Finally the second part is here, sorry if it took me so long to upload this article but I had a lot of homework this week.

Let's get started

🔸Use signifiers that work for you.
Signifiers are the types of bullet points you use in your journal. There are not set rules about establishing signifiers, and it heavily depends on the types of events you choose to journal. You can break down events into categories, such as work, school, bills, personal, creative projects, etc. Every type of event should have a different bullet point signifying its type.

🔸Organize your monthly goals into categories.
It can also help to categorize monthly goals in your monthly log. Instead of having a random list of bullet points lumping everything you need to do together, organize further. Separate your tasks by type.
👉For example, you could write headings like "Weight and Fitness Goals," "Deadlines and Due Dates," "Work Goals," and "Creative Goals."

🔸Store collections in the back of the journal.
Collections are broad to-do lists that you want to accomplish over the course of a year. It basically includes anything that is not a log. For example, collections can include books you want to read, movies and TV shows you want to watch, recipes you want to try, and so on.

🔸Fill out daily events that matter to you.
As you track your day log, fill out events according to your preference. This depends heavily on why you're keeping the bullet journal. If it's primarily to organize work goals, for example, you can track what occurred at work each day. However, the journal does not have to be entirely professional.

🔸Cross off items as you complete them.
Each time you complete a task, flip back to your monthly log. Cross off the task on your broad to-do lists.

🔸Transfer important uncompleted tasks to the next month.
At the end of each month, review your monthly log and daily log. See which tasks you have completed and which still need to be done. Set up a new monthly and daily log, the same way you did before. Transfer the uncompleted tasks to the next log.

🔸Add long-term goals to your future log.
You want to continue building on your future log over time. As you glance through your daily and monthly logs for the past month, see what longterm tasks are included. For example, if you're working on a graduate thesis, it will likely pop up in your logs over time.

🔸Make notes on projects specific to you.
It can help to eventually make a project log or list in the back of your bullet journal. This can help you track long term projects. You can make a list that says something like "Yearly Projects." When reviewing each monthly log, flip back to this list. This will remind you of any short term goals regarding longstanding projects you should add to each month.
