Week 10: Rapid Logging (The Bullet Journal Method Book Club)

Hello Sunshine!

This week we’re excited to introduce a new co-host, Heidi! She’s been Bullet Journaling for a few years. She’s a great proponent of making the Bullet Journal your own while emphasizing checking out Ryder’s website to get started with the foundation first.


This week’s behind the scenes:

Rapid Logging

Pages 58 - 61

Welcome to Week 10 of The Bullet Journal Method Book Club! We're officially in the double-digits!! We hope you enjoyed the Q&A from Ryder Carroll where he answered some of our book club members' questions for Part I! :) If you haven't watched it yet, go check it out.

This week, we're excited to welcome a new co-host, Heidi @paperandinkco.heidi! She contributed her lovely handwriting for this week's image and we're delighted to have her!

Here are Heidi's thoughts for this week's discussion:
"I love the concept of living lists because they're the perfect embodiment of how organic the BuJo really is. 
I appreciate that Ryder encourages us to record the good AND the bad experiences and let them both teach us. Too often we want to forget about something that was uncomfortable instead of learning from it. Recording and reflecting on the "sweet and sour" makes the bullet journal a powerful tool for growth.

Recording those experiences in with Rapid Logging means it's not such a daunting task. There are times when you will want to take the time to journal, but Rapid Logging ensures those memories actually make on the paper!"

In addition, Donna @blushnblue:
"Would like to check in on ideas of remembering to Rapid Log the information that's been given in the moment. What if your BuJo is not available when a new task is given? For example: If the boss gives a new task with a deadline and the BuJo is in the locker then do you write it on a sticky note until BuJo is in hand or perhaps use the BuJo app? Which is quite easy/quick to use and just remember to reflect so that it does not get missed???"

Finally, Dee @decadethirty would like to know:
"What are you initial thoughts about Rapid Logging? If you've read ahead, what are some questions you want answered around Rapid Logging?"

This week's action list:

  1. Shorten your entries to make them rapid, see pages 60 - 61 to see traditional vs Rapid Logging examples.

  2. Rapid Log both good and bad experiences. Review them at the end of the week and reflect on what you've learned from them.

  3. Consider ways you might Rapid Log in the moment if you don't have your Bullet Journal with you.
