So, you’ve started your new Bullet Journal. You did the basics first: you’ve included an index, a Future log, a Monthly log, and your Daily logs, all the things you need to be on your way to a more organized life. But the Bullet Journal isn’t used only as an agenda. Come into play: collections.
Collections: what are they?
Collections are not part of the usual daily planning: however, they can add to it nicely. Collections are unique entries, on a separate page, to write down and follow a project or a long-term goal. They are, for example, to-do lists that run for a few weeks or months.
According to Ryder Carroll, founder of the Bullet Journal (www.bulletjournal.com), collections are a gathering of notes and tasks relating to a common theme or goal.
These days, the Bullet Journal community has opened up the definition of collections. They are pages that can be about pretty much anything. The best thing about the Bullet Journal is that it can be whatever you want, and collections are just as versatile. Indeed, the user adapts it to their needs.
Here are some examples of popular collections in the Bullet Journal community:
- Tv series tracker
- List of books to read
- List of movies to see
- Work out tracker / weight loss tracker
- Spendings tracker / budget
- Inspirational quotes
Here are a few of my own collections in my Bullet Journal!
In short, collections can be anything you want. (I’m repeating myself)
Once upon a time, before I discovered the Bullet Journal, I was writing a lot of lists in many different notebooks, like the books I wanted to buy, the TV series I wanted to watch, my usernames and passwords, etc. As such, collections are a big part of my Bullet Journal!
