The Bullet Journal System
While many have taken to using a Bullet Journal as a calendar and art journal in one, the Bullet Journal system was designed to be a distraction free task manager. Consisting of an Index, Collections, and Dailies, the system allows for a daily focus, collection of thoughts and other notes, and a way to track it all. Using symbols of varying types, one can at a glance see everything they have to do for the day, without tapping into apps, getting distracted, etc.
