With so many productivity systems out there, how do you know which is the best and most effective for you?

While it certainly varies from one person to another, there exists a customizable method that you can implement using the most basic of tools — a pen and notebook.

The bullet journal, or "bujo" as enthusiasts call it, was invented by Ryder Carroll, a digital product designer from New York. As a mix between a to-do list and a journal, this method is an effective way to "track the past, organize the present, and plan for the future." The beauty of the setup is that it promotes productivity and at the same time, it's completely adaptable to anyone's lifestyle. 

Today's post is the beginning of a blog mini-series to showcase the bullet journal system as an effective method to increase productivity. I'll be explaining more in depth how the bullet journal works in the following weeks but for today, here's a short video about the features of the Leuchtturm1917 notebook, a popular tool among bullet journalists.
