The Little Bullet Book by David Sinden – Book Review
The Little Bullet Book is a simple to use and beautifully designed journal to keep track of your projects and goals. The book promises to help you make planning your life a pleasure.
A bullet journal takes ‘the place of a diary, jotter, life coach, personal assistant and planner’
The book is black and white and a handy small size if you wanted to carry it around. The author suggests using a mechanical pencil, but I’d used regular coloured pencils and planner stickers (lots of options on Etsy). Another option would be to use a blank notebook and copy the exercises over, or photocopy them so you can use them over and over again.
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken. – Oscar Wilde
The book is divided into months with different journaling exercises to do each time. Many of the journaling exercises in the book are common life coaching ones, like create a bucket list, vision boards and mission statement.
Some of the pages are repeated including:
- Monthly me
- Task tracker
- Me time
- Wheel of balance
There are ample inspiring quotes at the bottom of some pages.
Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life – Omar Khayyen
The second half of the book has 52 weekly double-pages with no dates, so you can start at any time of the year.
The Little Bullet Book is ideal for beginners who are interested in learning about bullet journaling but are frightened of blank pages and would make the perfect gift.
The Little Bullet Book is available from your favourite bookstore in paperback.
