Anybody have any good layouts / designs for small-ish organizers / #bulletjournal trackers?
My pages are 9x14 cm which makes most designs somewhat impractical.

This month I learned: to use my #bulletjournal consistently at work, I have to do all my prioritizey task planning at the end of the day, and write the next day's to-do list before I leave. I can't do that shit in the morning.
There are productivity habits I've failed at my whole life because of #adhd, and then there are productivity habits I've failed at my whole life because I'm a circadian night owl trying to follow routines written by & for morning people...
I just discovered a minor drawback to using OneNote to do my #bulletJournal—you can't search for emojis... this is fine if you can take the time to go through each entry, but it's not so good if you're trying to find entries marked with ideas so you can go back and look at them... so far there's no other note-taking app I know of that does organization quite as well as OneNote, so I'll keep using it til I find something similar that can search by emoji. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I decided I'm gonna start bullet journaling again, but without the calendar elements. I think I need a non-public place to store thoughts and events again, and what better time to start than right now at the beginning of the year?
I use OneNote to journal with some organization and emojis to mark the entry type. I posted how I used to do it ages ago, so if you're curious how I do it digitally, I can fill you in and maybe give some tips!
@barthalion I used todoist before and I went into more detail about bullet journals on lobste.rs here -> https://lobste.rs/s/b3wpzv/best_do_list_system#c_x4gegy and probably more here under #bujo and #bulletjournal
I moved from digital/mixed to fully bullet journal on an A5 (Leuchtturm1917) notepad. That said a bujo is not an archive for looking things up. For that I have a synced folder with an alphabetical hierarchy of notes & stuff I keep for lookup but those are never tasks.
If you're wondering how my last year went.
- I stopped drinking (7 months now)
- I still don't smoke (over 3 years now, don't ever bother keeping the exact date)
- I left web development and work daily on BSD doing C, Shell & PostgreSQL
- Finally moved towns
- Got organized using a #bulletjournal
things I don't get when it comes to #BulletJournal:
- digital bujo with digital stickers (!!) instead of to-do list/notion/evernote
- gluing printed pages with handwritten font text on it
- putting that much time into writing things like "do laundry" "paint my nails" and calling yourself productive

@mulander I've completely digitised my #work #BulletJournal to ease sharing of knowledge and have better logging and searching of my daily work. I use a man.cgi(8) instance, read the pages with man(1) and search with apropos(1), but I'm considering switching to #gitit, as it's becoming more popular at work, and can be adapted to provide similar benefits.
My personal bullet journal is in a somewhat vegetative state, I update it from time to time, but not daily, I need a smaller book.
freehanded my #bulletjournal up to date. my new system works much faster and nicer for those days where my brain is too busy for sitting down to journal. now it's time to sleep n then hopefully do all of the things listed for tomorrow 🖤
