A Fresh Look at Tracking: Quality and Quantity

by bujoboosted

February 2017

When I first started bullet journaling, more than 1  year ago, I knew very little about what it truly meant to track things.

I remember reading on a website something that sounded like ‘Bullet Journaling is the best system for keeping track of all different aspects of your life’.

“Great, amazing! That’s exactly what I need!” I said to myself as I first stepped into the Bullet Journaling realm.

There I met the famous habit tracker: a system that every single bullet journalist ends up using at least once in his/her journaling life.

A system that seemed to work very well for me… until I started realizing that I wasn’t using it the way it was meant to be used; I wasn’t only tracking habits (actions that you want to get done every day).

Since it had tracker in the name, I would use the spread to generally track stuff.

And it was just a big mess.

These past few months I’ve gone through a long process of reshaping my journal and the way I use the system in order to be able to truly track all different aspects of my life .

 I’ve realized how important it is to first think about what you want to track in terms of Quality vs Quantity, and then decide what kind of tracker you want to use.

In these 2 videos I’m going back to the basics of tracking and I’m showing you how you can finally improve your tracking system!

I hope you’ll find the videos useful!

    I really liked your idea of quality tracking. I think it will work better for me as a way of tracking my quality of sleep and mood. Also I think it will help track health issues faster – how I’m feeling each day without getting overly involved and wont be so time consuming. Thank you for sharing!!
