I decided to separate my personal bullet journal for work because I wanted to make sure my personal stuff to stay, well, personal and private.

The start of 2024 I set up a new Bullet Journal (BuJo) for work with all the key information.

  • Key dates, including holidays.
  • Training days.
  • Additional CPD events.
  • Meetings.
  • Weekly goals/task.
  • Collections (projects).

The process is tedious at first. I have found, through experience, to remove the parts of the BuJo system I don’t need in work. This allows me to take sure I only choose what is essential and eliminate the clutter.

My blue BuJo for work - from Tesco.

I was going to spend above £30 for a work BuJo. Luckily, I found the local Tesco (UK shop) had some dotted notebooks with 100gsm paper for £10. I am more than happy with what I have within.

It’s the first time I have seen a retail company like Tesco supply this type of notebook. It is clearly geared towards the BuJo community. Furthermore, it even has dedicated index pages and a wallet at the back to support loose pieces of paper.

Future log supports events tasks throughout the year.

Most of my bullet journal is set up. I made sure I spent time filling in the future log with all the key dates and upcoming department meetings.

My first collection (project) was created, too. I plan to make a significant update to the school’s website because I want the student area to be full of useful information and resources.

I always refer to the following video by Ryder Carroll when setting up my BuJo. It is a quick tutorial for getting the basics right.

I also record information into the Twos app because I like to have a digital companion. Twos is the closest thing I have found to the bullet journal in digital form. I use lists for my collections, and I take advantage of Siri to quickly capture a note or task. I find Twos is better for referencing and bookmarking websites I find. I would rather not spend my time writing out URLs into my work BuJo.

If you are interested in trying out Twos for your digital Bullet Journal, use my referral link to get 200 additional coins towards some Pro features such as AI, tags, templates, alerts, highlighting, hyperlinks, custom themes, focus timer, and much more.
