Franzen recognizes that in order to create checklists that you actually stick with, they need to fill a need beyond "getting things done." They need to help you live the kind of life you want to live.
I am proud to report that my current bullet journal is still fully functional and I use it nearly every day.
Before I started bullet journaling, I missed meetings regularly, racked up several late payment fees, and constantly felt like I was playing catch-up. Now, things aren't perfect, but I make it to most of my appointments and pay, like, 90% of my bills on time.
I’m learning how to do things for myself. With no one watching, no one counting on me, just…doing it because it needs done, because it’s part of being healthy and happy and successful.
