Starting a Prayer Tracker in your Bullet Journal

Bullet Journal Prayer Tracker |

Praying for one another is the first act of serving others that a Christian learns to do. We pray for the protection of our families. We pray for those who do not yet know Jesus Christ as their Savior. And we pray for our own spiritual growth. But sometimes we forget to pray as we ought to. This is why I have included a Prayer Tracker in my Bullet Journal.

Christian Bullet Journal – October Flip-through

Christian Bullet Journal

I’ve finished making my first monthly Bullet Journal flip-through. I can tell you one thing for sure, it is different from other Bullet Journals. You see, I’m a Christian and that means I have a Christian Bullet Journal. Well sort-of…

I mean, a Bullet Journal is an inanimate object, it can’t be a Christian. But a Bullet Journal tends to reflect the personality of it’s creator. Since I am a Christian, my bullet journal will reflect that.

5 characteristics of life dreams

Characteristics of life dreamsHere is a question, what is the driving force behind your life?  Do you have life dreams and what are they?  I am convinced that everybody has at least one life dream, most of us have many life dreams.  Some of us have given up on our life dreams, others actively pursue them and then there are those that want to pursue their life dreams but find something is lacking in their ability to do so.

How do you recognize your life dreams?  I have found that the following are characteristics of life dreams:

  • They were created in childhood or as a young adult
  • They were the result of a fond memory or life changing moment
  • They have never gone away, it is always at the back of your mind
  • The themes behind the dream are intertwined with your personality
  • Choices you made that pulled you away from your dream are the ones you regret the most

Let me elaborate on the above points. Continue reading “5 characteristics of life dreams”

Bullet Journal: The easiest task management system

Simplest Task Management System - Bullet Journal

There are many task management systems out there to manage your to-do lists.  You could use David Allen’s Getting Things Done for example, but I have found that Getting Things Done is over complicated for entry level workers, and people who do a lot of work as it shows up.  That is why I love combining GTD with the Bullet Journal system by Ryder Carrol.  The Bullet Journal is an effective and easy task management system.

5 things you need to navigate your way through life

Mark Letley's Hobie Cat 14ft |

“The winds and waves are always on the side of the ablest navigators.” – Edward Gibbon.

When I first heard this quote, it sparked both my interest and that of my husband.  My husband, Mark, enjoys sailing.  He has a Hobie Cat 14ft.  The first time I went out on his boat I was amazed at how even a smallest wind would allow the boat to cruise steadily along, all it took was positioning the sail correctly.  This got me thinking, what does one need to do to navigate your way through life?

Getting Things Done Workspace at home

Desk at home, reorganized.
My desk at home before cleaning it
My desk at home before cleaning it.

On Saturday I cleaned up my workspace at home to minimize the clutter and make it more functional.  It was my intention to create a functional home workspace using principles from David Allen’s book “Getting Things Done”.  I have limited space to work with at home, since I only have a small desk that sits against a wall between the living room and kitchen.  Our living room and kitchen has an open plan design.  On this small desk I need place for my 3-tier inbox, writing surface and computer.
