What is a bullet Journal?

The Bullet Journal is an analog system created by Ryder Carroll, a designer based in New York. In his words, the Bullet Journal is meant “to help you track the past, organize the present, and plan for the future.” It’s an amazing system that keeps a record of everything you could ever want to toss at it. It can hold secrets, plans, achievements and more.
