Bullet journaling is my secret weapon to staying organised. If you don’t know what a Bullet journal is read this post ‘Why you NEED a bullet journal’
Doing a monthly review of my bullet journal helps me look at a big-picture overview of how my month went, instead of getting caught up in the day-to-day details. We spend time every month making trackers and setting goals, doing a monthly review to reflect on our lives and celebrate the successes and learn from the failures is a natural extension to your month. Doing a bullet journal monthly review can be a valuable practice to get into. It can be as simple or extensive as you like.
The monthly review is a page that allows you to summarize all that you’ve learned, accomplished from the previous month and hence think more about the future how to improve it and don’t fall within the same mistakes once again.
What To Include
Some helpful topics to include in your bullet journal monthly review are:
- The month in a few words.
- My goals and what I did towards them.
- Most challenging thing.
- What made me happy.
- What didn’t work.
- Lessons learned.
- What to improve and how your going to do it.
- Important events.
- Habit tracker data
Goals are something that I find needs to be reviewed at a minimum monthly. You may even want to have a separate page just for your goals review. Some useful goals topics for this review are:
- What did you do towards your goals this month?
- Win of the month – What’s your biggest achievement?
- What goals are you struggling with and why?
- Things to change next month.
- Lessons learned.
- Goals for next month.
