From Medium: Keep it Simple: Make Bullet Journaling Work for You

Most people skip the basics, like rapid logging in your bullet journal.

I have ADD and memory issues. I’ve tried many tools over the years to help me remember my life. Bullet journaling was one of the first tools that really ‘clicked’ for me and I’ve been using it for around four years.

For the uninitiated: bullet journaling is a simple method of organizing your life, a productivity system, and a journal all-in-one. You can start with just a notebook and a pen. Because it is so adaptable, some people go overboard trying all the pieces of the system without mastering the basics. Rapid logging is one of those basic things.

It’s just a way of writing notes as you go through your day — part to-do list and part a running stream of consciousness.
