Bullet Journals - a useful analogue tool in a digital age

Writing in a journal has many positive benefits — it’s been proven to improve mental and physical health, reduce stress, and even boost your self-esteem. Research shows that writing down words on paper helps you remember things more than if you typed them. 

You may already use a range of digital tools to organise your life. Try something new!  Bullet journaling is a way of using simple tools (from as little as a single notebook and a pen), to organise your time. Instead of having a weekly planner, a notebook for jotting down to-do lists, and various meeting notes scattered around, you’ll roll them all into one journal.

The system uses symbols, an index, and creativity to make future planning efficient and effective. Your blank notebook is the foundation to create pages that include your to-do lists, events, appointments, and other important information. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to set up and use your journall, but in this session Brittany will show you design methods and techniques that you can take away and use in your own journal. 

This is a practical workshop, so please bring a pen and a notebook, or paper to write on. Blank pages, or dot-grid are useful layouts.

Non Project Management Institute New Zealand Chapter members are welcome to attend. $20 cash at the event entitles you to a drink, some nibbles, networking opportunities and the worksho 

PMI Certified members can claim one PDU for attending this session in the Technical Project Management (50%) and Strategic and Business Management (50%) aspects of the Talent Triangle. 


Brittany Goodwin is a policy advisor, working in the public sector. Her bullet journal helps her keep her various tasks and events in check, and stay on top of her deliverables.

Brittany holds a BSc (Hons) and a MSc from the University of Auckland in Social Geography, and she maintains that tactile organisation got her through the hours of staring at a computer screen. She also tutored for two years while at university, teaching issues around housing, conservation, urbanism, and social justice. Now an office worker, Brittany uses her bullet journal to unplug from the work day and reflect on her upcoming goals.
