Goals Page

Goals Page Bujo
February Bullet Journal Goals Page

First and foremost, the first page I created was the February bullet journal goals page.

I divided a page into two columns.

On the left side, I wrote down my reflection where I am in my life currently. On the right side, I put where I want to be in a month.

Based on my Level 10 Life exercise, this year I strongly focus on my health, self-care, business, and creativity. For that reason, I created four rows for each category.

After reviewing the previous month, having a braindump session, and prioritizing with the Eisenhower matrix, I set February monthly goals and priorities.

February Bullet Journal Monthly Spread

Bullet Journal Ideas February
Bujo Classic Monthly Spread

In most cases, the next page I like to set up is a monthly overview in order to have all February’s appointments, events, birthdays gathered in one place.

In this case, I chose a classic monthly layout with thirty-five squares (3×3 cm each). 

Generally, I start a week from Monday, so I put all days of week above the table and highlighted them with a pink color.

Besides, on the left side, I left a space for February’s to-do list and future tasks.

February Habit Tracker & Mood Tracker

February Habit Mood Tracker
February Bullet Journal Trackers

On the next page, I created very simple trackers including habit and mood trackers.

Generally, what I like to do, is to sort all habits I want to track by the time of the day.

With this in mind, I wrote down my morning and evening routine with all days of the month and listed habits.

Also, I track my mood and a menstrual cycle together, so I put them below a list of daily habits.

Moreover, I created a motivational quote, but it’s completely optional.

February Bullet Journal Budgeting Spread

The next page is all about budgeting. If you’re wondering how I use it, here’s a blog post on how to master your finances with a bullet journal budget layouts.

In general, I wrote down all of the income sources, savings, irregular spending, fixed expenses, and then I budgeted the rest for essential and optional costs.

Bujo Weekly Spread

Again, referring to my bullet journal page with goals and priorities, I broke them down into weekly goals. Based on them, I created a weekly schedule just to have an overall view of what’s going to happen.

Because of that, I left blank spaces for a weekly overview, this week’s to-do list, reminders, and tasks for next week.

Also, I put a mini-calendar in the left corner.

Weekly Meal Planner

Because of food expenses are the most expensive things within a monthly budget, planning all meals definitely helps get it under control. So if you want to learn more, check out this bullet journal meal planning blog post.

This month I created a simple table with seven columns (for seven days) and four rows (for four meals). Below I left some space for meal prep activities.

Expense Tracker

Another way to control your expenses is by creating an expense tracker.

I divided a page into two rows- the first one designated for essential expenses, the second one for optional ones.

Daily Logs with Mini-Goals, Affirmations, and Gratitude Prompts

Bullet Journal February Daily Log
February Bullet Journal Daily Log

Recently I’ve started working on my daily routine by creating daily logs.

Unquestionably, it was a turning point in my productivity.

So this is how I created the February bullet journal daily log.

Firstly, I drew ten squares (1x1cm) as my Pomodoro tracker. 

Just in case you’re not familiar with what Pomodoro technique is, basically it’s a time management method while you’re working in 25-5 minutes intervals (25 minute work, 5 minute break). 

In order to stay even more accountable, I like to put down specific hours and assigned tasks.

Moreover, I left some empty space for daily affirmation, small goals for today, day review, and daily gratitude.

In my opinion, it’s better to write your daily affirmations and daily gratitude prompts ahead. 

From my experience, it allows you to start your day on a positive mindset right away, and finish your day peacefully with ease.

My daily affirmations for the first week of February are:

  • I am patient
  • I love the person I am becoming
  • Progress is better than perfection
  • I am proud of myself
  • everything will work out for me
  • I am unique
  • I choose what I become

Besides, keeping a gratitude log, contrary to appearances, may be challenging. 

Obviously, it’s so easy to say that you should write about what you’re grateful for. 

However, when you want to write it, it’s hard to come up with something. For that reason, gratitude journal prompts might be so helpful.

With this in mind, here are my February gratitude journal prompts.

February Gratitude Journal Prompts

Daily Gratitude Journal

Today I am grateful for:

  • the ability to…
  • something I use today
  • my favorite treat
  • one thing I love about myself
  • one thing I love about my job
  • my favorite thing when you wake up in the morning
  • something funny that made me laugh

You can find more examples here.

Braindump Page With The Eisenhower Matrix

Weekly Review Page Braindump

Also, I created a braindump page. Later, I’ll write down all the things I have in my head and sort them by a priority using the Eisenhower matrix. 

Weekly Review Page 

Undoubtedly, reviewing your week on a regular basis helps you to stay accountable and track your progress toward goals.

February Bullet Journal Cover Page

Quote February Bullet Journal
Quote For Bullet Journal

Last but not least, here’s my bullet journal monthly cover. 

Obviously, I created it first. But I want to show you that it’s a completely optional step to complete. Absolutely, you don’t have to be an artist in order to keep a bullet journal.

In this case, because I’m a huge fan of hand lettering, I created bullet journal monthly cover as a daily lettering practice.

However, it will affect neither good nor bad my productivity.

For February, I chose a quote

Get Glowing. The World Needs Your Magic

Here’re other self-love quotes for the February bullet journal you may want to use in your February bullet journal.
