A good bullet journal system makes your everyday life and tasks more transparent. You can support this with different notations and a table of contents, for which we will give a few examples in the post below. Get to know the most frequently used bujo symbols, and key markings!

Let’s see the true, classic bujo keys

If you have read the book Ryder Carrol: The Bullet Journal method, then you must have come across the classic bullet journal markings (the so-called bujo key).

This marking system is easy to follow and minimalistic – this way you can spend as little time as possible on the task listing. It is also ideal for beginners and newbies because it is simple and can be easily incorporated and re-integrated into everyday routines.

Combined with colors

The more experienced bujo users also often enhance their markings with colors, which are mostly used for thematic differentiation, for example, work, private life, children’s tasks, leisure time, financial matters.
