πŸŽ™ About The Episode

A lot of the time it can feel like we’re living our lives on autopilot, without considering how much or how little our day-to-day activities actually add value to our lives. But what would happen if you took the time to study your life and figure out what kind of life you want using the magic of intentionality? In this episode, I speak to Ryder Carroll, the creator of the bullet journal, about his self-discovery productivity method that helps you organise your thinking around the things that matter to you and ultimately reach your goals. Ryder invented the bullet journal method after being diagnosed with learning disabilities early in life and was forced to figure out alternate ways to be focused and productive. Bullet journaling has now exploded into a global community, used by thousands of people (including me) to effectively track the past, order the present and design the future of their lives. Enjoy!
