Hey hey, it’s MJ,
Last comparison post of the year, now in all honesty I am writing this post in October so it’s going to be some time before this actually gets posted. I have been enjoying doing these comparison posts or evolution posts. I feel like I end up talking about how different 2018 is from 2021 and guess what; that’s okay. We all grow and change in our creative processes and here we are.
So this post is comparing my habit trackers, I for sure have changed my habit trackers over the years and so now instead of one page it’s two pages every month and I like tracking things. It’s also just me looking at my month and going “wow, I have not done that a lot or at all this month and that’s kind of a problem.” Well, here we are.
With a habit tracker I have seen people track multitudes of different things, I may track things different than others and that’s totally okay.
2018: From the beginning to the end of 2018, I for sure added a bunch of different things to my habit tracker I started out tracking seven things and by December I was tracking 10 things. I still track most if not all of those things today, I have just added like a lot more since then. There is a lot that has changed since my original Bullet Journal and I look back at the lessons 2018 taught me, but I am glad to be moved on from it now in 2021.
2019: This was the first year that I did two different habit trackers. I am doing September of every year because why not. 2019 I clearly just stopped tracking things in September, that was my problem in my first few. I didn’t do it with the same consistency that I do now. I tracked a total of 21 things in 2019. I still track more now. This was another learning year because I did have two trackers.
2020: 2020 was difficult, I mean we all know that. September of 2020 was rough for me, pretty much because I was sick for part of it. In 2020 I tracked 22 things instead of 21, so I didn’t add too many things but in 2020 I tracked how many days a month I did things. (I didn’t really care about that but I put it in again this year and have not filled any of them out.)
‘2021: Here we are in the current year, in my current Bullet Journal I am still tracking 22 things. This year though, I put the days of the week below the numbers because I saw that on Pinterest and I loved that idea so I rolled with it. Like I said above I put the number of days completed at the bottom. I have never used them this year because I didn’t want to. It just didn’t serve me this year just it didn’t serve me last year either.
2022: This one is a preview to my 2022 habit trackers; I am tracking 24 things next year. I have changed some of them because I want to make sure that I am tracking what I need and want to track throughout my year. I will probably do quotes underneath each like I used to because that was fun, I just don’t know yet though so we will find out next year. Honestly, I just put more Washi Tape underneath it because I didn’t want the pages to be too fussy.
So, there we have it, four and into five years of Bullet Journaling, next year I will have two Bullet Journals between my yearly and my book so we are in for a treat as I move through the year. I know that this post isn’t super long and these posts usually aren’t.
I am actually not sure when this post is going to go live, I have to check on my calendar. Beginning of December it looks like, so I hope everyone has a great start to the week and I will be back on Wednesday with another post.
Until then I hope that everyone stays safe, happy, and healthy!
