Being a business person is a very busy career to be in.
We’re talking of countless meetings and tasks here and there. And let’s also not forget the handful goals and milestones that one needs to achieve. And to give you a reality check – these can’t be all remembered mentally.
This is why planners come in handy especially for those in the business industry. These can be found anywhere, but the trouble here is that there are some that don’t exactly fit your needs and personality.
Good thing there is a solution to that matter – you can create your own through bullet journaling, the latest trend in planners today. This gives people the opportunity and creative freedom to personalize their datebooks.
Sounds overwhelming? Let us help you out.
Here are a few bullet journal layouts you can place in your own journal to help you keep track of your business to-do’s and goals.
A monthly spread
Of course, a planner is not a planner without an overview of your entire month. Use this spread to keep track of your meetings with clients or bosses. You can input your goals, both personal and work-wise, in this spread.
A goal page
Usually, businesses have targets to achieve at the end of the month. Keep track of them here. Be as detailed as you can. Don’t be afraid to run out of space. Because this is a bullet journal, space will always be available.
A weekly spread
A weekly spread includes everything that you can do for the entire week. For one week, you have enough space to input all your activities and deadlines, including your personal tasks.
And if you’re extra, you can go with the typical scheduled planner (you know, the ones that include the time, too?) to make sure that you won’t forget your meetings.
But if a weekly spread is too tight for you, you can try…
A daily log
This is pretty much like a weekly spread, only more spacious. This means you can have a larger penmanship for your deadlines and meetings, a separate block for your daily tasks, and even include your personal diary in. Imagine the things you can do for one page a day.
You have your goal spread, right? You can track them here. On a weekly basis (or whichever you’re comfortable with), input the progress of your projects, your ads, etc. A dedicated page for your milestones means you won’t have to scramble through your other pages looking for the most important things your business needs.
A month end overview
Take a look back on your spread for the month. Was everything achieved? Place your checklist here. Don’t lie to yourself when there are things that didn’t meet the target.
Now, should the unachieved goals be carried over to the next month? If so, place it down. Also, input in the areas that are needed to improve on for your business. Make it stand out, so every time you go through your planner, you would see this and be reminded.
You can do a lot more things with your bullet journal. These include:
All these and more can be done with you planner – just embrace your creative freedom! Don’t be afraid whether your planner looks bad or good. What’s important is that you understand the flow of your planner and having one doesn’t make you lose track of your tasks even more.
