I recently sorta, kind of and slightly fell in love with bullet journaling.
Anyone else on this train?
As a productivity-obsessed gal, my love for the bujo’s was inevitable.
Bullet journaling is now officially my jam.
If you’re looking for inspiration for your bullet journaling needs, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I’ll be sharing my favorite bullet journal quotes, ever.
Whenever you’re stuck or feeling uninspired, using quotes in your bullet journal can really help.
You can spruce the quotes up as you like – with colors, stickers, creative lettering and make ’em you.
I often start every bullet journal entry with a quote to kick things off from a happy and inspiring place.
Inspirational quotes for bullet journaling is also an amazing way to give you that extra nudge you need towards your goals.
I hope this post can be the nudge and encouragement you need.
What Is Bullet Journaling?
Just in case you’re NOT on the bullet journaling train yet and have no clue what I’m on about…
Bullet journaling or the “BuJo” was created by Ryder Carroll and has quickly become one of the most trendy ways to journal when it comes to productivity, organization and goal setting. That is how I use it anyway.
Doodling and making lists has never been more fun or effective.
And you can keep everything – all your thoughts, ideas, to-do’s and so on – organized (and pretty lookin’) in your favorite notebook.
It’s best described as a mindfulness practice disguised as a productivity system.
Ryder himself states that the BuJo is meant “to help you track the past, organize the present, and plan for the future.”
