So far I'm doing well to get the basics of the BuJo process down. It's helping me to remember longer term projects I otherwise would have forgotten about. I finally have a page dedicated to the current NF challenge, with little shuriken logos to mark completed tasks.

Awesome! I know it can sometimes take a while to get in a good bujo groove.

That's exactly what a bujo is amazing for. :)

Weekly Prompt #3 : Practice

 

This week I want us to think of something we wish our journal had. Do you wish you had prettier handwriting or do you wish your lines were straighter? Pick 1 thing you wish you could do better and practice. Either on a blank page or a stray piece of paper, practice doing. Do it once a day for a short amount of time. If you don't have a chunk of time to do it, break it down into smaller time incitements. 

 

Practice Examples : Brush script, maybe you want to practice daily bujo, new font, dividers, etc

I like it. I'll practice adding more proper black lines to my bujo. I always do pencil doodles and writing in pencil. The commitment of ink pen, proper, non-erasible ink pen... yeah... I'd like to have more of that in my bujo. I'll give it a whirl.

Weekly Prompt #4 : Reflection

 

Congrats for making it to week 4! This week I want us to review our progress.

 

How are you doing with your tracking?

Do you still make time for creativity?

Are you still practicing?

Do you do a daily review or weekly review to help keep yourself accountable?

Oh I have been doing bujo things, but just holding course.   I feel like, for me, the BuJo is more about keeping track of random thoughts of things I need to do or want, and less an outlet for creativity.     Since I try to get some art time in 4x a week as is, most of my creative floon is pushed toward that.      But!  I have learned that unique tracking options are encouraging and motivating for me to use.

 

I also 100%'d part of last weeks challenge, to which I promised myself some nice colored pencils for the color coding part of my tracker!    So I got some Prismacolors coming in today!

I noticed something today guys...  this is big for me.

 

For the first year of my loose BuJo'ing, I used a disc journal, pages easily added or removed!    I got an actual softcover, bound, dot journal though and for this past four weeks, I've used that!  WITHOUT tearing pages out, and leaving old weeks in to reflect on and...  not worry too much about lack of 'perfect set up' or anything!    Verrrrryyy interesting!

Accepting imperfections is a huge deal. Awesome progress! 

 

How do you feel about keeping those pages in your journal?

It's weird... hard at times haha.    But I am gonna tough it out. :)   That I have added colored pencils to the mix is very helpful.  If nothing else, I like the splash of color on otherwise grey days!

For me, I think just starting the Bullet Journal process from the ground up was a major accomplishment. Compared to the others I have seen on this forum, mine is certainly not flashy. Hell, I bought the notebook I am using from a $1 store! But it allowed me to make a start with the idea, and see if I can make it work for me. I can. And I think I even got a little bit into the artistic side of it with my workout tracking chart. At first I had a default "shuriken" logo I used to mark each box for a task complete, regardless of the task (I was a bit shuriken obsessed at the time). By the final week I had developed specific little graphics for each type of task: a cartoon-ish weight with "84 kg" written on the side of it for my bodyweight routines (84 kg roughly being equivalent to my bodyweight in metric units), also a yin-yang symbol for doing tai chi, and of course the shuriken for actual shuriken practice. I plan to continue on with this, maybe having unique graphics for additional kinds of weapon/ martial arts practice, and a little cartoon-ish Buddha for meditation.

 

Bottom line, the Bullet Journal is not going away.

Week 4 Reflection.

For the first time in a long while I have not just tracked the current week and how I did day to day. I didn't feel creative in a "lets full this page up" kinda way, but I had a whole page and a half left over from week 4 so I made a table comparing the 5 weeks of the challenge with one-another and reflecting on where I am, where I've been and where I'm headed.

And repeating past art does look pretty in the end afterall.

Nice looking challenge spread you have there. You're going to have to update us on how it works out for you!

This is awesome! I'm glad you have discovered what is working for you and that it's even evolved over the last 4 weeks. It doesn't matter how flashy your journal is. The only thing that matters is that it WORKS for you. Love this little graphics you described. :)

Awesome job and I'm glad you were using it for more than just tracking. :) 

 

My own week 4 reflection:

 

I'm still getting intimidated by a blank page. I need to work on filling the space creatively so I need to get used to a page that doesn't look as appealing as I want it to look. I hate wasting space in my bujo but it's hard to fill the space. Practice will help and that's what I plan on doing. Also, I suck at tracking. I do so well in the beginning then even when I work on my bujo, I forget to track. I might have to make that part of my next challenge. Lol

Thank you, Jonesy, for running this. How do y'all feel about doing this again next challenge?

 

We could rotate "leadership", if you feel that's better... my hand's up there.

Consistency for me is number one on my list; I can definitely see improvements over the last month but have a bit to go on that front. I'd definitely be for having another Bujo accountability thread next challenge :) thanks for making this one
