be your second brain to keep all that information.
- Everything is documented. Your Bullet Journal can be a fun way to keep everything in one place and document everything. This can come with a lot of advantages for your work.
Should You Create A Separate Bullet Journal For Work
The next question I see people ask is if you should use your usual Bullet Journal for work or create a new one.
And this really depends on you and how you use your Bullet Journal.
As somebody who owns my own business and work from home – I kind of mix things up and mostly use just one journal. Owning your own business means that you’re probably always working, so I don’t feel like I need a lot of division.
But I feel like if I worked in a corporate job, I’d want to have things divided so that on the weekend, I could forget all about my work and just deal with personal things.
Also, it might be distracting to have your personal planning at work. You don’t want to open your journal to take meeting notes and end up thinking through how you’ll schedule your weekend around your kid’s basketball game.
Ultimately, I’d recommend trying both and seeing what works best for you. Just make sure you have the pages that help you and that you use them.
How To Start A Bullet Journal For Work
If you decide to start a separate journal, you set it up exactly like your usual journal, with pretty much the same pages.
The trick here is just to customize them to be work-related. Here is how you do it.
Key And Index
These are some of the basic pages, and they play pretty much the same role for your work Bullet Journal.
Just add some special work-related symbols, like a symbol for a meeting or a deadline.
You’ll definitely need to have a Bullet Journal index to make sure that you have an easy way to find any possible information inside your journal.
The Bullet Journal future log is perfect for planning your future and for your work; you can use it to add any deadlines, future meeting plans, professional conferences, and such.
It’s also really useful if you travel for work a lot – you can add all the information here.
Bullet Journal monthly log is a perfect place to create an overview of your month.
For your work Bullet Journal try adding deadlines, monthly goals, team meetings, and some more work-related events and tasks.
Weekly / Daily Log
It’s pretty much the same as you’d use in your personal Bullet Journal; you just fill it out with more work-related things and probably fewer other elements, like trackers or daily doodles and such.
And just like that, you have a complete Bullet Journal setup, but with more work-related content. To learn more, you can check my Beginner’s Guide To Set Up Your Bullet Journal. Many pages are the same; you just have to switch focus to your work-related things.
Of course there are some more specific pages, so let’s look into that.
